World famous Canadian singer Celine Dion and his husband Rene Angelil have a double dose of joy today, as they are now the parents of twins – twin boys, to be more accurate. The two babies -who have not been named yet – have been delivered through C-section on Saturday morning in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Dion’s new sons were born at 5 lbs., 10 oz., and 5 lbs., 4 oz., and are premature but healthy. They will reportedly spend a few days in neonatal intensive care, a common procedure for newborn twins, who often arrive before their due date.

Dr. Ronald Ackerman (whose son, Dr. Joshua Ackerman also assisted in the delivery) explained that the surgery to deliver the babies went as expected — with the first boy born at 11:11 a.m. and the second born at 11:12 a.m. — and said that both twins were born with a “good amount” of hair.

Celine and his husband have been really happy to announce the pregnancy back in may – it is the result of six attempts of in-vitro fertilization. The struggle to conceive has finally proven to be fruitful.
