Sometimes late-night jokes and future SNL skits just write themselves – Canadian punk rock songstress Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger have announced that they're engaged after dating for six months.

According to The Canadian Press, a spokesperson for Lavigne confirmed a "People" magazine report that the two are preparing to wed. Kroeger apparently slipped a 14-karat pear-shaped diamond ring on Lavinge's finger on August 8th. The two have kept it under wraps since then.

“I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I'll never forget,” Kroeger told "HELLO! Canada" magazine for an exclusive interview. Lavigne also added, “He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive.”
“We are beyond thrilled that Avril and Chad turned to 'HELLO! Canada' to tell their love story to the world,“ said Editor-in-Chief Alison Eastwood. “They have incredible chemistry and a strong bond due to their mutual careers in music. I’m sure all Canadians wish them all the best.”

The couple collaborated in France on Lavigne's fifth studio album, which has yet to be named or released (but is rumoured to be coming out before the end of 2012). The world exclusive interview with the couple, as well as pics of Lavigne's ring, will be coming out in an upcoming issue of "HELLO! Canada."

Lets just hope there are no duets in this couple's future.
