OFFSTAGE: Shania Twain’s Hot Husband

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

This month’s Redbook is all about hot husbands, including Shania Twain‘s husband, Frédéric Thiébaud. In fact, she’d like to nominate him for the Hottest award. Why? Um, have you heard the man’s Swiss accent? But that’s just me. Twain has her own reasons to put him on a pedestal. Prepare for your own husband to pale in comparison. (For God’s sake, even his name looks sexy.) According to Twain, Thiébaud has eyes that are “gentle, intelligent and alluring.” He is a true gentleman and he calls her Sunshy (short for Sunshine). Their favorite activities are kissing, talking and playing tennis. Plus, she says he taught her to stop and think before expressing herself. “Trust me, that’s hard for a girl who grew up cursing hockey refs,” she tells the magazine. But the best part is when she describes her husband this way: “He’s attentive, brighter than God should ever allow any one man to be, funny, romantic, and cute as heck.” Yep. That’s hot. He’s got my vote.
