Shania Twain Gushes Over Love With Ex-Best Friend's Ex-Husband

Yesterday, it was reported that Shania Twain is engaged to Nestle executive Frederic Thiebaud -- the ex-husband of the ex-best friend that her ex-husband left her for. Whew. Got that?

Today, Twain confirms it on her own website, thanking friends, family and fans for helping her get through the rough divorce, and gushing over her newfound engagement.


I've spent much time over the course of this past year, learning about others who have suffered loss in their lives and taken inspiration from how they've managed to overcome it. I'm learning that grief and the suffering of loss, challenges me to be more sensitive and understanding of other's and also more accepting of my own struggles.

I believe in the right to be loved and the blessing of being able to love in return. 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. Fred and I are happy to announce, our ENGAGEMENT!
