Now, after six months of dating on the downlow, the Canadian couple is engaged. 27-year-old Avril and 37-year-old Chad first got together in February to co-write a song for her upcoming album.
A source says: “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together.”
On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler. ”Both of their families could not be more excited.”
It will be Kroeger’s first trip down the aisle, and the second marriage for Lavigne, who split from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009. She had also dated Brody Jenner.
