It has been reported that Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger proposed to Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne on August 8.
This seems like a bit of surprising news because the couple kept their relationship on the down-low. People reports that the Canadian couple has been dating for around 6 months and now they are engaged to be married, as shown by the 14-carat rock on Lavigne’s ring finger, Lavigne’s representative has confirmed.
The couple first got together back in February to collaborate on a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album. Kroeger, 37 has never been married while Lavigne 27, was married to Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley for 3 years before they divorced in 2009, explains MTV. She then went on to date reality star Brody Jenner but ended that relationship earlier this year.
One of Lavigne’s close friends disclosed to MTV that “a romantic relationship blossomed as they spend time writing together.” Another friend stressed, “he makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited.
Neither of the pair have publicly commented on the recent proposal.
