CHAD OPENS UP ABOUT ENGAGEMENT

Chad Kroeger Opens Up About Engagement to Avril Lavigne

It's been three weeks since Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger wowed the world with the happy news of their surprise engagement. But one person who isn't paying attention to everyone else's reaction is the Nickelback rocker himself.

"I try not to take too much interest in the world's opinion of our relationship," Kroeger, 37, tells PEOPLE. "I just know the both of us are very happy."

Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger met earlier this year while collaborating on music for her forthcoming album. Their professional relationship took a turn this summer when they started dating on July 1 - which happens to be a special day for both Canadian megastars.

"We think it's very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day," Kroeger says. "We can't wait to start our life together."

Before they walk down the aisle, Kroeger, whose band has sold more than 50 million records, will hit the road this month for a European tour with Daughtry. And he's hoping to have his bride-to-be by his side for some of those dates.

"She'll come over and spend some time [with me] when she's got time," says Kroeger, who adds that they're working on balancing their music careers with impending married life. "They're going to throw a lot of stuff on her plate with the new record."

Wait, so Avril and Chad got engaged ONLY 1 MONTH (he proposed on Aug. 8) after officially starting to date? I thought they were 'quietly dating' for 6 months (since February)? This seems a little strange to me, but if they are happy, I'm not going to judge!

KYLIE JENNER WALKING IN AD FASHION SHOW AGAIN

Avril Lavigne Returning to Fashion Week with Kylie Jenner

No awkwardness here! Though she split from Brody Jenner - and recently became engaged to Chad Kroeger - Avril Lavigne has invited Brody’s step-sis Kylie Jenner to return to the catwalk in her Abbey Dawn fashion show at New York Fashion Week next month. (It’s complicated, we know.) The teen model made a splash when she hit the runway (and brought lots of her siblings) during last year’s show.

Lavigne confirmed the news to PEOPLE this week at the MAGIC fashion trade show in Las Vegas, where she was presenting the latest from her line.

“This is where the buyers are,” she explained. “It’s business, but I’m excited to be here. After seeing everything on paper, everything is finally here. I’m trying to function, but it feels like we’re in a candy store.”

The four-year-old line “is a lot better,” than when it launched in 2008, the singer said. “When I started, it was a cheaper price point and geared toward a younger audience.” Now, “it’s a little hipper, good quality. It appeals to everyone. It’s really great.”

Admitting that she loves dressing her mom and sister - “I do their hair, too,” she shared - Lavigne said she most enjoys dressing up her guy friends. Chad, you’ve been warned!




DETAILS ON AVRIL'S RING


All the Details on Avril Lavigne’s 14-carat Engagement Ring

When it comes to Avril Lavigne‘s engagement ring, it’s not so complicated - it’s huge!

Her new fiance, Nickelback singer/guitarist Chad Kroeger, 37, chose a stunning sparkler for his Aug. 8 proposal.

“We helped Chad custom create Avril’s dream ring: a platinum-set pear-shape diamond with half moons totaling 14 carats from XIVKARATS in Beverly Hills,” designer Caryn Alpert tells PEOPLE exclusively. “What a perfect pair/pear!”

The bride-to-be, 27, “is glowing,” a family source tells PEOPLE. Adds a friend: “Just looking at them, you can see how much he adores her.”

So Avril's friend Caryn is the designer?




AVRIL AND CHAD CELEBRATE IN LAS VEGAS

Exclusive: Avril Lavigne and Nickelback Frontman Chad Kroeger Celebrate Engagement in Las Vegas!

How does a newly engaged couple celebrate? By partying in Las Vegas, of course!

Life & Style can reveal that Avril Lavigne, 27, and her fiance, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, 37, wasted no time in toasting their happy news.

"They went to 1 Oak Nightclub in Las Vegas on Aug. 21 to celebrate their engagement," an eyewitness tells Life & Style. "Avril arrived first with a bunch of male friends and bodyguards, then Chad showed up later and met them inside. Avril was so excited to see her man."

"They were super cuddly and affectionate," the eyewitness adds. "They drank Dom Perignon and Grey Goose."

After splitting with longtime beau Brody Jenner in January, Avril began secretly seeing Chad in February. Six months later, Chad reportedly popped the question with a 14-carat-diamond ring!

This will be the second marriage for the songstress and the first for the rocker. Avril previously wed Sum 41's Deryck Whibley in 2006 and filed for divorce from him three years later. Chad dated former hair salon owner Marianne Gurick from 2002 to 2009. Though never married, they had a common-law partnership.

AVRIL AND CHAD KROEGER ARE ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED!


WHOA! Now we know what Avril has been busy doing during her time off!

People magazine has exclusively reported:

Avril Lavigne Engaged to Nickelback's Chad Kroeger

Whoa, Canada!

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.

For an exclusive engagement photo plus more on Lavigne's stunning ring, check out this week's issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

If this news shocks you, you are not alone! I wouldn't have believed it if it wasn't tweeted officially. I am extremely happy for the two, but it's amazing how we never even knew that they were officially dating! They did a great job keeping their private lives, private! CONGRATS YOU TWO!
