Celine Dion was only twelve years old when she met the man who would be her husband. Dion’s mother sent René Angélil, a music manager, a copy of a demo tape. The tape moved Angelil to tears, and he signed Dion immediately.
They began a romantic relationship seven years later, when Dion was 19, and were married late in 1994. The couple have three sons together, conceived after years of struggling with infertility. Rene-Charles, their first, and Eddy and Nelson, twins.
After a long battle with throat cancer, Angélil passed away in January at age 73. Dion’s team of publicists released a statement on her Facebook page, stating he’d passed in their Las Vegas.
After the news was released, people rushed to offer Dion their condolences for her loss. One of these was Reba McEntire. She shared a photo of the couple to her Instagram, expressing her sadness over René’s passing. “My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to Celine and her family on the passing of René,” she captioned the photo. “He fought a long hard battle.”
