Shania Twain has kicked off the New Year with a bang – she got married!
Just weeks after confirming her engagement to business executive Frederic Thiebaud, Shania and her new man tied the knot in Puerto Rico on Saturday, a rep for the singer has confirmed to Access Hollywood.
“They were married at sunset in Rincon, Puerto Rico, in front of 40 of their closest family and friends,” the rep told People, which was first to report the news.
Following her divorce from Robert “Mutt” Lange in May 2008, the country superstar confirmed that she was dating Frederic in August 2009.
Lange allegedly had an affair with Shania’s good friend and Frederic’s wife, Marie-Anne Thiebaud. Both Lange and Marie-Ann denied that their own relationship was the reason the two couples split.
In the wake of her husband’s alleged tryst, Shania became close with Frederic.
“I’m in love!” the Canadian beauty blogged following her recent engagement news. “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.”
In other Shania news, as previously reported, she is also launching her own series — titled “Why Not?” — on the Oprah Winfrey Network, which debuted on New Year’s Day.
