The announcement comes on the birthday of Avril’s very recent ex-boyfriend, Brody Jenner.
The Canadian couple’s romance blossomed during the time they spent co-writing tracks for Avril’s upcoming album. The duo appear to have confirmed the news themselves on Twitter, with Chad’s band Nickelback tweeting: ‘Congratulations Avril and Chad! Get all the details from @PeopleMag’.
Chad, 37, apparently popped the question on 8th August, with a 14-carat diamond engagement ring.
Even though she is the younger of the two at 27, this will actually be Avril’s second marriage. In 2006, she wed Sum 41 rocker Deryck Whibley in a fairytale style wedding. Sadly, it was not to be and the couple filed for divorce three years later.
She then moved on to Kim Kardashian’s stepbrother Brody – even getting a tattoo of his name – before they split in January after nearly two years together.
Meanwhile, Chad spent six years with wife Marianne Goriuk.
