From People:

Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger’s relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne’s upcoming fifth studio album.

“A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together,” a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE.

On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler.

“He makes her so happy,” a family source tells PEOPLE. “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.

If Avril and Chad here are happy together, them I’m happy for them. I wish them all the best in their marriage. But they wrote music together? Really? That terrifies me. This is the girl that screeched out a song called “Sk8er Boi” and the guy who growls out stupid lyrics like “what the hell is on Joey’s head?” Can the world take their combined powers of horrible, terrible music?

  • Who the fuck cares. It’s like saying a poop and a crap both smelled poorly together. No one gives a shit about this vapid, talentless fart-steak.

  • Oh my gosh!!!!
    How can you say that!!! They have more talent than almost all the other freaking singers out there, these people can actually write music and play instruments. Unlike loads of other pop stars out there who have other singer/song writers writing the songs for them electronic devices doing all the instrumental work for them :o AND WHEN AVRIL sings she does not screech! She sings it from her heart, and all her lyrics ACTUALLY have meanings behind them. Does Katy perry’s music have meaning? Does Lady gaga’s? Or is it just all fake? I don’t know myself but all I know is I don’t see them singing with and for passion I see them singing for attention and popularity. Avril is not like that!!!!!!

  • People are so judgemental. If you actually bothered to listen to Avril Lavinges music then you would see that A. She has an amazing voice. and B. She has meaning behind her songs. And you know if you actually listen to Nickelback without knowing anything about them you would think that they arent that bad. At least They can play instruments!! I’m so sick of all the hate. And I’m glad that I actually have an opinion based on the SINGING AND MEANING not based on what other people think. And to all the haters, look at yourself? Can you sing well? Are you famous? Are you succesful? I didnt think so.

  • I cant believe how many faceless Idiots there are in our world .my humble oppion is that Chad Kroger& nickleback are fantastic ,I love the fact they have hearts and write about life.And Avril Lavigne is also very talented.Chads music has helped me thru some hard and hurtful times,and isnt that exactly what great performers are suppost to do.Im very happy they found each other and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.
