Celine Dion’s kids are ‘scared’ she’ll die from health issues 8 years after losing dad René Angélil

Celine Dion candidly shared that her children are worried she will die from her battle with stiff person syndrome.

“I don’t have my mom. I don’t have my dad,” the “My Heart Will Go On” singer, 56, said in a preview of her upcoming interview on Australia’s “Sunrise” morning show released Thursday.

“My kids are scared because they lost their dad,” she continued, referencing her late husband, René Angélil. “They’re wondering if I’m going to die.”

Dion announced in December 2022 that she had been diagnosed with the rare neurological disorder, which “causes progressive muscle stiffness (rigidity) and repeated episodes of painful muscle spasms,” according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders.

The Grammy winner has said she first experienced symptoms in 2008, but they worsened by 2021 when she had to postpone her Las Vegas residency due to “severe” spams. She later tearfully canceled her “Courage” world tour.

Dion and Angélil welcomed three sons together: René-Charles, 23, and twins Nelson and Eddy, 13.

The couple were married from 1994 until the music producer’s death from throat cancer in 2016 at the age of 73.

The Canadian chanteuse, who made a surprise appearance at the Grammys earlier this year, is the subject of an upcoming Amazon Prime Video documentary titled “I Am: Celine Dion.”

While promoting the film during a recent interview with Hoda Kotb, Dion explained how difficult it is to sing with stiff person syndrome.

“It’s like somebody is strangling you,” she said in NBC News’ “Celine’s Story” special, which aired Tuesday. “It’s like somebody is pushing your larynx/pharynx this way.”

The powerhouse vocalist added that the disorder not only affects her throat but also different parts of her body, which end up “cramping” because she is unable to “unlock” them.

“I had broken ribs at one point because sometimes when it’s very severe, it can break [the bone],” she shared.
