When you know, you know. Avril Lavigne and her fiance, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, knew they were destined to be together the moment they first sat across from each other in the recording studio last summer to work on Lavigne's upcoming album, the couple revealed in a recent interview.
"When you're sitting there across from someone singing into the microphone and you're singing a love song, you start to develop feelings for them," Kroeger, 38, told Ryan Seacrest in a joint interview with Lavigne on Tuesday, April 9. "And it just kind of blossomed into this kind of thing and the next thing you know ... we started dating [last summer]."
Lavigne added that fellow Canadian Kroeger was quick to make his feelings be known -- and she immediately reciprocated.
"We started dating and the next day he was like, 'You know I'm gonna marry you,'" the "Complicated" singer recalled. "And I said, 'I know.' It was one of those things that we just knew."
Kroeger and Lavigne, 28, announced their engagement last August after just one month of dating, surprising both family and fans.
"Things just clicked real quick," Kroeger had told radio station K104.7 in April, prior to their engagement. "And then she wanted me to sing on one of [her songs] and then we just started flying on all these different songs."
Lavigne's interpretation of their whirlwind relationship is likewise simple. "Well that's how we met -- in the studio -- and I was really excited to work with him because he's also a musician," she told Seacrest of how their relationship developed. "[We] wrote a bunch of songs together, became really good friends and now we have a wedding."
Indeed! As Lavigne prepares to launch her as yet untitled first album since 2011's "Goodbye Lullaby" (the pair collaborates on several songs, including the new single "Here's to Never Growing Up,") the couple is also planning a "spectacular" wedding together, Lavigne told Seacrest.
"It's kind of just a lot of close friends and family. It is smaller," she said of their plans. "[But] it's gonna be quite spectacular and there's a theme to it. But Chad doesn't even know everything."
Agreed Kroeger: "Every man knows that we get very little participation in the planning -- and these are good things."
