‘He can’t eat so I feed him,’ Dion told ABC News.

‘He’s got a feeding tube. I have to feed him three times a day.’

Celine’s husband Rene Angelil, who is 73, was pictured looking frail during the interview in Las Vegas.

The couple have been married since 1994, after meeting 14 years previously.

They have three sons together, 14-year-old Rene Charles, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 4.

Celine broke down as she explained how hard life has become since Angelil’s diagnosis, telling ABC reporter Deborah Roberts that they’re taking ‘one day at a time.’

Dion was forced to leave her popular Las Vegas residency last year due to her husband’s ill health, saying she needed to ‘devote every ounce of my strength and energy to my husband’s healing.’
