Céline Dion Finally Chooses Baby Names

After several days, 15,000 names, and many baby books, Céline Dion and her husband René Angélil have named their twin boys Eddy and Nelson.

They chose the name “Eddy” after Eddy Marnay, the producer of Dion’s first five albums. Dion’s rep explains, “He was like a father to her. Eddy is a major influence in both Céline and René’s lives.”

Dion, 42, chose the name Nelson after Nelson Mandela. The singer had met Mandela two years ago during her world tour in South Africa. “René said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with him, they were impressed by the human being he is,” Dion’s rep says.

Dion and Angélil hope their twins’ names will give them inspiration. The rep explains, “Céline and René want their children to be inspired by their names, because they were so inspired by these men.”

Dion admitted to a French magazine that she and her husband had been “going a little bit crazy trying to decide” on baby names (read more here).

I guess it’s no longer Bebe Un and Bebe Deux!

    A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
