Shania Twain has got engaged to the man who she comforted after their partners had an affair.

Shania's manager Jason Owen confirmed that the country singer has a new fiance in the shape of business executive Frederic Thiebaud.

The news was first reported by Us Weekly.

Shania confirmed in August 2009 that she was dating Frederic after her divorce from Robert "Mutt" Lange, who had an affair with Shania's best friend and Frederic's wife, Marie-Anne Thiebaud.

She reached out to Frederic in the aftermath, and wrote on her website last year that she had found "a dear friend and true gentleman".

There is no word yet on when or where the wedding will be. Shania, who has stepped away from the spotlight over the past few years, has an autobiography due out in the spring and is scheduled to have her own show on Oprah Winfrey's television network.
