This is just so heart-wrenching.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Celine Dion's late husband René Angélil died after falling out of his bed. So sad!

In a recent interview with Paris Match magazine, Miz Dion opened up about René's heartbreaking last moments. As you surely know, the hitmaker lost her longtime love to cancer back in January after years of battling the disease.

Apparently, the music producer's body was discovered by a "distraught" nurse. To make matters worse, the 48-year-old added that it was her man's dying wish to pass away in her arms, but she was performing the night of his death and had decided not to wake him up.

Miz Dion shared:

"René wanted to die in my arms but, alas, I was singing that night. He must have wanted to get up and he fell on the floor. Normally, after my show when he had taken his last medications, I gave him a kiss, tucking him in and sent him off to sleep. That evening I didn't want to wake him. It was the nurse who found him the next day. Distraught, she came to find me. I went into the room."

Tissues, anyone?

The My Heart Will Go On singer noted she was "haunted" for some time that René may've injured himself in his attempt to get up. Thankfully, after the doctor's confirmation that Angélil died without breaking any bones, Dion was able to come to terms with his death.

We can only imagine the devastation the entire Angélil/Dion family feels after losing their beloved patriarch. Our thoughts are with Celine and her brood as they continue to mourn René's passing.
