London: Singer Celine Dion has revealed she was initially expecting triplets, but lost one of the babies at the beginning of her pregnancy.

The singer and her husband Rene Angelil welcomed twin boys, Nelson and Eddy, at a hospital in Florida Oct 23 after months of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatments.

The 42-year-old star revealed that she was initially pregnant with three babies, reports a website.

But just five days after doctors told her the happy news, the third baby`s heart stopped beating.

"He chose to let go to give space to his brothers to grow," she said.
