Not many even knew they were dating, but last night a representative for Avril Lavigne confirmed that she and Nickelback's lead vocalist Chad Kroeger are engaged to be married. Between the two of them they have sold over 34 million albums in the US and hit the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 11 times. They are among the most successful Canadian pop musicians of all time. Reportedly, the relationship developed while they were writing songs together for Avril Lavigne's upcoming album. 27 year old Avril Lavigne divorced Sum 41's Deryck Whibley in 2010. This will be her second marriage. 37 year old Chad Kroeger has never been married.
