We didn’t even know singer Avril Lavigne was seeing anyone, let alone fellow rocker Chad Kroeger of Nickelback fame. And now we’re blown over by the news that the couple is engaged after a romance that has been going on for half a year!
Lavigne and Kroeger teamed up earlier this year to write and record a number for the Sk8er Boi hitmaker’s new album. Sparks flew, but they somehow kept it all under wraps. There wasn’t even any speculation about the relationship.
It all came to light first on Nickelback’s twitter page and then on Lavigne’s. Meanwhile, a rep for Lavigne has also re-confirmed the happy news.
This will be Lavigne’s second trip down the aisle, her first being with frontman of Sum 41, Deryck Whibley. She divorced Whibley in 2009 and then started dating Brody Jenner, a coupling that came to an end earlier this year.
Here’s wishing them a marriage that rocks as much as their music!
