Celine Dion on Her Struggle for Another Child

by JUJU CHANG and THEA TRACHTENBERG,  ABC News,  Feb 18, 2010

Conceiving has not been easy for the 41-year-old Celine Dion and she has shared her private struggle with the public. Dion underwent her fifth round of in vitro fertilization on Friday.

"I've always been an open book. My way for me to deal with my own situation is that I take one step at a time. It's something very beautiful when you want to conceive and when you want to be parents again, when you want to be bless again. And for me to share this is about also bonding with other women that are going through the same thing," Dion said.

Dion has been candid about the emotional roller coaster of trying to conceive a baby, speaking about the doctors, appointments, shots and medicine that is involved. But the superstar says the ups and downs are worth enduring to create a life.

"It's priceless. So you know what? We had a miscarriage. We tried three more times. It did not work. ... We are trying again for the fifth try. It's aboard right now. All aboard," Dion said.

She is not ready to give up, in part because she has been through this before. Dion and her husband Rene Angelil tried for six years before turning to a fertility clinic for help conceiving their now 9-year-old son. Read more and watch the video.
