Angélil told the Journal de Montreal that Dion's in vitro fertilization this past summer was unsuccessful; at first  the couple did believe it took.

The singer, who is the youngest of 14 children, has talked passionately about wanting to have more children.

As previously reported, Dion, 41, announced in August that she was expecting a baby due in May.

The My Heart Will Go On singer and Angélil, 67, have an 8-year-old son, Rene-Charles, who was conceived by in vitro fertilization after six years of trying. While trying to conceive her first child, she had her embryos frozen in liquid nitrogen. When she finished her concert run in Las Vegas in 2007, she consulted a New York fertility doctor about trying to conceive again.

Angélil explained the misunderstanding: "Dr. Zev Rosenwaks believed that the procedure/pregnancy took, but that wasn't the case," he said. "We found out some days later. We were shocked. But you know Céline. She doesn't let go."

Angélil, whose battle with cancer had raised doubts that the couple could conceive again, has three other children from two previous marriages.
