The COVID-19 pandemic has definitely had a drastic effect on marriages. While some couples are calling it quits, others are more in love than ever before. Country music sensation Shania Twain recently gave ET an exclusive look at her marriage during quarantine.
“You learn so much about each other, but I think more than anything, I’ve learned a lot about myself,” Shania said about her time in isolation with her husband, Frédéric Thiébaud. “We’re closer, for sure. I think we realized through this that we’re definitely going to make it.”
“There’s always those moments where you’re like, ‘Holy cow. How much more time can I spend with this one person?’” the singer continued. “But you realize as well that it is the right person. You realize a lot about yourself and what you really want, and I would never want to be alone in my life, so it’s a good thing.”
Shania Twain and Frédéric Thiébaud Are Quarantining Near Lake Geneva
Shania posted a sweet photo back in the spring on her Instagram page.
“Lucky that I love spending time with this one ❤️ Tag your quarantine partner at home or online that’s keeping you 😁” she captioned the picture of herself and Frédéric. The couple is currently hunkered down in Frédéric Thiébaud’s native country, Switzerland.
The couple married in 2011 and have been very happy ever since, but that doesn’t mean things are always perfect.
“We’ve discovered a lot of wonderful things about each other,” Shania tells ET. “We’ve [also] discovered some things about each other that drive us crazy, but those are the moments where it’s like, ‘If I can get through this, great.’ [Things like,] ‘Did you forgot to put your shoes away?’ Socks — all that stuff! If you can get through this together, happy and with more respect for each other, we’ll be together for the rest of our lives.”
Could We See a New Album Soon?
While at home, Shania Twain is spending lots of time being creative and coming up with new music.
“With the whole [coronavirus] experience, there isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not sad [from] watching others struggle and the difficulties it’s creating for so many people around the world,” says Shania. “On the other hand, I’m seeing people going out of the way to reflect positivity and find the good in everything, so that’s inspired me to stay more positive with my writing. The album is quite energetic [and] uplifting. This period has encouraged me to tap into my positive nature.”
Shania Twain came up with so many new songs, she hopes to release a few new records in the spring. We can’t wait to see what she came up with!
