Celine Dion told a French magazine she will turn her attention to having a second child after her contract with Caesar's Palace ends in 2007.

The 37-year-old Canadian-born singer said she plans to begin in vitro fertilization treatments at a New York clinic after finishing her work at the Las Vegas venue, a gig she started in 2003.

"I'm approaching 40 years old, and I have to tend to that," Dion told the magazine's latest edition, which comes out Monday. "This frozen embryo that is in New York is my child waiting to be brought to life."

Dion and her manager-husband, Rene Angelil, had their first child, Rene-Charles, in 2001 through in vitro fertilization after years of trying.

Dion said she has 350 shows left to perform at Caesar's Palace and has no intention of giving up singing but also has other interests.

"I would love to make a film," said Dion, who was in Paris to promote her latest album. "I want an Oscar!"
