HELLO! CANADA talks to the superstar and her husband René Angelil as they eagerly await the birth of their twins

TORONTO, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - She's eight months pregnant and in the hospital, but 42-year-old Celine Dion is feeling "very well" and "very, very privileged and fortunate," she tells HELLO! Canada in an exclusive and intimate interview yesterday.

The megawatt superstar has been admitted to hospital as "a precaution," she tells HELLO! Canada, just days after proudly showing off her pregnancy in a stunning exclusive photo shoot for HELLO! at the Jupiter Island, Fla., mansion she shares with husband René Angélil, 68, and their son, René-Charles, 9.

Amid 12 pages of stunning exclusive photos at their home, Celine and René share for the first time the full story of their emotional journey, their struggle to conceive, their joy at becoming parents again, and reveal their son's feelings about his soon-to-emerge little brothers.

HELLO! Canada's editor-in-chief Alison Eastwood spoke to Celine and René. Here's a small sampling of what they told her:

• Celine on in-vitro fertilization: "IVF is difficult emotionally, but you have to keep in mind that you are so fortunate to have a family, you are a mom, you have a husband and you are lucky."

René on loving all his children: "When (son) René-Charles was born, I understood what a miracle was. I would have died for him."

HELLO Canada's world exclusive with Celine Dion is on newsstands across the country beginning Thursday, Oct. 21.
