The "You're Still the One" singer tied the knot with Swiss businessman Frederic Thiebaud in Puerto Rico on New Year's Day, January 1, 2011 just weeks after their engagement was announced. Her representative told People magazine, "They were married at sunset in Rincon, Puerto Rico, in front of 40 of their closest family and friends."

Following news of their engagement, Shania took to her blog to express her delight at the news and said she was excited about her future. She said, "2010 is leaving me with a renewed faith in love and commitment. ... Talking about love, 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! (sic)"

Shania was previously married to Robert 'Mutt' Lange but their 14-year union ended in May 2008 after he embarked on a relationship her friend and Frederic's ex-wife Marie-Anne Thiebaud and she has said that experience has shown her who her true friends really are.

Shania, who has a nine-year-old son, Eja, with her ex, said, "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."

"These people have been gifts, and I am fortunate to have so many of these beautiful people - friends, family and beloved fans, who's support I cherish more deeply with each day that passes. Now another year is about to pass, and I would like to thank everyone who helped me believe that new beginnings are possible and that love can be trusted."
