We had no idea they were even dating, but Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger proposed to Avril Lavigne on August 8 and she said yes.

The pair have apparently been together for six months, but kept is so quiet that few knew they were an item. The relationship started when Kroeger was recruited to co-write a song on Lavigne's new album.

"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," one of her friends told People magazine. "He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited."

Perhaps there was a message in Nickelback's latest single, "Trying Not To Love You". A video was posted only two days ago.

Kroeger has never been married, but Lavigne tied the knot with Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2006. Their marriage ended three years later.

In other recent Nickelback news, a fan fell down a 40-foot gorge while trying to sneak into one of their shows. Now that's dedicated.

Congratulations to both Chad and Avril on their engagement!

    Chad has insisted the wedding be boring, generic, and exactly like every other wedding.
    If he wants to make it real boring, he should get 3 doors down to cover Nickleback songs at the reception.
    Nah, get Sum 41 for teh lolz.
    Saying Sum 41 suck is usualy based on ignorance. Anyhoo, she does seem like a wee dirty.
    Dude, sum 41 really suck, they copied every ****ing song, if you don't know this you're the ignorant!
    They've publicly admitted to Battery being inspired by the thrash metal of the 80's, particularly Metallica's. While I do think the song is a very close copy to Battery, the fact that they have done covers of Master of Puppets live does go to prove that they were just inspired by the music they listened to as kids.
    Not battery, ****. Battery is the song they copied. The Bitter End is the one I'm talking about.
    Why? The it would actually be entertaining. The point is to get a band that sucks.
    and sum 41 sucks...
    i don't ****ing think so. Sum 41 is a very talented group who put on a good show and Whibley is an amazing songwriter. They're certainly better than Nickelback. Then again, what rock group isn't?
    Look everyone! She's holding up her middle finger AGAIN. What a punk rocking badass!
    I hope to God they don't breed.
    Especially if you mean "musically breed".
    You never know, putting what minimal musical talent they have together may result in a half decent musical child. That said, It could go the other way and we could have Rebecca Black-esque triplets.
    Avril Lavigne is amazingly talented. You may not like her music, but that doesn't give you the right to discredit her abilities. Hell, I be she could play any instrument she picks up better than you can.
    So first, it was Deryck Whibley, now this guy.. who's next? Axl Rose?
    She's clearly only interested in marrying other Canadians.
    I bet she just can't wait for Bieber to turn 18. But she's hot...almost makes me wanna be canadian.
    Plot twist: someone actually did like Nickelback...
    ....yet there are still people out there who think gay couples are the ones ruining the institution of marriage.
    I don't see how this could ruin the institute of marriage? Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries yes, but Chad and Avril no...
