Celine Dion Says Husband "Doing Well" in Cancer Recovery

Alix Malka © Feeling Productions Inc.Celine Dion told reporters at a recent fundraiser that her husband, René Angelil, is "doing really well" with his recovery from cancer.

The singer was in Montreal to perform with the winners of the Sing for Ste-Justine with Celine Dion contest, which was held to raise money for Montreal's Ste-Justine's children's hospital, according to The Canadian Press

When asked about 72-year-old Angelil, who had a cancerous tumor removed in December, Celine said he's "working really hard on his health and he's being a dad at the house, which I'm really happy about."

Celine, 46, was discovered and managed by Angelil, and married him in 1994.  They share three children.  In December, Angelil relinquished day-to-day management of Dion's career, though still has a significant role in major decisions.

"Life imposes some things on you but he's doing really well," Celine said. "He's working hard, he's really being disciplined, which is not an easy thing for him. So he's very disciplined, he's working hard, he's playing with the kids, he's having a good time."
