After just six months of dating, 27-year-old singer Avril Lavigne has gotten engaged to Chad Kroeger, frontman of band Nickelback. Avril’s representative has confirmed the engagement, with the pair meeting when they worked together on Avril’s forthcoming fifth album.
A source said, “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together.” Families of both Avril and Chad – who proposed with a 14-carat diamond ring – are thrilled by the news. The source added: “He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited.” The marriage will be Avril’s second, and Chad’s first, after Avril wed Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley in July 2006. They split three years later.
We can only wish Avril better luck in her second marriage and, as ever, we can’t wait to see what the dress will look like!
