Singer Celine Dion is refusing to hire a nanny to help her care for her newborn twins, wanting to raise them herself.
Celine Dion, who gave birth to twin sons Nelson and Eddy in October, says she is exhausted but won’t be hiring any help.
Dion told French magazine Gala, “I didn’t have these children to not take care of them, to give myself to them 200 – 300 per cent. I am changing diapers and breastfeeding and that’s something where no one can take my place. It’s tiring but an intense joy.
“I take things day by day. That’s the secret to me. In any case, breastfeeding is more difficult if you are stressed. Sometimes I find myself in comical situations I don’t know how to get myself out of. For example, when both are feeding and one has gas while the other is burping, I don’t know which position to adopt!”
But Dion does say she is thankful her mother and sister help out with the “housework, cooking or doing the shopping”.
