‘Who is Shania Twain married to?’ is a common question and the quick answer is— Shania Twain’s husband is Frédéric Thiébaud!
Shania Twain and her husband of nine years have a rather unusual love story. You see, the pair got together after divorcing their respective spouses, Robert “Mutt” Lange and Marie-Anne Thiébaud, who had carried on an affair together. What made matters even worse and more complicated was the fact Marie-Anne was also Shania’s best friend and personal secretary.
In a recent interview with AARP The Magazine, 54-year-old Shania opened up about how she and Frédéric found love in the middle of so much hurt.
“It’s twisted,” the country star confessed about the start of their romance. “But so beautifully twisted.”
Lange put an end to their 14-year marriage in 2008 and the singer-songwriter soon found out the painful truth behind the split from Frédéric.
“There were days I didn’t really care if tomorrow came,” Twain admitted about learning of the affair and sinking into depression.
Fortunately, Shania and Frédéric were able to lean on each other during this difficult time and eventually a romance blossomed from their friendship.
“Survival is everything,” Shania reflects about this time in her life. “I was in quicksand. I panicked, like everybody does, but I didn’t surrender. I found a way out.”
Swiss-born Frédéric has a daughter named Johanna who is just a year older than Shania’s son Eja, who almost 19-years-old (born August 12, 2001). Thankfully Shania’s second husband is also well outside the realm of the music industry, he’s a Nestlé business executive.
The pair married in an intimate ceremony on January 1, 2011 in Rincón, Puerto Rico, just weeks after they made their engagement public on December 20, 2010.
“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,” Shania herself wrote about their relationship.
Shania Twain’s Husband – Frédéric Thiébaud“I describe what happened to Fred and me this way: we were two people who had been jettisoned from our lives as if we’d been shoved off the edge of a high cliff. Thankfully, we managed to grab onto each other on the way down in midair, and break each other’s fall,” Shania told Parade in a past interview with the publication.
