Celine Dion tired out by newborns

Celine Dion says she's finding looking after babies really tiring

Celine Dion has revealed she is knackered by her newborn twins, but finds them "an intense joy".

The superstar, who welcomed twin sons Nelson and Eddy on October 23, told French magazine Gala: "I am changing nappies and breastfeeding and that's something where no one can take my place - it's tiring but an intense joy.

"I didn't have these children to not take care of them, [but] to give myself to them 200 - 300 per cent," she added.

Celine - who is also mum to nine-year-old son Rene-Charles - has not had much time for herself.

"In reality, I've had almost no time getting a shower and feeding myself. My preoccupation has been eating sensibly," she admitted.

"My only worry has been to be able to open and close [my tops] quickly for breastfeeding. It's been out of the question to even wear a blouse!"

Since giving birth, the 42-year-old lost her appetite and suffered from mood changes.

"Some of the first days after I came home, I was a little outside myself. I had no appetite and that bothered me. My mother remarked that she noticed I had moments of lifelessness, but reassured me that this was entirely normal," she recalled.

"One moment, tremendous happiness; the next, fatigue sets in, and I cried for no reason, and then that took care of itself. It's for things like that after having a baby that mothers really need emotional support."
