Avril Lavigne is engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. The Canadian couple had been dating quietly for the past six months when on August 8, Kroeger proposed to Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond ring. The relationship reportedly heated up when Kroeger began working with Lavigne on her upcoming album.
"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a friend of Lavigne tells People. "He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited."
This will be Chad's first time heading to the alter and Avril's second time walking down the aisle, after wedding Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2006 and then divorcing in 2009.
Lavigne was previously linked to Brody Jenner, son of Olympian Bruce, whose wife is Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. The pair split up in January.
