And you’re probably wondering, “Why, Sarah, why is it weird that two people could have found love and wanted to make it official by getting engaged?” and then I would answer, “Because it’s the f-cking dude from Nickelback, and it’s Avril Lavigne. And it was very abrupt. And that makes it weird.” And that answer would have to suffice, because I have no other.
Anyway, this is Avril Lavigne‘s zillion-carat diamond engagement ring, which, if you can see detail, is pear-shaped with two crescent moon-like things on either side. And it’s kind of pretty, considering it was purchased with ‘Photograph’ money.
Here’s the official rundown of just how happy the two are together, from Canada’s Hello! magazine:
This week’s issue of Hello! Canada magazine, due out Thursday, has an exclusive interview with the newly announced Canadian music power duo in which Kroeger says: “I feel like the luckiest person alive.”
He also reveals he used a scrapbook to pop the question to Lavigne as the pair worked together on her upcoming fifth studio album in Los Angeles.
“It happened in their recording studio. She was scrapbooking and he added a page to the scrapbook, and the page said: ‘Will you marry me?”‘ Alison Eastwood, editor-in-chief of Hello! Canada, said Wednesday in a telephone interview.
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, shocked music fans and media outlets Tuesday when they announced their engagement after a six-month courtship that flew under the radar of most pop-culture enthusiasts.
Hello! Canada was among those who didn’t previously know of their romance and was “quite surprised” when the couple approached them within the last week to share their story and engagement photographs, said Eastwood.
“I think we can safely call them Canada’s new super couple. Between them they have sold, I think, something like 18 million albums, so they’re quite a powerhouse.”

And it definitely lends credence to the whole ‘Photograph’ allusion above—wouldn’t it be so Chad Kroeger to be scrapbooking with “photographs,” incorporating a “will you marry me” page? Because just watch this video, OK? Just once:
OMG I LOL EVERYTIME.
