Celine Dion Tells Oprah (the World) About Her Struggles with Infertility


a blog by the editors, Feb. 11, 2010

Ok, I’m positively gushing! The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived!

FINALLY, a celebrity has stepped forward to talk honestly and openly about her struggles with infertility. Kudos to Celine Dion.

While, no doubt she’s uber-talented, I’ve never been a big fan. But that’s changed. I watched this clip of Celine on Oprah discussing her numerous IVFs (she’s getting ready for her fifth), her recent miscarriage and her secondary infertility (her son, Rene Charles is eight years old).

Publically. In a BIG way. On Oprah!

I am so impressed by her openness, honesty and willingness to share her struggles. But the thing about the interview that struck me most was her ATTITUDE. She’s very realistic about her journey, yet is upbeat (to say the least!)

THANKS, Celine, for taking the shame out of infertility!

Now, who knows the way to the Celine Dion Fan Club?

Bummer. It looks like the site that was hosting the video took it down. We removed the link here too. Sorry about that.
