Surprise! Did you even know she had a boyfriend?
After six months of a very private, practically unknown relationship, The LA Times reported Avril Lavigne, 27, and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, 37, are engaged.
A source told PEOPLE magazine, “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together.”
Kroeger proposed to the rocker on Aug. 8 with a 14-carat diamond ring.
The Canadian duo began a relationship after co-writing songs in February for Lavigne’s fifth upcoming studio album.
A family source told PEOPLE, “He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited.”
This will be Kroeger’s first time to say “I do,” but Avril has walked down the aisle before.
Sum 41 guitar player Deryck Whibley and Lavigne divorced in 2009 after a three-year marriage.
Avril also dated Brody Jenner, son of Olympic champion Bruce Jenner, who we all know as the quirky stepfather to the Kardashian clan.
Lavigne famously tattooed Jenner’s name on her ribcage as a sign of devotion.
The two split in January, one month before Lavigne and Kroeger began working together.
Let’s hope Avril’s hubby-to-be can overlook that tattoo!
