Céline Dion's dream to expand her family has come true.
The singer, 42, is pregnant with twins after undergoing her sixth in-vitro fertilization attempt and turning to acupuncture to improve her chances of a pregnancy, her rep Kim Jakwerth confirms.
Dion, mom to 9-year-old son René-Charles, is 14 weeks along. She will find out the gender of the twins next month.
"We're ecstatic," her husband/manager René Angelil tells PEOPLE. "Celine is just hoping for a healthy pregnancy. She was hoping for one baby and the news that we are having two is a double blessing."

So yeah, Lee DeWyze took the "American Idol" title last week. But really, the question on everyone's mind is: who is going to take over the title of most obnoxious judge?
Here are 10 suggestions:
1. I think Madonna may have the perfect combo of performer cred and hardcore honesty to get the job done. Her fake British accent wouldn't hurt either.
2. Neil Patrick Harris has proven himself to be a kick-butt actor, singer, and live TV host. Done and done.
3. Nick Lachey has survived boy band cult status, marriage to Jessica Simpson, and a reality TV show.
Don't forget to tune in TONIGHT at 9pmet – we're kicking off our LKL 25th ANNIVERSARY week with Lee, Crystal and the 8 finalists!!

The blame game in Washington has started, with President Obama holding a press conference on Thursday to address his administration's handling of the crisis. Meanwhile, Secretaries Hillary Clinton and Timothy Geithner headed overseas to discuss the ongoing situation on the Korean peninsula.
With all of this going on, you may have missed some of these stories worth checking out:
1. As mentioned above, Secretary of State Clinton was in Asia. During her travels, she granted an interview with China's Central Television, and dished about the 'most important' thing going on in her life. Check out what that is HERE (Politico)
2. Looks like the Salahis crashed another place... this time in NYC. At least they got a good laugh out of it (NY Daily News)
3. 'Bunny Suits now a no-no for child sex molesters' in Florida... and no dressing up like Santa Claus either. (Palm Beach Post)
4. Apparently former President Clinton and his "brother from another mother" have frequent late-night chats. Check out who it is HERE (RollCall)
5. Meet "Little Obama" – *spoiler alert* – 'Barry' grows up to be the President of the United States.
