To prevent the premature birth of her twins, Celine Dion has been hospitalized in Florida as a precaution, hospital officials said on Monday.
Celine Dion, 42, was admitted on the recommendation of her doctors “to prevent the early delivery of her babies which is the standard of care for any patient with twin pregnancy in this clinical setting,” St Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach Florida said in a statement.
Celine Dion and her husband Rene Angeli have a nine-year-old son and the twin boys she is expecting in November are the result of a sixth in-vitro fertilization attempt, according to media reports.
Some media reports claimed that Dion had scheduled a caesarean section delivery for October 22 but Florida hospital denied the reports and handpicked her nursing staff and asked for rooms for her security team.
“At no time did Ms. Dion or her husband make any special demands or requests of the hospital. She is not scheduled at any predetermined date for her delivery. She has not requested or selected any particular staff or accommodations not available to other patients,” the statement said.
