    Céline Dion and her husband René Angélil have finally named their twin sons! Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Eddy and Nelson. The name "Eddy" comes from Eddy Marnay, who produced the singer's first five records. "He was like a father to her," said Dion's rep. "Eddy is a major influence in both Céline and René's lives." Nelson was named after Nelson Mandela, whom Dion met a few years ago when kicking off her world tour in South Africa. "René said that in just the few minutes they were able to spend with him, they were impressed by the human being he is," said the singer's rep.

    What do you think of the names Dion and her husband chose for their new bundles of joy?
