Celine Dion is still struggling to cope with the loss of her late husband Rene Angelil, who died from throat cancer at the age of 73 last year.
‘I think I will probably grieve for the rest of my life,’ she said to The Sun’s Dan Wootton.
‘Rene has prepared me for all my life since I’m 12. I have never met another man in my life, never kissed another man in my life.
‘I miss him a lot. I miss him a lot - for my partner, for the man I was embracing, kissing, making love with. My worries, my dreams…’
Celine was married to Rene for 21 years. They share three children together, Rene-Charles, 16, and six-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson.
The 49-year-old says taking time out from her career to care for him was a move she did without hesitation.
‘He did suffer for three years. A lot,’ she explains.
‘I took a year off and I said, ‘My living well is to be with you, it’s not my career. You are my career, you are my life’.
‘That’s what a wife does, that’s what a mother does, that’s what a performer does. I took care of him the best way I could.’
The ‘My Heart Will Go On Singer’ says it’s ‘too soon’ for her to even consider moving on from Rene as she’s still ‘in love with him’.
‘He’s the love of my life. It’s very difficult for me to see myself with another person. The love that I have for him, I live it every day. And as a woman, we do have emotions and feelings that come and go. And it’s always with him,’ she reveals.
‘When I sing, it’s with him. When I hug my kids, it’s for him and it’s with him. I took time to grieve and I’m still grieving.’
