French-Canadian singer Celine Dion claims her father never wanted to have children - even though he managed to conceive 14.

The GRAMMY-winning superstar insists her dad would have been happy without offspring, but believes her mother managed to convince him to have a large family.

Dion says, "I have 13 brothers and sisters. I'm the 14th. I'm the accident of the family, that's what they call me.

"Do you believe that my dad didn't wanna have children? I guess my mother was wearing the pants, I don't know."
