Celine Dion is opening up for the first time about her late husband Rene Angelil, who died of cancer in January.
The music icon says she gave him permission to let go before he passed away.
"You were worrying for my career. You were worrying for the children. You were worrying for everything. It's enough. Do you trust me? Please do. Trust me," she recalls saying in a new interview with ABC News. "The kids are fine. I'm fine. I promise you we're gonna be okay. Please leave in peace. I don't want you to worry."
The "My Heart Will Go On" singer reveals she used the movie "Up" to explain what was happening to her 5-year-old twins, Nelson and Eddy.
"Before I told them that their dad was not there, I talked about when we, everybody, gets sick. Then I said, 'Do you remember the movie 'Up,'" she explains. "It's one of our favorites. 'Oh,' they said, 'Yes, Ellie went up. You know, she, with the balloons.' And I said, 'Well, yeah … You know, today Papa went up.'"
The couple, who got married back in 1994, also shared 15-year-old son, René-Charles.
The singer says she brought her kids outside where they released balloons and what she called "pixie dust" into the air.
"We're gonna say, 'Papa, we love you. Have a good up, and we're gonna spread this, and it's gonna go to him,'" she recalls saying to her children.
