Canada has a new royal couple of rock 'n' roll.
Avril Lavigne and Nickleback lead singer Chad Kroeger are engaged following a hush-hush, six-month courtship reports People mag. Lavigne's rep confirmed the news, which may comes as a shock to many fans as word never spread about their romantic union.
Aside from a string of paparazzi shots that tracked a romantic getaway Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, took to Paris in May, little is known about their relationship, which People reports started in February when Kroeger was drafted to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album.
The proposal went down on Aug. 8, courtesy of a whopping 14-carat diamond ring.
"He makes her so happy," a family source revealed to People. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
The marriage will be Lavigne's second and Kroeger's first. Lavigne married Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley in 2006, after dating for two years. The couple divorced in 2009. Most recently, Lavigne was linked to Brody Jenner, whom she dated from spring 2010 until January 2012.
Kroeger dated former hair salon owner Marianne Gurick from 2002 to 2009. While the couple never married, they had a common-law partnership.
