Celine Dion puts son first

Celine Dion is glad she is an established artist because she can put her family first rather than having to focus on furthering her career.
Great deals on musical instruments

Celine Dion builds her career around her son.

The 'My Heart Will Go On' hitmaker has just signed up for a residency at the Colosseum in the Caesars Palace hotel in Las Vegas and is grateful she is able to prioritise her family over her work because of her success.

Celine - who is currently undergoing fertility treatment in a bid to have a second child - said: "We are going to be doing 70 shows a year and I'm building my career right now around my son's schedule.

"It's the greatest fun that I've had for years, feeling that I don't have to build a career but just try to do it because I love doing it and that the people that I love the most are with me."

Celine - who has a nine-year-old son Rene-Charles with husband Rene Angelil - promised the show would be different to her last residency in Las Vegas, which ran from 2003 to 2007.

She explained: "It's a totally different show. I'm amazed that every time I think that we have it... we take a moment and then we turn it around."

The Canadian-born star also spoke about why she wasn't involved in the Opening Ceremony at Vancouver's Winter Olympics, admitting she declined to appear because of a potential pregnancy.

She explained to US TV show 'Access Hollywood': "I'm going through some in vitro treatments - so that was my choice. I'm trying to grow my family, be with my son and maybe be a mom for a second child, hopefully. That would be my biggest dream right now."
