Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger make quite the pair, eh?
According to People magazine, Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Kroeger have actually been dating for about six months, and CNN's confirmed that the two are now engaged.
While we can think of a few who haven't fallen in love with Nickelback's approach to music, Lavigne apparently isn't among them. It seems Kroeger, 37, swept the 27-year-old off her feet with his songwriting skills before proposing earlier this month with a 14-carat diamond ring, People reports.
The now-engaged pair reportedly got to know one another in February while working on a song for Lavigne's new album, and "a romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a friend of the songstress told People mag.
Their impending nuptials will be Kroeger's first marriage and Lavigne's second, as she was previously wed to another Canadian musician, Sum 41's Deryck Whibley. Lavigne also dated Brody Jenner for about two years before E! announced their split in January. We wonder if she's still sporting his name on her rib cage?
