Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger of Nickelback are getting engaged. You probably don’t care, but the eighth grader inside of you is probably gushing. That is, unless you’re from Canada, in which case this is like the equivalent to the royal wedding. Via People:
“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.”
