Shania Twain has wed fiance Frederic Thiebaud in Puerto Rico.

The couple rang in the New Year with the ceremony in Rincon on Saturday, just weeks after announcing their engagement.

The pair started dating in 2009 and Twain announced the news of her engagement in a letter to fans she posted on her website last month.

She wrote, "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."

Here's where it gets interesting - Thibaud's ex-wife Marie-Anne is Twain's former best friend. She cheated on him with music producer Robert "Mutt" Lange - Twain's husband of 14 years; who abruptly left her in May 2008.

Soon after the shocking double betrayal, Twain and Thibaud found comfort in each other. Everyone denied their inter-relationship doings until Twain finally admitted the new romance in August 2009, when she wrote about Thibaud on her official site.

"[Frederic is] a dear friend and true gentleman...We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We've become stronger and closer through it all," she said.

Few details of the nuptials are available but People.com reports 40 of the couple's closest friends and family members were present for the New Year's Day wedding.
