"Normally, after my show when he had taken his last medications, I gave him a kiss, tucked him in and sent him off to sleep," she continued. "That evening I didn't want to wake him. It was the nurse who found him the next day. Distraught, she came to find me. I went into the room."

Céline — who admitted she was at peace with René's passing because her beloved husband was no longer suffering — recently opened up about staying positive for her kids, son René-Charles, 15, and twins Eddy and Nelson, both 5, following their unfortunate loss. "I really, really want to prove to my kids their mother is strong," she said.

"René always insisted the show must go on. You know what, I'm 48-years-old and I lost the love of my life. I miss him a lot from when he was great but not when he was suffering. I cannot be selfish. You have to let people go. I feel at peace," Céline added.
