Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne has shocked the world by announcing her engagement to Nickelback rocker, Chad Kroeger. The couple had been involved in a secret six-month romance before stunning fans with the news on Tuesday evening.
The “Sk8er Boi” hitmaker fell in love with the frontman after they teamed up to write a song for her new album in February, but they miraculously managed to keep their romance private.
The shocking announcement was first posted on Nickelback’s official Twitter.com page, before Lavigne re-tweeted the message; her representative also confirmed the news.
Lavigne was previously married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley until they split in 2009. She also dated reality TV star Brody Jenner but they split earlier this year.
