Thanks to the magazine, Celine fans could know the real news about her, because in mid October 2010, and according to the journalist Jose Lambiet, from the site www.page2live.com, Celine was expected at the St. Mary clinic on October 22, 2010 to bring her babies to the world though a cesarea. But later, on October 14, 2010, contrary to reports, Celine has not scheduled a C-section to deliver her twin boys on October 22, 2010 and has not made outrageous demands of a Florida hospital, Rene Angelil told to the famous magazine "People". "There´s nothing scheduled. We do not have a date", said Rene. "They want Celine´s pregnancy to go as long as possible, at least until the first week of November 2010", added Celine´s rep, referring to the singer´s doctors. "She would never intentionally endanger her unborn children by scheduling a birth early like this", said Rene. Rene also refuted a report that Celine has made diva demands, such as handpicking her nursing staff and reserving a room for a security team. "It´s all false", says the rep. On October 17, 2010, Celine entered the St. Mary clinic at West Palm Beach in Florida, USA to make sure that the twins come to the world the healthiest way possible. The hospital also confirmed that the rumours of the babies coming to the world on October 22, 2010 were completely false. Anyway, the twins born on October 23, 2010. Although the magazine didn´t published all the photos taken on October 13, 2010. They also published a photo of Celine with Julie Snyder, and few photos from Rene Charles. More photos from that session would be published later by the magazine "Hello Canada".
