Celine Dion is the most recent star to appear in James Corden's Carpool Karaoke, and it's fair to say she has a song for every occasion.

Her ride with James featured her classics 'Because You Loved Me', 'My heart Will Go On', and even a dramatic rendition of 'Baby Shark'.

James asked her about the drawbacks that come with her level of fame.

After saying she doesn't like thinking about it, she shared that when she gave birth to her first son, René-Charles Dion Angélil, in 2001, the doctor made the announcement on live TV before she'd even had a chance to hold her baby.

"I'm delivering my first child, I don't even have him in my arms yet and I look to my left and there's a TV there and the doctor is announcing, live on television 'a beautiful healthy boy, 7lb 8z' and I'm saying, 'My baby is on television and I didn't even hold him yet.' So I turned off the TV."

James joked that Celine's story helped put his wife's anger into perspective, when he live-streamed her in labour on Instagram.

We think that this doctor took things too far.
