Sk8r girl Avril Lavigne and rocker Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger have announced that they are engaged to be married after secretly dating for only six months!
People reported that Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have managed to keep their romance on the down low from their fans for six months, and now they are ready to go public with their big plans to wed.
Avril's close friend told People: "A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together."
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album.
Chad Kroeger asked Avril Lavigne to be his wife on August 8, presenting the singer with a huge 14-carat diamond engagement ring.
A member of Avril's family stated to the magazine: "He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited."
This will be Avril Lavigne's second marriage, she divorced Sum 41 lead singer Deryck Whibley in 2009. She has also been linked with Brody Jenner. For Chad Kroeger this will be his first marriage.
No wedding date has been set (that we know of!), but with these sneaky songbirds they could be married tomorrow and we'd all be none the wiser!
