Canadian singer Celine Dion, 41, is pregnant with her second child, her spokeswoman told AFP Tuesday. Dion and her husband Rene Angelil, director of the French-language reality-television show "Star Academie," are "both very happy," the spokeswoman added.
According to the French-language daily Le Journal de Montreal, which was first to report the story, the singer resorted to medical help to conceive.
Dion, who is from Quebec, is expected to give birth in May 2010.
In March, Dion announced an 18-month career hiatus in order to spend time with her family and have a second child.
Married almost 15 years, Dion currently has one son, Rene-Charles, born on January 25, 2001. He is to start his first day of school on Tuesday in Florida, Dion's spokeswoman said.
