Celine Dion can't see herself dating anytime soon

The singer still feels emotionally connected to her late love.

Celine Dion has no idea if she will ever find love again following the death of her husband Rene Angelil, because she can't imagine herself with another man.

The Power of Love hitmaker marked the first anniversary of her manager husband's passing in January (17), and admits she's nowhere near ready to start looking for love again.

"I think I will probably grieve for the rest of my life," she told The Sun.

Celine grew close to Rene after he took charge of her career as a child, and despite their 26-year age difference, they fell in love and wed in 1994.

"Rene has prepared me for all my life since I'm 12," she said of her close bond with the music mogul. "I have never met another man in my life (romantically), never kissed another man in my life.

"I miss him a lot. For my partner, for the man I was embracing, kissing, making love with. My worries, my dreams... (all revolved around him)."

Celine admits it's because of the lifelong relationship she shared with Rene, who died from cancer at the age of 73, that she struggles to even think about dating again.

"Now it is definitely too soon for me," the 49-year-old insisted. "I am definitely in love with him, married to him.

"He's the love of my life," she continued. "It's very difficult for me to see myself with another person. The love that I have for him, I live it every day."

Celine is now a single mother to their sons Rene-Charles,16, and six-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, and she has taken to sleeping with her youngest by her side.

"I organise myself to not feel lonely," the superstar shared. "So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them. I need them close."
