Shania Twain is engaged

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).”

      1. If a friend breaks-up a marriage, the marriage was doomed from the start.
      2. If a friend breaks-up a marriage, then that person isn't a friend.
      3. All is fari in love and war, marriage is a battle, you want an allied union? Go to Iraq.

    The four were friends, according to reports. Famous and wealthy people have fewer friends than the peons. They all liked each other. He's not a random guy, She trusts him. Unfortunately she trusted his wife and her husband too.

    "From this moment, life has begun, from this moment, you are the one...". From the moment her husband cheated on her with her fiance's then wife, she knew he was the one. They would both feel the pain of betrayal. They would both feel the pain of an heartbreak. They would both cry on each other's shoulders. Now she can finally sing: "my dream came true because of you...from this moment, as long as i live, from this moment........(keep on singing). One's trash is another one's treasure. You can say that again.

    Why would anyone be down on this engagement. Shania ought to be trusted to know a decent man is good for her. They have taken the time to become friends. Isn't that the best way to enter into a committed marriage?

    I'm so happy for Shania who really deserves happiness. Shania had a lot of responsibilities thrown at her at a very young age and I truly admire her for working to keep her siblings together. Although she was a struggling artist, Mutt helped her to get where she is today and I thank him for that. But she did not deserve the raw deal that he gave her by having the affair with their friend. Both spouses were hurt and they reached out to each other for support and fell in love. I have heard of this happening to couples and it does work. Everybody...just wish them both of happiness and lots of this not what we are supposed to do as a civilized society and not critize, put down and make fun of this couple. Plus, there is not a thing wrong in trying to WRITE RIGHT since we do speak and write the ENGLISH LANGUAGE...right English teacher!

Who cares if he is the ex of her best friend who had an affair with "Mutt". He was there for her and she for him and it developed into them both falling in love with each other.

      If you think about it, Mutt walked away with a much younger woman as well. I would have thought Shania would at least dated alittle more. Something about falling for and marrying 'a love' versus 'the love' of her life and dreams. What is the likelihood that out of 3.3 billion men in the world she would pick the first two that come her way and marry them? Oh well I'll just stand at the back of the line and wait for my dance somewhere about the year 2935. Have you seen their pictures they look DULL like they have been married for 10 years already. Forced smiles, no holding hands, no arms around each other.............and they just got engaged. Have Mercy...........

    "Thiebaud is the ex-husband of the woman that Twain’s husband of 14 years, Robert "Mutt" Lange, allegedly left her for in 2008." Ohh what a tangled web we weave.

    When Shania was with her ex (Mutt Lang) who s a phenomenal producer, she cranked out hit album after hit album. Now no Mutt, no great albums. Maybe she should have kept him as her producer while getting rid of him as husband.
