LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Singer Celine Dion is not pregnant, despite reports to the contrary from earlier this year, her representatives said on Wednesday.

Dion, 41, was reported pregnant in August, after she underwent fertility treatment at a clinic in New York, and her representatives at the time confirmed the news.

But within days, the Quebec-born Dion learned the embryo had not been implanted successfully, her spokeswoman Kim Jakwerth said on Wednesday.

Dion and her husband, Rene Angelil, did not immediately announce that she was not pregnant, but in an article published Wednesday in French-language newspaper Le Journal de Montreal, Angelil confirmed that Dion is not pregnant after all.

"We are trying again to have a second child" with the help of a fertility doctor, Angelil told the newspaper.

Dion and Angelil's first child, 8 year-old Rene-Charles, was also conceived through in vitro fertilization.

Grammy winner Dion had hit songs with "Power of Love," "If You Asked Me To" and "Love Can Move Mountains."
