Popular country singer Shania Twain, of “That don’t impress me much” fame, has married her sweetheart of two years, international businessman Frederic Thiebaud. The couple stepped up to the altar on Saturday for a New Year’s Day wedding in Puerto Rico.
Twain broadcast a post-wedding message on her website stating that she and Thiebaud got married in Rincon and around 40 guests made up of close friends and family were in attendance.
The wedding comes just a few weeks after the announcement of their engagement which came last month.
If stories that circulated at the time of her divorce from former husband Robert “Mutt” Lange are true, then Twain’s marriage to Thiebaud becomes something of a wife swap. Twain initially confirmed she was dating Thiebaud back in August 2009, news which came hot on the heels of her divorce. The reasons for her divorce from Robert “Mutt” Lange allegedly had something to do with Lange having an affair with Marie Anne Thiebaud – Twain’s best friend and wife of Frederic Thiebaud.
The Canadian born, 45-year-old singer needed comforting, and in the wake of events between Lange and Marie Thiebaud she reached out to Frederic Thiebaud. She said on her website last year that she had found “a dear friend and true gentleman.”
Twain has been quiet on the music front in the past few years, but she has recently completed an autobiography which is due to hit the shelves this coming spring. On top of that, Twain is also set to host her own TV show which will be aired on Oprah Winfrey’s network channel.
Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud were spotted together around the time of their engagement, at an NHL hockey game between the Nashville Predators and the Los Angeles Kings in Los Angeles.
