Shania Twain and Frédéric Thiébaud have been married since 2011. The couple have quite an unusual romantic tale.
Twain was first married to Robert John "Mutt" Lange, a record producer, as reported by Wide Open Country. They tied the knot in 1993 and had a son, Eja, in 2001.
However, Twain and Lange called it quits after the latter allegedly had a relationship with Marie-Anne Thiébaud, the singer's best friend.

It was Marie-Anne's husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, who first informed Twain about the terrible news. Twain and Thiébaud later bonded over their mutual pain, which later transformed into affection.
The pair became engaged in December 2010. And in January 2011, they exchanged their wedding vows in Rincón, Puerto Rico. As reported by Closer Weekly, Twain said in an interview:
"It's twisted, but so beautifully twisted."

DESCRIBING WHAT HAPPENED
In another interview, she said, "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."
The Grammy award winner added that luckily, she and Thiébaud figured out how to take hold of one another "on the way down in midair and break each other's fall."
Twain admitted that occasionally she gets overpowered adapting to things.

As for Marie-Anne, the "You're Still the One" singer said that she thinks there are just some people in life we would say we wish we had not met them or would have been better off not knowing them.
As reported by CNN, Twain admitted that occasionally she gets overpowered adapting to things. In any case, she pointed out that experience also teaches people how to manage it.

The singer, who has sold more than 100 million records, added that people have so much experience at falling and getting up when they get older. Twain went on to say that she believes people will eventually improve at getting up and brushing themselves off.
Meanwhile, Twain recently gave her fans uplifting statements in the midst of the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic. She said they will get past this circumstance soon.
Twain is not just blessed with a lovely performing voice; she is also blessed with an attractive physique. The vocalist recently showed off her fit figure on social media to celebrate Women's Day.
