Country music star Shania Twain set to marry again

Tuesday December 21, 2010

Shania Twain has found love following the painful breakdown of her marriage in 2008.

It has been confirmed that the 45-year-old singer is engaged to Swiss executive Frederic Thiebaud.

According to People magazine, he popped the question with a three-carat solitaire diamond ring.

Shania and Frederic, 40, (pictured in November) fell for each other after her husband of 14-years, Robert 'Mutt' Lange, left her for another woman in May 2008.

That alleged affair was with Frederic's then wife, and Shania's best friend, Marie-Anne.

In the wake of the separations, the couple reached out to each other and were later spotted holidaying together in Canada, New York and Florida.

Then, in August 2009, Shania – who has a nine-year-old son Eja with Robert – confirmed the new romance.

Writing on her website, she described Frederic as a "dear friend and a true gentleman" adding that he had "been the most constant companion and support for both Eja and I."
