Shania Twain Says “Faith And Courage” Allowed Her To Love Again After Heartbreak
CMT / Twitter
Country singer Shania Twain has had an interesting route to true love.
She was previously married to producer Robert “Mutt” Lange from 1993-2008. They had son Eja in 2001.
In 2008, she found out he was allegedly having an affair with her good friend and the couple’s personal assistant, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. It was actually Frédéric, Marie-Anne’s then-husband, who informed the singer of the affair.
They confided in each other and eventually fell in love. After each of them divorced, they were married.
“I didn’t want to love again-it was the last thing on my mind,” Shania told PEOPLE in 2011. “It’s just amazing how life works.”
Shania is usually pretty private about her marriage to Frédéric, even scarcely posting photos of the two together. Though recently on December 4, she shared a photo of her, Frédéric, and their two dogs from an in-home interview they did with L’illustré, a Swiss magazine.
Shania is doing lots of press for her current Las Vegas residency and covers the February/March 2020 cover of AARP Magazine, where she spoke about her unconventional love story with Frédéric.
“It’s twisted,” Shania said. “But so beautifully twisted.”
She also opened up to PEOPLE at the recent American Heart Association’s annual Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection fashion show.
“I’m so grateful I found the faith and courage to love again — because the last thing you want to do when you’re crushed is love again,” Shania said. “When you have a great loss, you lose faith; you get very discouraged. I’m sure a lot of people say, ‘I’m never going to love again. I never want to fall in love again.’ Songs have been written about that. I’m really glad that that got turned around for me, and that’s what this relationship is.”
We love to see Shania so happy!
