May I present to you… the First Gentleman and First Lady of Canada! Yes, Canadian Sweethearts Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger allegedly got married this weekend in France, although People Mag is saying the initial reports of the wedding are false. I do know they’re in France right now, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they had gotten married or were about to. I don’t know why they didn’t get married in Canada. Surely it would have been treated as a national holiday in Canada? I jest! I do not blame Canadians for Chad and Avril (although I do blame Canada for Justin Bieber, so go figure). Chad and Avril got together…? I want to say it’s been about a year and a half. They got engaged last August. And now they’re married. It’s her second marriage and his first (although he had some kind of common-law thing with an ex-girlfriend and he had to make a settlement with her when they broke up). Here’s more about the (alleged) wedding:
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger just rocked down the aisle in the South of France, a source confirms to E! News.
After getting engaged last August, the 28-year-old pop-punk princess and her 38-year-old Nickleback-singer beau tied the knot in what Lavigne had promised would be a “crazy and colorful” theme-wedding on the continent.
“We want it to be unique and special and we want it to be a very big event but at the same time it’s small and it’s just close friends and close family,” Lavigne told E! News about the Canadian lovebirds’ wedding plans last month at the Billboard Music awards.
“Of course [Chad] has been really involved,” she continued. “He’s also been really cool with just letting me kinda taking the wedding in the direction I want to take it in.”
Kroeger, for his part, wisely deferred to his ladylove. “I sit back and I take a lot of the things that are presented to me, and I look at them on paper, and when I’m asked my opinion, I offer it very gently. That’s the smartest thing I can possibly do because that big day is not about me. That big day is about her.”
You can see some photos here of Avril in the South of France – the Mail is acting like the photos are from just before the wedding, but I think they might be from the rehearsal dinner or something. She’s wearing a little green dress and UGGS. And a crown. So… maybe that’s what she wore to her wedding? God knows. Anyway, congrats to Chad and Avril. This should be a glorious mess when it falls apart, but I’m thinking Avril and Chad will keep it together long enough to have at least one baby, don’t you think?
