Though Celine knew Rene was the man for her, her mother didn’t agree. “It was very difficult for her,” Dion expressed.
“When I told her I had some really strong feelings for Rene she tried everything to kill him and make me snap out of it… I was very frustrated and mad at first, but she tried to make me understand that this man tried marriage twice before – he has three children, he’s not responsible, ‘I want the perfect Prince Charming for you’.”
