Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger dish on their wedding day
Despite the fact she’s just released her latest track ‘Here’s to Never Growing Up,’ it seems there’s one very special memory that’s keeping Avril Lavigne on top of the world right now – the romantic wedding proposal she got from her fiancé Chad Kroeger!
The 28-year-old pop punk princess appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show yesterday to promote her new single, accompanied by her main man Chad – and the star wasn’t shy about dishing on how the lovebirds got together.
“We met in the studio,” revealed the ‘What the Hell’ singer.
“Wrote a bunch of songs together, became really good friends, and now we have a wedding coming up soon!”
Although Avril remained tight-lipped about the details of her wedding day, she did admit the couple are “planning it” and “there is a theme,” with Chad chiming in to joke that he’s handed the reigns to his wife-to-be with regards to prep for the Big Day.
“Every man knows we get very little participation in the wedding and these are good things—or else [heavy metal band] Steel Panther ends up playing,” he quipped.
And there’s no denying the Nickleback front man is head-over-heels for his lady love, gushing to Ryan about how the pair progressed their relationship from friends to lovers.
“I think it evolved into this wonderful thing,” he shared.
“When you're sitting there, singing across from somebody into the microphone and singing love songs and you start developing these feelings for that person, and it just blossomed into this thing and last summer we started dating and I didn't take long, I got down on one knee.”
Then it was Avril’s turn to share how Chad’s proposal went down after just one month of dating.
“He proposed in the studio,” Avril revealed.
“I have been making this scrapbook of my time in the studio with a Polaroid camera and the only thing that was weird was I walked into the studio and he was putting a picture in to the book and I was like ‘What is he doing?'…And all of a sudden I walk over and he had taken a photo of himself holding the ring box and put the Polaroid in my scrapbook and because I had stickers everywhere he put in ‘Will you marry me?' It was really romantic.”
