Céline Dion in grieving the death of her late husband René Angélil, can’t help but find comfort in keeping her 6-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson Angélil close and helping them remember their late father.

The 49-year-old who spoke to The Sun, revealed the three sleep together every night.

“I organize myself to not feel lonely,” Dion said. “So I got myself a huge, huge, huge bed and I sleep with my twins. They are comforting me a lot. I need them. I need them close.”

“When it’s time for them to say they want their room, their room’s ready. But we watch a lot of TV together. I’m discovering Disney,” she added.

She explained that her boys have found a way through the pain of losing their father because she’s remained a symbol of strength.

“They’re really well because I’m strong,” she said. “I’m sounding pretentious but if I don’t show them the way, they will question it. ‘Papa is not coming back but Papa is in your heart.”

She also opened up about how she gets her children to communicate with their “Papa.”

“We kiss him every night,” Dion said. “We have a little ritual where we say goodnight to him with a little picture. Then the kids talk to him. And they write words, put them in balloons and we send the balloons to the sky.”

As for Dion’s 16-year-old son René-Charles, Dion said she’s determined to relieve him of pressure to become “chief of the house.”

Angélil, Dion’s husband of 22 years and talent manager for over three decades, died in January 2016 after a battle with cancer.

Dion said she became a sponge in the months before his death, learning everything she could from the man who helped her create an astounding career.

“We talked a lot and I took notes every day,” she said. “I had my Post-its and my crayons and my book, and everything he wanted or questioned, or he thought of, I wrote it down.”
