In the biggest news Canada has had all year...okay, maybe ever, it seems Canadian Chad Kroeger of Nickelback has asked Canadian Avril Lavigne to marry him! Not only did he pop the question according to People Magazine, he presented her with a 14-CARAT FREAKING MONSTER RING! Just so you know, that's about 15mm in size, or over half an inch! Jesus, you could choke a monkey with that thing.

Apparently Chad works pretty fast, since he was with someone else until probably about six months ago when he started bangi---I mean, dating Avril. They got together when he was "called in" to co-write a song for her next record.

No matter how you feel about the guy, he can write hit songs. And they work too, look at who they got him in bed with!

“A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together.”

“He makes her so happy. Both of their families could not be more excited.”

Their children are going to be really, really blonde.

Maybe he can help her with her spelling on the new album, so we don't get "Sk8er Boi 2".
