Twain and Frederic Thiebaud started the new year by getting hitched, People reports. "They were married at sunset in Rincon, Puerto Rico, in front of 40 of their closest family and friends," Twain's rep tells the magazine.

Though they've been together for more than a year, Twain and Thiebaud didn't waste a whole lot of time between proposal and wedding vows. The couple got engaged in the fall, and word of their betrothal became public less than two weeks ago.

Twain and Thiebaud were brought together by tough circumstances: Their respective spouses allegedly had an affair with each other. In announcing their engagement on her website, Twain had this to say about Thiebaud: "Frederic ... has been a true gift to me as a compassionate, understanding friend and over time, an amazing love has blossomed from this precious friendship."

Cheers to the couple, who should have no trouble remembering their anniversary date in years to come.
