Emotional: Celine Dion with her Rene Angelil and her son Rene-Charles

Last week we brought you the news that Celine Dion had been admitted to hospital in a bid to delay the early arrival of her IVF twins.

Well, they only managed to stay put until Saturday when Celine and her hubby, Rene Angelil, welcomed twin boys into the world.

Speaking on a Canadian chat show, he said,

"We have tried five times since March 2009 to conceive. It's been very hard, so on Saturday at 11.11pm, 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."

The couple have an older son, Rene-Charles who's nine, and he's said to be thrilled with the news that he's got baby brothers.

On the day the family were going to discover the sex of the babies, he said, "I hope there's not too many girls in there!"

That's CUTE!

The boys arrived a month early by c-section weighing 5lbs 4 and 5lbs 10 and as yet don't have names -  any suggestions anyone?
