Celebrity Parents Céline Dion 'relieved' that René-Charles loves school By Staff Author Published on February 8, 2008 07:49 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Céline Dion, mom to 7-year-old son René-Charles, was initially anxious about taking her little boy on tour with her, as it would require homeschool. Having had a negative experience with education herself, the 39-year-old songstress had her doubts about her son’s reaction to school. Luckily, her worries were for naught. Yes, René-Charles has been homeschooling for almost two years now. It was a big, big concern for me — the school thing. My husband was extremely smart in school, but I wasn’t. I didn’t want my son to suffer my experience of school. He’s started first grade, but he’s in second grade in math. It’s such a relief for me that he loves school, and he’s succeeding. I couldn’t ask for better. Céline’s concert, Céline Dion: That’s Just The Woman In Me, premieres February 15th at 9 pm on CBS. Source: TV Guide, February 11th issue, p. 24-25.
