Celine Dion was an adorable child. The “My Heart Will Go On” hitmaker celebrated her 52nd birthday on Monday, March 30 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, and her team is treating fans with a throwback photo from her childhood.
Taking to her official Instagram account, the “Because You Loved Me” singer’s team posted a photo of the musician from her days in Charlemagne, Quebec. A celebratory message in both France and English that read “Happy Birthday, Celine! Wishing you health, love and happiness!” was also included in the caption of the post.
The picture itself saw the younger Celine rocking a green and red plaid dress with tartan ruffle. Flashing a bright smile to the camera, she sported medium brunette locks with cute jagged cut bangs. Given the sky blue background, the photo was suspected to be taken for a school portrait.
Fans were quick to send their best wishes to the birthday girl. “Happy birthday, Celine! We’ve been celebrating you for hours here in Europe already. have a good one,” one said. Another prayed for her, “Happy Birthday Celine may God continue blessings you now and always!” A third person wrote, “Happy birthday CELINE!!! Been listening to Falling into You and Unison all week, needed to go back to my love for you! Where it all began.”
Celine’s birthday came a little over two weeks after the “I’m Alive” songstress postponed two dates from her Courage World Tour. She was initially set to perform at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. and at the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s PPG Paints Arena in mid-March, was forced to delay the shows after displaying “symptoms of a common cold.”
“The symptoms persisted into Tuesday, and her doctors instructed her to rest for the next 5-7 days,” a statement on her Facebook page read. “After testing her, the doctors concluded that her virus was not related to COVID-19.”
