Avril Lavigne Engaged To Nickelback's Chad Kroeger
Avril Lavigne, 27, surprised her fans with unexpected news that revealed her upcoming engagement to lead vocalist and guitarist of the Canadian band Nickelback, Chad Kroeger, 37.
The news may come as a shock because many didn't know that Lavigne, also from Canada, had even been dating Kroeger after her relationship with reality star Brody Jenner, 29, whom she dating about a year after her divorce from Sum 41's Deryck Whibley, 32, in 2009, fell apart earlier this year.
After six months together, however, in which Lavigne and Kroeger found love while writing a song together for Lavigne's fifth studio album, not yet released, the two are engaged. "A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," said a friend of Lavigne's, reports People. Kroeger reportedly gave Lavigne a 14-carat diamond engagement ring when he popped the question on August 8.
"He makes her so happy," said Lavigne's source. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
While Lavigne hasn't yet taken to Twitter about the news, she did retweet a message from Kroeger's band that read, "Congratulations Avril and Chad!"
