Celine Dion just announced the happy news that she is expecting her second child, and in a new interview the singer’s doctor opens up about the lengthy process Celine and husband Rene Angelil endured to get pregnant a second time.
“You could hear her chuckling,” Dr. Zev Rosenwaks, who performed the in vitro procedure that made 41-year-old Celine get pregnant, said of the singer’s reaction to the news that the pregnancy test was positive. Dr. Zev also dished that the embryo she implated in Celine was frozen for eight years, from the first time she underwent the procedure, which resulted in now eight-year-old son Rene-Charles. After Celine’s run in Las Vegas ended, she came back to the doctor to try to have another baby and now – Voila! On the way!
“She is feeling well. So far, so good. I look forward to feeling the fetal heartbeat. Rene and Celine are both looking forward to a pregnancy that is a healthy one,” Dr. Zev said. Hopefully this Dr. Zev talks to Celine before she does interviews like this blabbing to People! [Photo: Getty Images]

Madonna celebrated her 51st birthday over the weekend in Portofino, Italy, looking her usual age-defying self. Accompanied by her children and boyfriend Jesus Luz, the pop superstar took in a boat trip with everyone wearing custom-made Madonna t-shirts (she’s still a diva superstar, after all) followed by a dinner at the chi-chi Splendido hotel.
Cuddling up to her boy-toy on the yacht, it was clear to see the couple are very much on, although we have to question Madge’s choice of swimwear. Wearing a sport vest and baggy shorts, Madonna looked more like an Edwardian bather – especially with that frilly parasol – than the ripped superstar we know she is. If even Madonna doesn’t want to wear a bikini after three hour workouts each day, what does that say?! [Photos: Splash News Online]
With a mama like Madonna, it’s only natural that Lourdes Leon, 12, loves the finer things in life. Lourdes looked chic as she vogued out of the window of her luxury suite in Portofino, experienced fine Italian dining, and swam in the pool while vacationing with her mom, her mom’s boyfriend Jesus Luz, and siblings Mercy, Rocco, and David Banda. Looks like a little Diva In Training to us! [Photos: Splash News Online]
