Country singer Shania Twain has reportedly been engaged to Swiss executive Frédéric Thiébaud for a couple of months.
Twain split from her husband of 14 years, Grammy-winning producer Robert “Mutt” Lange, back in 2008 after he allegedly had an affair with Twain’s friend Marie-Anne Thiébaud (who was also married at the time). Twain and Marie-Anne’s ex-husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, consoled each other after they were both left by their spouses. The consoling friendship obviously turned into much more over time, since Thiébaud recently proposed to Twain with a three-carat solitaire diamond ring.
Friends and family of the couple say they are very happy about the news.
“Her happiness certainly shone through,” Stéphane Lagonico, a friend of Twain, said. “They are a great addition to each other’s lives.”
Another friend added, “Shania and Fred are a couple that fit together.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
