René-Charles Angélil, Celine Dion’s son, has grown significantly from a baby to a young man.
He resembles his late father and appears older than his actual age, according to online users.
His transformation includes sporting a beard and showing signs of balding.
Celine Dion was married to René Angélil for 21 years before his sad passing in January 2016. A representative announced that the music manager died at his Las Vegas home after a “long and courageous battle against cancer.” He was 73 years old.

Angélil left behind his five-time Grammy Award-winning wife, whom he married in December 1994, including the couple’s three children. Years later, Dion revealed her own health struggles.

In an emotional video shared on Instagram in December 2022, she disclosed her diagnosis of a rare neurological disorder called Stiff Person Syndrome. She announced the cancellation of her European tour due to her condition and expressed deep sadness over the decision.

Despite the loss of her long-time spouse paired with the effects of her illness, Dion has remained strong with the support of their three sons, René-Charles, and youngest twins Nelson and Eddy, 13. René-Charles is her eldest child and was born in January 2001.

He has been in the public eye since infancy, always by his mother’s side. From being photographed as a baby and then as a teenager, to now being a young adult with a beard, here is René-Charles’s dramatic transformation that makes him look older than his age.
