Avril Lavigne is getting married to Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger! Chad and Avril began working together earlier this year to write songs for Avril's upcoming fifth album. Their studio relationship quickly became romantic and they managed to keep it quiet — until now! After only six months of dating Chad popped the question on August 8 with a whopping 14-carat diamond ring!

This will be Avril's second marriage after parting ways from Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley in 2009 and Chad's first. Most recently, Avril dated Brody Jenner (she was Brody's date to his stepsister Kim Kardashian's wedding last October) for two years until they split in January.

What do you think of Avril's surprise engagement?
