“I don’t date,” the multi-award winner said matter of factly during her appearance on US TV show TODAY to promote her latest album, Courage.

“I’m not ready to date. I’m very lucky to have so many people in my surrounding to make me laugh, but I miss to be touched. I miss to be hugged. I miss to be told, ‘You’re beautiful.’ I miss what a boyfriend and I miss what a husband would do,” she added.

Céline went on to explain how she’s coping personally and professionally after René, who she married in 1994.

“This is my first English album without René,” the mother-of-three said.

“When I say without Rene I mean without René physically, because René will always be a part of me. Courage was representing the whole losing my husband, losing my manager, my kids losing their father, and finding the strength to keep going - because I wanted to” she explained.
