The 51-year-old singer - who has René-Charles, 18, and eight-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy with late husband René Angelil - has reached a point where she's confident in her own choices and feels she has reached her "pinnacle".

She said: "I am like a one-year-old! I'm not saying that I don't care what people think of me, but I've reached a point in my life where I can let myself make my own decisions and choices....

"Now I am discovering myself more and more. I am a woman assuming her own destiny, full of energy and in love with life. It's never too late to start. At 51, I have the sense that I am at my pinnacle!"

The 'My Heart Will Go On' hitmaker is delighted to have landed a deal as global spokesperson for L'Oréal Paris because she wants other women to feel as "strong" and positive as she does.

She told America's ELLE magazine: "Telling other women that they, too, have self-worth, that they are strong, is obviously really important. You cannot limit yourself. My life started over at 50; I feel happy, I feel beautiful. I thought, 'I must have done something right for this to be happening.' "

Meanwhile, when it comes to her sons, Céline hopes they will grow up to be "good men" who make the right choices and are able to choose a partner because of their own positive qualities.

She said: "I want them to be good kids, good men.

"Later in life, maybe they'll come to me and say, How am I going to find my right woman? Well, who are you? Do you respect yourself? Are you generous? Are you kind? Are you aware?"
