According to People on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, a rep of Avril Lavigne confirmed to them that the Canadian musicians are now engaged and to be married, but the details of the wedding, including the date were not mentioned.
As noted in the report, Kroeger, 37, and Lavigne, 27, started dating back in February, and their relationship blossomed when they got together to co-write a song for Lavigne‘s upcoming fifth album, which is yet to have a title. Avril even tweeted a photo of them that month, where Chad is seen hugging her.
“He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited.” A family source was quoted telling to People, as Kroeger reportedly proposed for marriage to Lavigne last August 8 and presented to her a 14-carat diamond ring.
This will be the second marriage for Avril Lavigne, who married Deryck Whibley, lead singer and guitarist for the band Sum 41, on July 15 2006, when she was only 21 years old. The couple reportedly split in September 2009 and their divorce was finalized in November 2010.
In the spring of 2010, Lavigne reportedly began dating reality TV personality Brody Jenner but they decided to part ways last January. After a month, she met Kroeger, who has no reported earlier relationships and will be married for the first time.
