LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Celine Dion may be one of the world’s most famous singing divas, but the “My Heart Will Go On” singer told Access Hollywood on Tuesday at the premiere of “Celine: Through The Eyes of the World” in Miami that her schedule now runs second to her son’s.
“We going to be doing 70 shows a year and I’m building my career right now around my son’s schedule,” she said of her upcoming return to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. “It’s the greatest fun that I’ve had for years, feeling that I don’t have to kind of build a career but just try to do it because I love doing it and that the people that I love the most are with me.”
The star, who is trying to conceive again, added that making 9-year-old Rene-Charles her top priority has been “so rewarding.”
As for the show itself, Celine said fans can expect something different.
“[It’s a] totally a different show,” she told Access. “I’m amazed that every time I think that we have it… we take a moment and then we turn around and then we’re going to do it again.”
The Canadian icon also talked about her absence from the Opening Ceremony at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, telling Access that her potential pregnancy was the reason she’d decided to pass on a performance.
“I’m going through some in vitro treatments – so that was my choice,” she said. “I’m trying to [grow] my family, be with my son and maybe be a mom for a second child, hopefully. That would be my biggest dream right now.”
Celine returns to Las Vegas on March 15, 2011. “Celine: Through The Eyes of the World” is in theaters now for a two-week engagement.
