Congratulations are in order for Avril Lavigne, who has just got engaged. The pop-punk princess has just said 'yes' to Mod Sun, with Avril telling People: 'It was the most perfect, romantic proposal I could ever ask for. We were in Paris on a boat in the Seine River. We had a violin player, champagne and roses. It felt like time stood still, and it was just the two of us in the moment.' Aw!

It's the third time Avril has been engaged, as she has previously been married to Sum 41 singer, Deryck Whibley, and to Nickelback singer, Chad Kroeger. Here's everything you need to know about her new man, and how long they've been dating...
