Surprise!

Singer Avril Lavigne has done a pretty fantastic job keeping her relationship with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger a secret, but news of their relationship isn't your ordinary cute couple alert: E! News confirms that this brand-new duo is engaged!

The Canadian rockers, who initially linked up in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album, have been dating for six months, according to People.

"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a friend of Lavigne tells the mag. Another source tells People, "He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited."

Kroeger popped the question on August 8 with a 14-carat diamond. (Yowza!)

This will be Chad's first time swapping vows and Avril's second time walking down the aisle, after wedding Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley in 2006 and then divorcing in 2009. Lavigne's last relationship was an on-again, off-again romance with Brody Jenner.
