Céline Dion isn't pregnant after all – but will keep on trying for a second child.

"We are living the reality of the majority of couples who have to use [IVF]. The process can be long and arduous," Dion's husband René Angélil, 67, told the Canadian paper Journal de Montreal of their failed attempts. "But today, we are full of confidence. Celine is more determined than ever."

Forty-one-year-old Dion's doctor announced that she was pregnant via in vitro fertilization very early in the process, and it is now revealed that the embryos transferred in August and October were unsuccessful.


"Dr. Zev Rosenwaks believed that the procedure/pregnancy took, but that wasn't the case. We found out some days later. We were shocked," said Angélil. They quickly tried again to get pregnant, but were unsuccessful, he added, "But you know Céline. She doesn't let go."



The couple have one "extraordinary" son, René-Charles, born in 2001, who was also conceived with the help of Rosenwaks, director of the Ronald O. Perelman and Claudia Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Center Medical Center.

"I admire all the women who go through such a tough process. Since April, she has undergone numerous examinations, multiple hormone injections and blood tests," Angélil told the paper, revealing the couple will go to New York this weekend for a third try. "Céline and I didn't get discouraged ... we put our faith in life and in the stars."
