Shania Twain gets engaged

Monday, December 20, 2010 – Shania Twain is engaged after splitting from her producer/husband in 2008. The singer is engaged to Frédéric Thiébaud of Switzerland.

"They've been engaged a couple months," People said on its web site Monday, quoting a source. Thiébaud, 40, gave Twain, 45, a three-carat solitaire diamond ring.

Twain and Robert "Mutt" Lange were married for 14 years, but he left her for another woman, allegedly Thiébaud's then-wife, Marie-Anne. She worked at Twain and Lange's chateau in Switzerland.

Twain later took up with Thiébaud and have been seen vacationing together in New York and Florida.

In August 2009, Twain said to People that Thiébaud was "a dear friend and true gentleman" and had "been the most constant companion and support for both (her son) Eja and I. And having gone through the suffering of his family splitting apart at the same time and under the same extreme circumstances, he understands me better than anyone."

After the massive success of "The Woman In Me," Shania Twain has strayed very far from country in what is essentially a pop album.
