Nickelback's Chad Kroeger has claimed he is "the luckiest person alive" after announcing his engagement to Avril Lavigne.

Earlier this week (August 22), a spokeswoman for the couple, who have been dating for six months, confirmed the pair plan to marry and got engaged earlier this month. They met in February when they co-wrote a song for Lavigne's fifth studio album.

Speaking about their relationship in the Canadian version of Hello! magazine, Kroeger said:

I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I'll never forget... I feel like the luckiest person alive because I get to be with my best friend every day!


Lavigne was equally enthusiastic about their forthcoming nuptials, revealing: "He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive."

Lavigne was previously married to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley, but they split after three years of marriage in 2009. She went on to date American TV star Brody Jenner, who is Kim Kardashian's stepbrother, but they broke up at the beginning of 2012.

Kroeger, who is 10 years Lavigne's senior, has never been married before.
