celine dion names twins

Awww!

Celine Dion has named her newborn twin boys Nelson and Eddy Angelil!

She explained that "Nelson" is a tribute to Nelson Mandela, while "Eddy" is named after French songwriter Eddy Marnay, who helped launched her career at the tender age of 13.

Her hubby, Rene Angelil, said:

"When Saturday at 11:11 came, and they showed us the first baby that was crying, we were crying. It was a very emotional moment, and even though we didn't speak to each other, we were both thinking about the time it took. We are very lucky, very privileged and very fortunate to have these boys."

Very cute! We love that the names are special to them.

    FOR THE KIDS SAKE, HOPE THEY DONT LOOK LIKE EITHER OF THEM. HORSE FACE OR A FAT COW - NOT MUCH TO SELECT ON THE MENU. NEXT.

    Nelson Eddy was the actor who played a Mountie in the movie Rose Marie in 1936. That's who she named the kids after. For more exclusive celebrity news, just ask me. You suck.

    I wonder if she ever heard of 'Nelson Eddy' the singer from the 30's?



  5. 5

    that's the best she could come up with?

    I guess on the plus side, kids of that generation will probably have no idea who Nelson Eddy was. I hope, though, if she has twin girls someday that she doesn't name them Jeanette and MacDonald. Geez.

    wow Nelson and Eddy.. you are absolutely right Perez, Eddy Marney is the man who helped her launched her career!! Celine adored Marney and i'm not surprised she named it after him. :) i'm sure she got two gorgeous babies, just like her first son - what a cutie!

    congrats Celine and Rene!! I never heard of celine talking about Nelson Eddy the actor from the 30's, that would be pure coincidence.

    Nelson is after Mandela…It's unfortunate that when I hear that name, I don't think of him but Nelson Muntz from the Simpsons.

    Re: NoTalentBlogger – It's not at all about this actor. It is indeed about Nelson Mandela and Eddy Marney. That's what René Angelil explained at the beginning of the 1h tv special about Céline yesterday…

    Finally a celeb who names their children something NORMAL! It's just horrible to name a child Appl or Suri or Zuma any of the other crazy names that celebs pick. Why do that to somebody? Good job Celine!
