Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger, celebrated their first year of marriage recently and the “Hello Kitty” singer showed off her impressive anniversary gift.
Lavigne tweeted, then deleted, a photo of a 17-carat diamond ring her husband gave her, gushing, "I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby.”
According to E! Online, this is the second massive diamond Kroeger has given her. When they got engaged, he proposed with a 14-carat ring.
The couple tied the knot July 1, 2013, on Canada Day, in France at Chateau de Napoule. Kroeger popped the question in August 2012 after only six months of dating.
Lavigne was previously married to Sum 41’s Deryck Whibley for three years until 2009 and this is Kroeger’s first marriage.
Lavigne will be performing in Japan this month for the first time since receiving backlash for her music video for “Hello Kitty,” with critics claiming it was racist and exploited Japanese culture.
