Singer Avril Lavigne has gotten engaged to Chad Kroeger, the lead singer of the band Nickleback, after dating him for six months.

Lavigne seems to be a hopeless romantic, as the singer is going to tie the knot for the second time. Reports have emerged that the songstress and Nickleback's lead singer are now engaged. Lavigne is 27, whereas Kroeger is 37. And even though Lavigne is 10 years younger than Kroeger, she is the one who has been married before.

According to reports, the celebrities have been dating for the past six months, but this relationship was kept hidden from the public's eyes. Speculations regarding their courtship first surfaced when both of them went to Paris together in May, but since they were not spotted a lot together, these rumors did not circulate so much.

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger started dating in February, when Chad was taken onboard to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming, fifth studio album. Both celebrities spent a lot of time together writing the song and that was when love blossomed between them. Then at last, Kroeger popped the question to Lavigne on August 8, and she said yes.

Kroeger proposed with a 14-carat diamond ring, but further details regarding the engagement are not available.

"He makes her so happy," a family source revealed to People Magazine. "Both of their families could not be more excited."

So far, a date for the marriage ceremony has not been mentioned and questions regarding the plans have gone unanswered from both the sides.

It was Chad Kroeger who first went public with the engagement as he tweeted about the news, “Congratulations Avril and Chad! Get all the details from @PeopleMag'. After a short while Avril Lavigne also retweeted the same message several times and also retweeted some of the congratulatory messages sent by her friends and family.

Avril Lavigne was previously married to Sum 41's rocker, Deryck Whibley. They married in 2006, but divorced three years later. Then from March 2010 to January 2012, Lavigne dated Brody Jenner. Chad Kroeger, on the other hand, dated a former hair salon owner named Marianne Gurick from 2002 to 2009.
