Speaking out about her struggle to conceive a second child came naturally to line Dion. “I’ve always been an open book,” she noted recently to Good Morning America.

Vowing to take “one step at a time” the 41-year-old songstress stays positive by focusing on the good and remembering that she’s not alone.

“It’s something very beautiful when you want to conceive and when you want to be parents again, when you want to be blessed again,” she notes. “And for me to share this is about also bonding with other women that are going through the same thing.”

Calling pregnancy “priceless,” Céline says that she and husband René Angélil are undeterred by the setbacks they’ve experienced.

“You know what? We had a miscarriage. We tried three more times. It did not work … We are trying again for the fifth try. It’s aboard right now. All aboard.”

Noting that their son René-Charles, 9, was conceived with the help of a fertility specialist — after six years of trying — Céline says she “can’t thank [the doctor] enough, to have this beautiful child.”

Making René-Charles a big brother has provided motivation for the couple, who married in 1994. She adds,

“It would be extraordinary to try and make this love of the family grow more. But I have — I have — to try.”

Being a mom is “a blessing,” Céline says, and something she likens to having “another heart that grows inside of you.”

That much is on full display in her new film Céline: Through the Eyes of the World, which chronicles her life on the Taking Chances tour. In one scene, Rene-Charles loses a cherished stuffed animal; When it is recovered, Céline’s relief was palpable.

“It was like the biggest joy,” she recalls. “I was like, ‘Oh! Thank you! Thank you.'”
