Following in the footsteps of their odd and unexpected engagement, Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger have decided to step out and show PEOPLE Levigne’s engagement ring.
Avril Lavigne, 27, and Chad Kroeger, 37, became engaged on August 8 after Kroeger fell in love with Avril while working on her fifth studio album with the pop singer. The two posed for cameras in an official couple’s photo with Avril showing her 14-carat diamond ring for the world to see.
This engagement comes pretty suddenly considering it hasn’t been that long since Lavigne and ex-boyfriend Brody Jenner went their separate ways in January after a long whirlwind romance. However, according to friends close to the Nickelback singer, the two aren’t in a rush to get married. When they do walk down the aisle, it will be the second for Avril, who was previously married to Sum 41 singer Deryck Whibley. The two divorced in 2009 after four years of marriage.
Although a random pairing to the world, their friends and family fully support their relationship,and have spoken out to PEOPLE.
“They complement each other and are so happy.”
The only indication of their romance was when Kroeger mentioned their early beginnings in an interview with HELLO! At the time, Kroeger said, “I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I’ll never forget.” Of their relationship, Lavigne has admitted its the Nickelback front man’s sense of humor that really does it for her, stating, “He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive.”
