Do they do April Fool's Day in August in Canada? Is this some kind of hilarious internet hoax? Or could it be true.? Is Avril Lavigne engaged to Chad Kroeger ? Of Nickelback? The news came straight outta leftfield; Avril and Chad have done such a good job of keeping their relationship under wraps that few people even knew they were dating. And let's face it, it's not that long since Avril ended her last relationship, so the news that she's now engaged seems pretty wild, even by fickle-celebrity-relationship standards.
Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner split earlier this year. around the same time, it seems that Avril and Chad worked on a track together for Lavigne's forthcoming studio album, People magazine reports. A source told the magazine that it was that creative partnership that developed into something more: "A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together." Things have clearly moved fast for Chad and Avril; on August 8, 2012, Chad, 37 proposed to Avril, 27 and she accepted the 14-carat diamond ring that he presented to her. "He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited," a 'family source' told People.
This will be the second trip down the aisle for Avril; she was previously married to Deryck Whibley of Sum 41, from whom she split in 2009, before dating Brody Jenner. Chad, on the other hand, hasn't married before. So, will it be a long engagement for the couple, or will they tie the knot as hastily as Chad got down on one knee?
