Céline Dion late husband and manager died in 2016 following a protracted battle with throat cancer.

Four years after his passing, Céline has honoured him on her Instagram in a touching tribute.

The heartwarming shot features Angélil smiling as he holds a sleeping puppy in his arms.

“There is not a day that goes by without me thinking about your beautiful smile,” Dion wrote in both French and English in the caption of the picture.

“We miss you, thank you for watching over us my love. I love you,” she added, signing off the post, “Céline xx…”

Céline and René were married for 22 years before he succumbed to his battle with throat cancer at the age of 74 in January 2016.

They knew one another for much longer, Angélil managing her career since 1980, when she was 12.

That closeness leaves Dion - who has three sons with Angélil: René-Charles, 18, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 9 - still thinking about her late husband every day.
