Avril Lavigne Is Engaged To Nickelback Singer Chad Kroeger
Breaking news out of Canada that will delight both the internet community and comedians alike!
Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger's relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne's rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album. "A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE. On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler. "He makes her so happy," a family source tells PEOPLE. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
This will be Chad's first marriage and Avril's second. (Remember Sum 41's Deryck Whibley?) I guess she has a thing for the front men of Canadian bands? Anyway, here are all the photos of the two of them together that the internet has to offer:
