Congratulations are in order for Avril Lavigne, who recently got engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger. A spokesperson for Lavigne has confirmed to People magazine that the 27-year-old pop singer and Kroeger, 37, are planning to tie the knot.

According to reports, Chad Kroeger popped the question to Avril Lavigne on August 8 following a six-month romance that was so hush-hush that few knew the duo was dating. The singer reportedly presented Lavigne with a stunning 14-carat diamond engagement ring.

The pair has yet to comment publicly on their relationship, but the “Girlfriend” singer retweeted a message from Nickelback, saying, “Congratulations Avril and Chad! Get all the details from @PeopleMag” to her six million followers online. She also retweeted a string of congratulatory messages from friends and fans.

Adam Levine of Maroon 5 took to Twitter to clarify the announcement. He posted, “Just to clear up the confusion, I am NOT engaged to Chad Kroeger of Nickelback.”

The Canadian rock superstar met Kroeger in February this year while writing a song with him for her upcoming, fifth studio album. A representative for the pop-punk princess told People magazine, “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together.”

“He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited,” the insider added.

This will be the second marriage for Lavigne, who tied the knot with Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 in July 2006 when she was 21-year-old. However, the fairytale marriage couldn’t last for long, as she filed for divorce after three years.

The Ontario-born singer then started dating American reality TV star Brody Jenner, who is Kim Kardashian’s stepbrother, in 2010 and the relationship was quite serious, as Lavigne even got a tattoo of his name under her right breast. But the union came to an end in January. Meanwhile, Kroeger has never been married, but was in a relationship with Marianne Goriuk for six years.

Grammy-nominated songstress Avril Lavigne rose to fame with her 2002 album, Let's Go. She is best-known as the singer of “Complicated” and “I'm With You”. Her last album, Goodbye Lullaby, came out in 2011.

Kroeger has been Nickelback's lead vocalist and guitarist since the band formed in 1995. Nickleback, one of the most popular Canadian bands of all time, is known for their hit, “How You Remind Me”. The band includes Ryan Peake, Mike Kroeger (Chad's brother) and Daniel Adair.
