Celine Dion has thanked her fans for their well wishes after her 50th birthday. The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker reached the milestone celebration on Friday and has taken to social media to thank her devoted fans for all their kind messages.

She wrote: "I want to thank all of you for the wonderful birthday messages and videos. They touched me deeply. I celebrated this day surrounded by family, while feeling the spirit of your presence. Thank you for your love and support and for being such a big part of my life for all these years. I can't wait to get back to being 100 per cent, and to see you all again!"

Celine was forced to have a low-key birthday bash this year after an ear condition known as Patulous Eustachian tube - which causes hearing irregularities and makes it extremely difficult to sing - left her needing surgery. The star cancelled three weeks of performances, from March 27 to April 18, to correct the condition, and instead of taking to the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, she spent her birthday with her sons, 17-year-old Rene-Charles Angelil, and seven-year-old twins, Nelson and Eddy.

Celine has reportedly been suffering with her condition for over a year and was on medication to ease the symptoms, but sources claim her ear drops are no longer working.
