Avril Lavigne is hearing wedding bells again! Her rep told People that the 27-year-old singer is engaged to her boyfriend of six months, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.

This will be Lavigne's second marriage and Kroeger's first. Lavigne was previously married to Sum 41 frontman and guitarist Deryck Whibley. She filed for divorce in 2009 after three years of marriage.

Lavigne was most recently linked to "The Hills" star Brody Jenner, son of Olympian Bruce Jenner and ex-wife Linda Thompson. Lavigne and Jenner dated for nearly two years before breaking up earlier this year. (As the news of her engagement was spreading, he was celebrating his 29th birthday. Oof.)

According to People, 37-year-old Kroeger proposed with a 14-carat diamond ring on Aug. 8. "He makes her so happy," a family source told the magazine. "Both of their families could not be more excited."

And it appears his bandmates are happy about the news too. "Congratulations Avril and Chad!" the group tweeted Tuesday evening.
