After Shania Twain's public heartbreak in 2008, the country music sensation is finally ready to say "I do" again.
Twain’s rep confirms to CNN that the singer is engaged to Frederic Thiebaud.
According to Us Weekly, Thiebaud is the ex-husband of the woman that Twain’s husband of 14 years, Robert "Mutt" Lange, allegedly left her for in 2008.
Twain wrote about Thiebaud, "a dear friend and true gentleman," on her blog in 2009: “(Thiebaud) has been the most constant companion of support for both Eja and me, and having gone through the suffering of his family splitting apart at the same time under the same extreme circumstances, he understood me better than anyone.”
She added: “We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We've become stronger and closer through it all, as have our children Eja and Johanna (Fred's 8 year old daughter).”
