Who would’ve thunk it? It came as a shock to everyone when the news recently broke that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger were a couple – and an engaged one at that. Wasn’t she just dating Brody Jenner? Here’s the 411 on this quickie engagement:
Well, the two Canadian singers first met in February when they linked up to co-write a song for Lavigne’s upcoming album, and the rest is history. While the couple have kept their relationship under wraps, apparently they have been together for just 6 months. Love at first sight, maybe? A friend of Lavigne’s tells People Magazine, “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together. He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited.”
37-year-old Kroeger popped the question on August 8th to the 27-year-old pop-punk rock star with a massive 14 carat diamond ring — cue the “oohs” and “aahs”! When asked about her hubby-to-be, Lavigne tells Hello! Magazine, “He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive,” while Kroeger says he “feels like the luckiest person alive!”
While this will be Kroeger’s first go-around, this will be Lavigne’s second time walking down the aisle as she was married to Sum 41′s Deryck Whibley for three years in 2006.
Congrats to the rock star couple! What you think of this duo?Tags: Avril Lavigne, Chad Kroeger, engaged, Nickelback
