Diamonds are forever and are definitely a girl’s best friend, right? Avril Lavigne’s husband, Chad Kroeger, is certainly incorporating both of those sayings into their one-year anniversary celebration. According to, the Nickelback singer gifted his wife with quite a rock. “I still can’t believe my 1 year anniversary gift,” Lavigne shared on Twitter on Thursday, July 31. “17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby,” she included, alongside her new and shiny ring and beloved hubby. In August 2012, the “Far Away” singer proposed to the pop-rock songstress with almost just as much bling . . . a 14-carat pear-shaped diamond ring. The two married in July 2013, surrounded by 50 guests in the South of France.
