Celine Dion shares her husband’s heartbreaking last request

This is truly heart-breaking. Celine Dion has said in an interview that her husband's dying wish is to die in her arms. 

Celine's 73-year-old husband René Angélil is currently battling throat cancer and his last wish is to be in his wife's arms when he dies. 

Speaking about their conversation Celine said: "And René says to me, "I want to die in your arms." OK, fine, I'll be there, you'll die in my arms."

Although he is extremely sick, Celine is returning to Las Vegas for her residency at the end of August. 

The couple have been married since 1994 and have three children together, Nelson, Eddy and René-Charles.

She added to USA Today: 'Don't forget, he's been the leader of the band all my life. So it [hacks] him off to not see me all day and over here working. But he wants me to do this, do the show, do the interviews. But he freaks when I'm not home with him, too …'

'I didn't want to be here at first, I don't need it. Don't get me wrong, I love singing for people, but I have priorities. But René really gave me a gift.'

She explained: 'All my grieving, it was during this last year. I think I've got this. For now.'

'When it hits me, it's going to hit me. But my biggest job is to tell my husband, we're fine. I'll take care of our kids. You'll watch us from another spot.'
