Céline Dion is one proud mum!

Taking to Instagram, the Canadian singer made hearts melt when she shared a touching tribute to her eldest son, René-Charles, in honour of his 21st birthday.

Alongside a rare photo of her cradling her son just minutes after he was born, while her late husband René Angélil leans in to coo over their newborn - the 'My Heart Will Go On' hitmaker wrote: "René-Charles, 21 years of dreams have already passed.

"We gave you life… Thank you very much for giving us the wonderful gift of becoming your parents. Since that day, I’ve been thriving as I watch you grow. Your intelligence, your generosity, your courage, and your great sensitivity never cease to move me."

She continued: "We guided you from our dreams, by holding your hand. Keep exploring and above all, listen to your heart knowing that you are always carried by our love, so that now your own dreams can come true.

"Happy Birthday René-Charles! Have fun my darling… We adore you! T.V.E.C. - Dad, Mom, Nelson and Eddy xx."

Céline first met Angélil in 1980 when she was 12 and he was 38. They eventually got married in December 1994.
