Twain's manager, Jason Owen, confirmed the news on Monday after celebrity magazines such as Us Weekly and People reported Twain's upcoming nuptials.
No other details, such as the date of the wedding, were released.
The singer, who was born in Windsor, Ont., and raised in Timmins in northern Ontario, confirmed in 2009 that she was dating Thiébaud, a Swiss-born executive with Nestlé.
Her 14-year marriage to Robert (Mutt) Lange fell apart in 2008 following allegations the hit music producer was having an affair with Marie-Anne Thiébaud, who had worked for the couple at their Swiss chateau and who was at the time married to Frédéric.
After their respective divorces, Twain, 45, revealed she reached out to Frédéric and the two grew closer.
"Having gone through the suffering of his family splitting apart at the same time and under the same extreme circumstances, he understands me better than anyone," Twain revealed to her fans in an open letter in August 2009.

We've become stronger and closer through it all, as have our children, Eja [her son with Lange] and Johanna, Fred's eight-year-old daughter."
Amid her personal problems, Twain drew away from the celebrity spotlight, but has been slowly returning with the occasional public appearance, including serving as a guest judge on American Idol.
Atria Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, announced this fall that the Grammy Award-winning Twain will publish an autobiography in the spring.
She is also set to host Why Not? With Shania Twain, a show about coping with life after divorce, on Oprah Winfrey's new TV network, OWN.

Funeral Arrangements Set For Craig Morgan's Son Jerry

Jerry Michael Hardy Greer is the son of Craig and Karen Greer. He was 19 years old on the day of his going home. Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room. He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve. He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts.

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
