Shania Twain is happily engaged to Swiss businessman Frédéric Thiébaud – and now she's sharing her bliss directly with fans.

In a letter posted Tuesday morning on her official Web site, the country superstar opens up about her "renewed faith in love and commitment" and all the people in her life who supported her.

"In the last two and a half years of adjusting to life after separation and divorce, I needed to lean on others more often than I was accustomed to," Twain writes. "These people have been gifts, and I am fortunate to have so many of these beautiful people – friends, family and beloved fans, [whose] support I cherish more deeply with each day that passes."

"Talking about love," she continues, "I am excited to share some personal news with you; I'm in love! Frederic Nicolas Thiebaud has been a true gift to me as a compassionate, understanding friend and over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this precious friendship. Fred and I are happy to announce, our ENGAGEMENT!"

With all the tragedy and heartache in her life, Shania Twain has enough material for a catalog of country songs – and now she's put it all in a book.

"There have been moments in my life I was concerned by the reality that tomorrow would never come. Recently I experienced one of those moments to an intensity that brought on a sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time, before I had the opportunity to share an honest and complete account of my life, in my own words," said Twain, 45, whose marriage famously fell apart in 2008 after her husband had an affair with one of her best friends.

"There are times in your life that are meant for reflection, and this was one of them," she added. "I began writing this book with a sincere respect for the past, present and future as something never to be taken for granted."

Shania Twain Is Officially Divorced – and 'Radiantly Happy'

Originally posted 06/09/2010 08:00AM

Two years after getting her heart broken by her husband's relationship with her best friend, Shania Twain is legally single again – which is not to say she's back on the market.

Even as her divorce from Robert "Mutt" Lange was quietly being finalized in Switzerland, Twain, 44, was looking like a woman in love at the Swiss Red Cross Ball on May 29. Dancing the night away with Frédéric Thiébaud (the other woman's ex-husband), 40, "she was radiantly happy," says a source close to her.

"Her happiness certainly shone through," says her friend Stéphane Lagonico, an ambassador for the Swiss Red Cross, who organized the ball. "They are a great addition to each other's lives."

Shania Twain: I'm Emerging from a 'Very Deep, Dark Slump'

Originally posted 04/09/2010 08:00AM

Country-music star Shania Twain says doing a reality show on Oprah Winfrey's new cable network is another step toward embracing life as she continues to recover from heartache.

"I feel like in a way I'm starting over, with everything," Twain, 44, told Winfrey in an interview at an event in New York on Thursday. "This is a very personal experience that I think is important to share. This is an experience of recovery. I was in a very deep, dark slump, and I needed to find a way to get myself out of it. I had to force myself back out into life, back out into experiencing things."

Twain's marriage of 14 years to Robert "Mutt" Lange collapsed in May 2008 due to Lange's relationship with Twain's longtime friend and assistant, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. In the months that followed, Twain said, there were times when she had no passion or interest in anything.

POLL: Who Do You Want to Perform at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies?

Originally posted 02/03/2010 10:45AM

The world will be watching as the Winter Olympics kicks off Feb. 12 at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium. And while the traditionally lavish proceedings introduce the competing athletes to viewers, the host country is responsible for providing the headlining entertainment. (Remember China's awe-inspiring fleet of dancers and musicians during 2008's summer games?)

Typically, the performers herald from the host country – and Canada has produced a ton of world-renowned talent – from Bryan Adams to pop upstart Justin Bieber to Neil Young. Already, Shania Twain carried the Olympic torch in freezing temperatures through her hometown, Timmins, Ontario. Hopefully she'll get a chance behind the mic in Vancouver, too.

After stopping for a quick photo op, Twain jumped up and down, smiled, waved and lit a ceremonial cauldron to kick off a show.
