Shania Twain's rep announced Monday that the country star is heading down the aisle with Frederic Thiebaud -- and the singer is speaking out today about finding love and strength.
"The people who make my life the most joyful are the ones I am able to lean on because of my own humanness. In the last two and a half years of adjusting to life after separation and divorce, I needed to lean on others more often than I was accustomed to," Twain wrote on her official website.
"Now another year is about to pass, and I would like to thank everyone who helped me believe that new beginnings are possible and that love can be trusted," she added. "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!"
Thiebaud's ex-wife, Marie-Anne, former BFF to Twain, and Shania's husband of 14 years, Robert "Mutt" Lange had an affair -- which destroyed both marriages.
In the wake of the shocking betrayal, Shania and Frederic reached out to one another for support -- and ended up falling in love.
