Washington: Avril Lavigne is now engaged to be married to Nickelback’s frontman Chad Kroeger, her representative has revealed.
The 27-year-old singer’s 6-month relationship with Chad Kroeger was so quiet, that few even knew they were dating.
The Canadian rockers had first gotten 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,” People magazine quoted Lavigne’s friend as saying.
On August 8, Kroeger proposed to Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler.
“He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited,” a source said.
It will be Kroeger’s first marriage and second for Lavigne after she split from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009.
Lavigne has also dated Brody Jenner in the past.
