Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) —  It’s a music romance shocker: Avril Lavigne is engaged to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, her rep confirms to ABC News Radio.

People magazine reports Chad proposed on August 8.

Didn’t know Avril and Chad were in a relationship? You’re far from the only one. People magazine says Avril, 27, and Chad, 37, had been dating in secret for six months.

The Canadian musicians collaborated in February on a song for Avril’s upcoming album and, according to a People source, “A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together.”

Avril was previously married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley. They split in 2009. More recently, she was in a long-term relationship with reality TV star Brody Jenner.
