Celine Dion wants kids to discover who they are for themselves.
The Canadian icon sat down for an interview on HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade” on Wednesday opening up about her new gender-neutral children’s clothing line designed in partnership with NUNUNU.
Dion said her inspiration came from a trip she took to a Disney theme park with her twin sons, and despite expecting them to gravitate to male and superhero characters, they were actually more interested in the princesses.
“And then I’m saying to myself, you know what, it’s okay,” she recalled. “You know why it’s okay? Because they’re talking, they’re finding themselves.”
The singer also opened up about dealing with the death of her husband Rene Angelil in 2016.
“Before he passed away, I died first,” she said. “It was hard to see him die a little bit every day, and sometimes I’d ask myself questions. ‘Well, do you think it would have been easier, an accident and no goodbyes?'”
She continued, “My husband still lives with me. I see him every day through the eyes of my children. So he’s alive.”
Asked if she would be able to open herself up to love again in the future, Dion responded, “I am in love. I am very much in love. I have my husband.”
Dion also talked about her career plans after her Las Vegas residency comes to an end in June, revealing that she is finishing a new English-language album, her first since 2013.
