Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger's relationship has been so quiet that few even knew they were dating. Now, after a six-month courtship, the Canadian rockers are engaged to be married, Lavigne's rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, first got together in February to co-write a song for Lavigne's upcoming fifth studio album.
"A romantic relationship blossomed as they spent time writing together," a Lavigne pal tells PEOPLE.
On Aug. 8, Kroeger popped the question, presenting Lavigne with a 14-carat diamond sparkler.

Avril Lavigne had some special support at a party to launch her Abbey Dawn accessories line in L.A.: her ex-husband, Deryck Whibley!
The Sum41 rocker came out to the JustFabulous party at the Viper Room, and even shared a hug with Lavigne, who reportedly split from her boyfriend Brody Jenner in January. Whibley also posed for pictures at the event and congratulated Lavigne on her hard work.
And Lavigne wasn't simply enjoying her party: she performed a set packed with her hits (including "Girlfriend" and "My Happy Ending") for a packed house, which included Taylor Momsen, Mena Suvari and Kimora Lee Simmons, who introduced the rocker before her performance. (The concert was also streamed live on the Internet for fans who couldn't make it.)

Both of them later Tweeted about the incident.
"I got attacked by 5 people last night out of nowhere. Not cool. My face is f––ed," Lavigne wrote. "As in black eye, bloody nose, hair ripped out, scratches, bruises and cuts. So not ok to be abusive to others. Violence is NEVER the answer."
