There's no place like home – especially Céline Dion's.
Just ask the guy who was caught after allegedly breaking in.
In fact, Daniel Bedard, 36, was about to step into the bathtub of the Montreal-area residence on Monday when law officers, tipped off by the alarm system, showed up at the house with a canine unit, police tell the Associated Press.
Already, they say, the bather had helped himself to some sweets from the singer's kitchen.

Before they were Eddy and Nelson, Céline Dion had a special way of referring to her newborn twin boys: Baby A and Baby B.
The singer, 42, says she didn't name her sons, now 4 months old, at the hospital, instead waiting about a week – to husband René Angélil's frustration.
"René said, 'Listen, people are starting to call me. What's their names?' " Dion tells Oprah Winfrey in an interview scheduled to air on Monday's The Oprah Winfrey Show. "'I can't tell them A and B again – that's not working.' "

Céline Dion and her hubby René Angélil are overjoyed about the birth of their twin boys, Eddy and Nelson, but before they were born, there was also some heartbreak.
"For about a week, we thought we had triplets, but sadly on the next visit to the doctor's, we only heard two heartbeats," Dion, 42, tells Hello! magazine in its current issue.
"That little baby decided to leave the space for the two others and to say goodbye to us," she says. "It happened very early during the pregnancy, but still, it shocks you."

Meet Eddy and Nelson!
It took several days, but Céline Dion and her husband René Angélil have finally named their twin sons.
The name "Eddy" comes from Eddy Marnay, who produced the singer's first five records. "He was like a father to her," says Dion's rep. "Eddy is a major influence in both Céline and René's lives."
Nelson is named after Nelson Mandela, whom Dion met two years ago while kicking off her world tour in South Africa. "René said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with him, they were impressed by the human being he is," says the rep.
