Shania Twain Gets Married on New Year's Day
Five-time Grammy award winner Shania Twain tied the knot with Swiss Nestle executive Frederic Thiebaud on New Year’s day in Puerto Rico.
ShaniaTwain’s rep revealed the news about the wedding to People magazine. According to the singer’s rep,"They were married at sunset in Rincon, Puerto Rico, in front of 40 of their closest family and friends."
The country super star announced her engagement with Thiebaud last month in her website.
In a letter addressed to her fan Twain said, "In the last two and a half years of adjusting to life after separation and divorce, I needed to lean on others more often than I was accustomed to. These people have been gifts, and I am fortunate to have so many of these beautiful people – friends, family and beloved fans, [whose] support I cherish more deeply with each day that passes."
"Talking about love, I am excited to share some personal news with you I'm in love! Frederic Nicolas Thiebaud has been a true gift to me as a compassionate, understanding friend and over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this precious friendship,” she added.
Shania and Frederick developed their affection for each other after their heartbreaking divorce. Shania’s ex-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange had an affair with her best friend and Frederick’s ex-wife Marie Ann Thiebaud.
In 2009, Shania and Frederick admitted being romantically involved with each other after reports that they were seen spending vacations together. The couple had been dating for over a year before they got married.
Shania Twain started her 2011 right and amazingly great with a new husband and new TV show on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), Why Not?
Congratulations to Shania and Frederic!
