Who is Frederic Thiebaud?
Frederic Thiebaud was born on 8 January 1970, in Switzerland, and is an executive, but is perhaps best known for being the wife of Canadian singer Shania Twain. His wife is rated as the best selling female artist in country music history, and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. She is also known under the moniker, Queen of Country Pop.
The Wealth of Frederic Thiebaud
How rich is Frederic Thiebaud? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $3.5 million, earned through a successful career in business. He is a part of Nestle, which is one of the world’s most successful companies.
His wealth has also likely been elevated thanks to the success of his wife, who has a net worth estimated by sources to be over $400 million. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his personal wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career
There is almost no information surrounding Frederic’s past before his association with Shania, as despite his job he is not a very public person. He has not shared details regarding his family, childhood, education, and even details about his career are scarce.
It is known that he grew up in a middle-class family in Switzerland, and always had a strong interest towards music. However, he did not pursue a career in that field, instead focusing his efforts towards business development. He joined the company Nestle, and rose up the ranks to become one of its executives. Nestle is a Swiss food and drink conglomerate, known as the largest food company in the world, and ranked 64th in the Fortune Global 500 in 2017. They offer numerous types of food including baby food, bottled water, cereals, dairy products, frozen food, snacks, and especially chocolate.
Wife – Shania Twain
Eileen Regina Edwards – known professionally as Shania Twain – was born on 28 August 1965, in Windsor, Ontario Canada, and pursued a singing career from a young age, developing her music and songwriting capabilities from her childhood. During the early-1990s, she signed with Mercury Nashville Records which is the country music subsidiary of Universal Music Group. She kick-started her career there, and her self-titled debut album gained a lot of critical and commercial success upon its release in 1993.
She then partnered with producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange in the creation of her second album entitled “The Woman in Me”, which elevated her to stardom, as it brought her widespread success, selling 20 million copies worldwide, with the single “Any Man of Mine” earning her a Grammy Award. Her next album release would be in 1997 entitled “Come on Over”, and it became the bestselling studio album of all time by a female artist of any genre, and the best-selling country album, selling around 40 million copies worldwide.
The album contained numerous successful singles such as “You’re Still the One”, “From This Moment On”, and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman”. She earned four Grammy awards from that album, and then worked on the album “Up!” in 2002 which gained Diamond certification in the US.
Shania’s Hiatus and Return to Music
In 2004 Shania surprised many when she declared that she was going on an indefinite hiatus. She later revealed that she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease and dysphonia, which significantly affected her voice, leaving it weak.
She took a long time to recover and rehabilitate, later talking about her path to health in the miniseries “Why Not? With Shania Twain”. In 2011, she released her first album in six years entitled “Today Is Your Day”, and also published her autobiography.
The following year, she returned to performing by launching her Rock This Country Tour around North America, which was billed as her farewell tour. However, she subsequently released her first album in 15 years entitled “Now” in 2017, which led to her Shania Now Tour.
Music is a great natural high and a great natural escape.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America, she is the only female artist to have three consecutive albums certified Diamond, and is the sixth best-selling female artist of all time in the US.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Frederic was married once before his relationship with Shania Twain, actually to her best friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud, but their marriage ended in divorce after it was discovered that she was having an affair with Shania’s husband Robert John “Mutt” Lange. Shania also divorced shortly afterwards, and the couples essentially exchanged spouses, as a few months later it was reported that Shania had become engaged to Frederic.
The two married in 2011, in Rincon, Puerto Rico, and now reside in Corseaux, Switzerland, with Shania’s son from her previous marriage.
One of the reasons there is very limited information about him is due to the lack of any strong online presence on the major social media websites including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. In this way he retains his privacy, and supports his wife from the background. Due to the nature of her work, Shania is very active online, with accounts on Facebook and Twitter, mainly using them to promote her work, while also posting a bit about her life away from music, but her husband rarely makes appearances on her accounts. She owns several pet dogs, as revealed by her photos.
