Oh, baby! It looks like a delivery date may be right around the corner for songbird Celine Dion. So far her heart will go on... and so will her pregnancy -- at least that's what doctors are hoping for. Dion is pregnant with twin boys. Her rep told People that the Canadian crooner is indeed being monitored by her doctors. According to the statement, "Ms. Celine Dion has been admitted to St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., for observation at the recommendation of her doctors. She has been admitted to prevent the early delivery of her babies, which is the standard of care for any patient with twin pregnancy in this clinical setting." Apparently, there is no medical emergency and the singer and husband Rene Angelil are simply taking precautions that everything goes off without a hitch. Although they are parents to 9-year-old René-Charles, their efforts to conceive again have been met with plenty of complications. Dion has undergone six in-vitro procedures and suffered a miscarriage last November. The expected arrival date for the twins is November. The rep added that doctors have admitted Dion to "ensure the patient can be in close contact with their doctors and clinical resources, leading up to their birth." Just last week, Dion's 68-year-old husband denied reports that Dion had been scheduled for a C-section on October 22. He also shot down rumors that Dion had made diva-like demands of the hospital.
