Singer Celine Dion has been diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare neurological disorder characterized by an abnormal posture. People with the disorder become sensitive to loud street noises, as they trigger spasms and falls.

Dion opened up about it on her Instagram, as she shared a video in which she can be seen teary eyed, disclosing the diagnosis with her fans and followers.

“I’ve been dealing with problems with my health for a long time and it’s been really difficult for me to face these challenges and to talk about everything that I’ve been going through,” the songstress revealed. 

The diagnosis has affected Dion’s European Tour dates, as she has canceled eight of her summer shows scheduled for 2023, and postponed Spring 2023 shows to 2024. 

Dion was married to Rene Angélil, who was also her manager until his death in 2016. The couple had three children- René-Charles Angélil and twins Eddy and Nelson Angélil.  

Who are Eddy and Nelson Angélil? 

Eddy and Nelson Angélil are the twin sons born to singer Celine Dion and her late husband- Rene Angélil on October 23, 2010, after Dion suffered through a miscarriage in 2009. The twins are siblings to René-Charles Angélil, Dion and Angélil’s eldest son.

Dion keeps the twins out of the spotlight, but she has shared some snaps of them along with the family in the past. She posted photos of them on their birthday in 2019. In the first photo, the two stood side by side and in the other one, they pulled funny faces for the shot. “Double the laughter and double the love. Happy 9th Birthday, Nelson and Eddy! I’m so very proud of my boys. I love you! – Mom xx.” Dion captioned the photo.

Dion also shared about the special bond she developed with her twin children, especially after the death of her husband. “I organize myself to not feel lonely. So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them…I need them close. When it’s time for them to say they want their room, their room’s ready,” Dion told The Sun. 

The twins are currently 12 years old.
