Celine Dion Makes Waves

The singer has a waterpark in the backyard of her Jupiter Island, Florida home.
Celine Dion knows a thing or two about fun -- or maybe just unbridled excess. On the heels of news that she is pregnant and expecting twins with hubby Rene Angelil later this year, we've got photos of chanteuse Celine Dion's massive Florida maison -- complete with a full-fledged waterpark that is as impressive as some of the most-visited aquatic playgrounds in the country.
The $20 million home overlooks the Atlantic Ocean on swanky Jupiter Island, where neighbors include none other than Tiger Woods. The 9,825-square-foot pad has been home for the couple and their nine-year-old boy since 2005, when she purchased it for $12.5 million.
Talk about fun playdates for son, Rene.
On top of the usual lavish accompaniments to a home sporting this kind of price tag, there is a lazy river (which wraps around one of the two swimming pools) and two water slides. All of it was of Dion's own design, but it didn't go down well with the neighbors, given the fact that the water park requires 500,000 gallons of water. It reportedly uses up much of the island's fresh-water supply.
Also on the 5.7-acre grounds is a tennis court, underground garage and a beach-side cabana. And this is no teeny cabana: Inside is a gym, so that workouts can be accompanied by crashing waves and a gorgeous sunrise.
All of the buildings have an elegant white exterior. Inside, the home has eight bedrooms reconfigured to two massive guest rooms and a 460-square-foot wardrobe (because if you're putting on concerts like Dion you need the space to accessorize?).
I don't think it's possible to be bored here.
