Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger's relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne's rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album.
"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE.
On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler.
"He makes her so happy," a family source tells PEOPLE. "Both of their families could not be more excited."
It will be Kroeger's first trip down the aisle, and the second marriage for Lavigne, who split from Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2009. She had also dated Brody Jenner.
Avril and Brody broke up in january
It appears Avril Lavigne and Brody Jenner have said goodbye to their relationship.
A source confirms to E! News that the rocker and Jenner have split, after dating for almost two years.
While details of the breakup are being kept under wraps, we're kinda wondering what they're going to do about their matching tattoos (they inked each other's names on their bodies shortly after they began dating).
Jenner, whose romance with Lavigne began in early 2010, showed off a tattoo of the "Wish You Were Here" singer's name on his arm in July of that year. Lavigne debuted her matching tattoo of Jenner's name on her torso the same month while they were both on the beach in Malibu.
