Thiébaud, 51, is a Switzerland-born business executive. He previously served as Swiss Nestlé's executive. The pair got married on January 1, 2011, in Rincón, Puerto Rico, after divorcing their spouses. Twain and Frédéric's love story didn't begin on the sets of any MV or through a celebrity cupid; instead, the pair owe their happy married life to their unfaithful spouses, who had an affair with each other.
Twain was previously married to Robert John "Mutt" Lange, a record producer and songwriter, and Thiébaud to Marie-Anne Thiébaud, who also happened to be Shania's best friend at the time. Twain and Mutt were married for 14 years and had collaborated on many projects when Frédéric discovered his wife's affair with Shania's husband. Recalling the infidelity, which later gave way to a new start, Twain said, "Its twisted, but so beautifully twisted."

After her divorce from Robert in 2010, Shania turned to Frédéric, who was going through the exact thing, and the rest is history. "We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. He understands me better than anyone," Twain said about her relationship with Thiébaud.
How many kids does Shania Twain have?
The Canadian singer is a doting mother to one, Eja Lange, 20, who she shares with her ex-husband Mutt. Twain's marriage with Frédéric has also made her a bonus mother to her Swiss husband's son from his marriage, Johanna Thiebaud. Frédéric and his son don't seem to be big fans of the spotlight as the father-son has remained low-profile for all this while; Twain, however, has made sure she provides a little insight on her son's life and motherhood.

"He has been making music for a few years now," the country singer once said about her son, who is following in his superstar mother's footsteps. Shania further explains, "He is very devoted and a real hard worker. He's got a crazy passion for making music, and it's really fun to watch."

But unlike his mother, Eja reportedly has a passion for electronic music. Although Eja also comes off as a spotlight-shy person, he could be debuting anytime soon. Twain revealed that Eja frequently accompanies her in the studio, and the two enjoy working together. "I use the guitar; he uses synthesizers. You never know, maybe someday we'll come up with something great," the proud mother shared.
