I don’t know about any of you, but I had no idea that Chad Kroeger (lead singer of Nickelback) and Avril Lavigne were engaged. I was listening to the radio this morning while driving into the office and heard the news.
The couple have been dating now for over six months (probably the most quiet celebrity relationship in a very long time) and they are engaged to be married by the end of the year.
The two first met in February when they got together to co-write a song for Ms. Lavigne’s upcoming studio album. While writing the song a “romantic relationship blossomed”.
Word on the street is that Chad popped the question on August 8th, presenting Avril with a stunning 14-carat diamond ring (platinum-set pear-shape diamond with half moons) that was designed by Caryn Alpert. This will be Chad’s first marriage and the second marriage for Avril who was married to Sum 41 singer, Deryck Whibley.
We hope you enjoy one of the first pictures of Avril Lavigne’s engagement ring and lastly, to be completely honest, we at EmpyreJewelry.com are thrilled that Chad his awful locks of hair
