Grieving over the death of her husband, singer Celine Dion said the toughest part of the episode was to explain to her young five-year-old twins about it. She is, however, thankful to have had the movie ‘Up’ to help explain the loss of her husband Rene Angelil to their youngest children.

The couple’s eldest son, Rene-Charles, turned 15 less than two weeks after his father’s death in January but Dion was most concerned about grief counselling for their twins, Eddy and Nelson, reported Contactmusic.

“I asked for some books for children to help me to guide them through this,” the My Heart Will Go On superstar said.

“And (the books) kind of, like, shook me up so much. It was not my way of wanting to talk to my children.”

The 48-year-old singer found an ideal solution in animated hit ‘Up’ by accident, and now wants the world to know what is helping her heart go on.

“’Up’ saved my life,” she smiled, before referencing an elderly character in the 2009 family film.

“I said (to the kids), ‘What is the movie that Ellie died in?’ And they said, ‘Ellie died in the movie Up, Mum.’ I said, ‘That’s it. Ellie,’ I said. ‘Well, I want you to now listen to me.’ I said, ‘Papa is now with Ellie.’”
