Dion confirms she is pregnant with her second child via invitro fertilization, according to her spokeswoman.The singer, who gave birth to her first son, Rene-Charles in 2001, returned to the same fertility clinic in New York with hopes of becoming pregnant with a second child.

Murielle Blondeau, Dion’s rep, says the Canadian singer and her husband/manager Rene Angelil had dreamed of giving their young son a sibling and are overjoyed at the news. Dion, who is the youngest of 14 children, and Angelil, who has three children from previous marriages, had always planned to have a large family. When Dion experienced difficulty conceiving, she turned to invitro.

No comment has been made on if the May due date will affect the renewal of Dion’s Las Vegas concert contract.
