A lot of people had no idea these two were dating, but Avril Lavigne, 27, and Chad Kroeger, 37, have been going steady for 6 months and now they are engaged to be married, PEOPLE reports.
The two met in February when they started collaborating for Avrils‘ new album and, according to a source, “a romantic relationship bloomed as they spent time writing together”.
Six months later, the Nickelback frontman proposed with a 14-carat diamond ring, on August 8, 2012.
“He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited”, another source added.
The engagement was confirmed by Nickelback on their Twitter: “Congratulations Avril and Chad!” and the “Complicated” singer retweeted the post.
This will be Chad‘s first marriage and Lavigne‘s second. She was married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley and divorced in 2009.
Congratulations to Avril and Chad!
