Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger Reportedly Engaged to Avril Lavigne
It’s a match made in…well, Canada. What started as a shared love of hockey, bacon that’s actually salty ham, and sappy ballads, has blossomed into something much more as Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger has popped the question to pop-Sk8er chick Avril Lavigne.
All Canada jokes aside, pictures of the couple surfaced back in March via Lavigne’s Twitter account, accompanied by the message “Bro’ing out with Chad Kroeger in the studio.” Kroeger was lending his pop songwriting sensibilities to Avril for a track on her new album. The chemistry was so electric, the pair ended up working on several songs together and apparently began dating on the down low.
Despite the fact that Kroeger is ten years her senior, People magazine reports that after six months of dating the Nickelback singer popped the question to the 27-year old with a 14-karat diamond on August 8th. Hopefully the two will enjoy a long, bro-tastic marriage. Interested parties can check out the couples wedding registry at Tim Horton’s, eh?
Lavigne was previously hitched to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, but the couple divorced in 2009 after just three years of matrimony.
