Celine Dion refusing to hire a nanny for twins

London: Celine Dion has said that she does not want to hire a nanny to help take care of her twins.

The singer, who has a nine-year-old son Rene-Charles, gave birth to Eddy and Nelson last October after a long battle with fertility treatments.

“I didn’t have these children to not take care of them, to give myself to them 200 - 300 per cent,” The Daily Star quoted Dion as telling French Magazine Gala.

The singer, however, admitted that looking after the babies can be exhausting.

“I am changing diapers and breastfeeding and that’s something where no one can take my place. It’s tiring but an intense joy,” she said.

She added, “I take things day by day. That’s the secret to me. In any case, breastfeeding is more difficult if you are stressed. Sometimes I find myself in comical situations I don’t know how to get myself out of. For example, when both are feeding and one has gas while the other is burping, I don’t know which position to adopt!”
