Celine Dion Would Love to Have Another Baby

Three-time mom Celine Dion says she would love to do it again – have another baby, that is.

The superstar singer has conceived twice through in vitro fertilization (IVF) with the help of Zev Rosenwaks, MD, director of the Center for Reproductive Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City.

Her first son, Rene Charles, is now 10 years old, and her twin boys, Eddie and Nelson, will turn 1 this October.

In A Baby at Last!, written by Dr. Rosenwaks and Marc Goldstein, MD, director of the Center for Male Reproductive Medicine and Microsurgery at Weill Cornell, Dion wrote:

“When I think about my association with Dr. Zev Rosenwaks, I think about the extraordinary talent and intelligence that allows him to combine nature and genius, to create new life.

I am forever in awe of this, and I’m forever grateful for his wonderful talent.”

On “Good Morning America” on September 20, when asked if she would like to add to her family, Dion said:

“We’d love to.”

”It’s the biggest gift that you can offer yourself.”

She added: “Is it gonna be possible?

“Is it gonna happen?”

“I don’t know.”

Dion’s wish for more children will be part of the 90-minute documentary, “Celine: 3 Boys and a New Show,” airing October 1 on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Dion told GMA “Now I’m in my 40s and I think I’m blessed with my family and husband (Rene Angelil).

I’m very privileged to have them.

It’s what I’m the most proud of, my family, my kids.”

In her book, Celine Dion: My Story, My Dream, published just after Rene Charles’ birth, Dion wrote about the meaning of family.

“The one thing that we have been working on so hard all these years is this family.

To us, this great family is more important than anything else, and no other accomplishment makes us so proud.”

She also discussed plans back then to give birth again.

“The idea of having another baby is already in the back of my mind.

One of my eggs that been inseminated with Rene’s sperm is kept at the fertility clinic.

It will be possible to place it back in my uterus.

If everything goes well and, and it’s God’s will, my belly will once again be home to a child from the man I love.”

And now shes thinking of the possibility of a third IVF procedure.

“I think the best is yet to come,” she said.

NY Resident magazine book review

Welcome to my new blog. My current news is the positive responses I’ve been getting regarding my latest book, A Baby At Last!

A very favorable review ran in this month’s issue of the Resident magazine.

A Couples’ Guide to Getting Pregnant

“Everyone seems to know someone who has a fertility problem…”  That’s the start of  A Baby At Last!: The Couples’ Complete Guide to Getting Pregnant—from Cutting-Edge Treatments to Common Sense Wisdom by Mark L. Fuerst, Zev Rosenwaks, M.D., and Marc Goldstein, M.D.

This book is for every couple seeking a solution to fertility problems. It conveys the knowledge that you are not alone and much can be done. You’ll learn when to seek help, how to find doctors and ask the right questions, what tests are worth having and why. The book covers up-to-date therapies and provides support for the emotional rollercoaster of fertility treatments.

Céline Dion’s many failed attempts at in-vitro fertilization were heartbreaking but in October 2010 the 42-year-old singer gave birth to twin boys. She said, “When I think about Dr. Rosenwaks and the extraordinary talent and intelligence that allows him to combine nature and genius to create new life, I am in awe and forever grateful for his talent.”

“Sugar” Ray Leonard, six-time world boxing champion, said, “One of my toughest fights was to father children with my loving wife, Bernadette. After two failed surgeries, I found Dr. Goldstein. My greatest victories are my Olympic gold medal, my world titles, and my family, the last one with thanks due to Dr. Goldstein.”

Mark L. Fuerst’s writing talents shine. Publishers Weekly said, “The text is reader-friendly and accentuated with informative ‘Take Home Messages’ that will help couples expand their knowledge and foster fertility success.”
