Given name: Eilleen Regina Edwards; her chosen name, Shania, is the Ojibwa Indian word for "I'm on my way"; Twain is the surname of her adoptive father.
Name change: "There was a wardrobe mistress in a show I once did, and her name was Shania. I thought the name was beautiful. When I first got my record deal, they told me 'Eilleen Twain' didn't flow and I had to change my surname. But I refused because my parents had passed away and I wanted to keep my family name. So I changed my first to Shania."

My husband, Mutt, is the producer of my dreams and the love of my life."  

Son: Eja (pronounced Asia), born Aug. 12, 2001  

Childhood dreams: "To live in a brick house and eat roast beef, to be kidnapped by Frank Sinatra and to be Stevie Wonder's backup singer."

Going veggie: In 2000, Shania was voted "Sexiest Vegetarian Alive" by readers of Animal Times magazine. However, when she was a girl, her father taught Shania and her siblings how to kill their own food. "My job was to set the rabbit snares," she reveals. "I'm a vegetarian now, but I don't look down on people who eat meat."

How she unwinds: reading, horseback riding and crying shamelessly at films like My Best Friend's Wedding
