Stop the presses. Your favorite (only?) Sk8r Gurl is engaged. Avril Lavigne, who was last tied to Brody Jenner of The Hills and Kardashian fame, kept her boyfriend on the down-low until he became her fiance. Her surprise Intended? Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger.

Avril Lavigne Engaged & On the Cover of Hello!

Avril Lavigne’s Engagement Ring
The 14.01ct stunner from XIV Karats Beverly Hills looks like a pear shaped center stone with another pair of large diamond flanking it. The ring is gorgeous.

We do too!
