Avril Lavigne has announced that she is engaged to fellow pop punk singer Mod Sun.
The 37-year-old Canadian star shared on Instagram that the American rocker popped the question to her on March 27 in Paris during a romantic cruise down the Seine.
She posted a collection of photos and videos from the proposal, which showed Mod Sun, 35, on one knee with the Eiffel Tower in the background, and Lavigne showing off her heart-shaped diamond ring.
She captioned the post: “Oui! Je t’aime pour toujours. Dimanche. 27 Mars. 2022.”
Her new fiancé commented: “I love you so much! Forever and ever my angel.”
Friends and famous faces also congratulated the pair with producer John Feldmann working on their latest collaboration album and Kourtney Kardashian both sharing heart emojis.
Singer Nessa Barrett said “CONGRATS love you guys,” while singer Pixie Lott added heart-eye emojis.
Lavigne and Mod Sun began dating while working together on their recently released breakup album Love Sux.
Mod Sun also shared a series of pictures and videos from the proposal on his Instagram with an emotional note saying he knew early on she was the one.

He wrote: “The day we met I knew you were the one. Together forever until our days are over.
“I had a dream in which I proposed to a couple. I pulled out a ring + asked you to wear it. I was on one knee when I looked into your eyes.
“You are too beautiful for my words to describe. I took your hand + breathed in one last time… I said “Will you marry me?” + she said “yes”. I love you Avril”.
Speaking to People magazine about the special moment, Lavigne said: “It was the most perfect, most romantic proposal I could have ever wished for.
“We were in Paris on a boat on the Seine. We had a violin player, champagne and roses. It felt like time had stood still and at the moment it was just the two of us.”
She also revealed that he knew she wanted a heart-shaped ring as they both wore matching rings in that design on the day they met.
The singer added that the ring also has the word “Hi Icon” engraved on it as those were the first words he said to her, along with their names on the inside of the band.
Lavigne explained that from the first week they began writing and working in the studio together on their latest album, they had a “very strong, unstoppable bond.”
Reflecting on the future, she said, “I’m looking forward to having fun, creating, collaborating, touring together, growing together.
“It feels good to have someone who can help you celebrate the good times, get you through the tough times, and be there for every moment in between.”
