French-Canadian singer recently revealed that she has a pre-show ritual that involves a bronze replica of her late partner's hand.

Celine opened up about this unique custom to the Australian magazine Stellar, saying, "I shake my husband's hand and knock on wood with him every night before every show. Even after he's gone." She continued, "I still talk to him. I'm trying to prove to him every day I'm fine. Our kids are growing, we feel strong. We're good." René even has a special seat at every one of her concerts, she explained, telling the magazine that he used to sit at the back of the sound stage.

The Canadian chanteuse, who turns 50 on 30 March, has three children with René – René-Charles, 17, and seven-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy. And while the family has lived through a tremendous loss, they still find the strength to enjoy their lives and embrace every curveball. The mother of three recently celebrated her eldest son's 17th birthday on 25 January, commemorating the special day with a heartwarming post that said: "I love you more and more each day, and I'm so proud of the young man that you've become."
