The power of love, and family, for singing superstar Celine Dion is still running strong.

“We’d love to,” Dion said today on “Good Morning America,” of her and her husband-manager Rene Angelil’s desire to add another child to their brood.   ”It’s the biggest gift that you can offer yourself.”

“Is it gonna be possible?  Is it gonna happen,” the 43-year-old singer, who underwent in-vitro fertilization for the pregnancies of both her 10-year-old son, Rene Charles, and 11-month-old twins, Eddie and Nelson, said on “GMA.”  “I don’t know.”

“But do I wish for it,” she asked.  “Oh yes.”

Dion’s wish for more children, and much more, is revealed in a new documentary, “Celine: 3 Boys and a New Show,” airing next month, October 1, on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network.

The 90-minute documentary reveals a very personal side of the very public mother, wife, musical icon and Caesars Palace headliner as she goes through the pregnancy and birth of her twin sons, followed by her return to the Las Vegas stage just five months later.

The documentary is so personal that Dion, whose success in Las Vegas led Newsweek magazine to deem her “the biggest act since Elvis,” has not even seen it.

“I did my life and they captured the special,” she said.  “I went, we were filmed, we did the special.  What’s a special except part of my life?”

Dion told “GMA” that while she lives her busy life and balances it all, she leaves the details up to her husband Angelil, the man who has managed her career since the day they met, when she was 12 and he was 38.

“I give it to Rene for him to decide what’s gonna be good and when and how,” she said, further describing her husband as “somebody who takes all the decisions.”

“I’m very intense in what I do,” she said.  “When I’m with my kids and I’m having this loving family moment, I do not allow anything to disturb that.”

“He’s gotta think ahead,” Dion said, describing Angelil’s role in both her career and their personal life.  “That ‘s why it’s harder for him, I think.  And I appreciate him so much.”

Despite having sold more than 200 million albums, performed at countless concert halls and stadiums around the world, earned hundreds of millions of dollars and garnered enough awards and recognitions to fill a museum, Dion says it’s the family life she reveals in the OWN documentary that she treasures above all else.

“Now I’m in my 40s and I think I’m blessed with my family and husband,” Dion said.  “I’m very privileged to have them.  It’s what I’m the most proud of, my family, my kids.”

As to whether the future will hold even more family for the singer to be proud of?

“I think the best is yet to come,” Dion hinted again.
