Avril Lavigne And Chad Kroeger’s Surprise Engagement!

The Nickelback Rocker Has Reportedly Popped The Question...

Not many people even knew they were dating, but apparently Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger are now engaged!

According to People magazine, 37-year-old Chad popped the question to the ‘I’m With You’ singer on August 8 with a 14-carat diamond ring!

Sparks reportedly first flew when the Canadian rockers were working together on material for Avril’s new album back in February, but they chose to keep their relationship under wraps.

"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a friend of Avril’s told People magazine.

And while the couple have yet to officially confirm the news, the 27-year-old songstress has been re-tweeting messages of congratulations from fans and also from Chad’s fellow bandmates, Ryan Peake, Mike Kroeger and Daniel Adair!

"Congratulations Avril and Chad!" Nickelback tweeted yesterday.

Avril previously tied the knot with Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley in 2006, before they divorced three years later. This will be Chad’s first marriage.

Congratulations guys!
