OFFSTAGE: Shania Twain Blogs “I’m in Love!”

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Spoken like a true bride-to-be, Shania Twain‘s website now has her own heartfelt words about what a true gift her new fiance Frederic Nicolas Thiebaud has been. The two began as friends, and now she says, “Over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this precious friendship. Fred and I are happy to announce, our ENGAGEMENT!” It’s not all a bed of roses, though. Twain admits that the past couple of years after her divorce, she’s had to lean on people more than she’s used to. But the bottom line is, any woman who says that she is embracing the beauty of life today and that love can be trusted and that she believes in the right to be loved, is a woman who is madly in love. I wish Twain and Thiebaud a lifetime of happiness. And maybe, hopefully, some new country music will come of that.
