Celine Dion broke down in tears as she opened up about her husband and manager René Angélil’s battle with throat cancer.
The singer is set to return to her Las Vegas residency in August with a new act, having taken a year off to help care for René during his second battle with cancer.
The brave couple, who have three sons together, are facing the battle head on and working through each day as it comes.
An understandably emotional Celine, 46, explained to ABC News reporter Deborah Reports that because René’s treatment means he cannot eat probably, she feeds him through a tube.
She said: “He can’t eat so I feed him.
“He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day.”
She added that the family are bravely “taking life one day at a time. [But] we are choosing to live.”
Celine and René, 73, married back in 1994 after knowing each other for 14 years and have three sons: René Charles, 14, and fraternal twins Eddy and Nelson, 4.
Celine helped René through his first battle with throat cancer in 1999.
She’s been on an indefinite break from her resident at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, since last summer.
At the time (August 13, 2014), she said in a statement to her fans: “I want to devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing, and to do so, it’s important for me to dedicate this time to him and to our children.
“I also want to apologize to all my fans everywhere, for inconveniencing them, and I thank them so much for their love and support.”
Speaking in this latest interview about her decision to return, she explained: “The fans, they know that I’m an open book.
“I sing…that’s the only thing I know.”
The interview will air Wednesday on Good Morning America at 7 a.m. ET and Nightline at 12:35 a.m. ET.
