Finally! Nickelback's Chad Kroeger broke his silence after news of his engagement to Avril Lavigne practically broke the Internet earlier this week. Kroeger told Canada's Hello! Magazine that he feels "like the luckiest person alive because I get to be with my best friend every day!" All together now: Awww. (Or something.)

Kroeger admits that he knew he started to like like Avril earlier this year when they hit the studio together to work on material for Lavigne's upcoming album: "I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I'll never forget." (Maybe she reminds him of what he really is?) As for when they said the "L-word," well, we drew our own conclusions about their romantic timeline.

Avril returned the niceties about Chad, gushing, "He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive." By "extremely attentive," she probably means, "he bought me a $350,000 14-carat diamond engagement ring." 

Congrats again to the happy couple. Next to your maple syrup, Chadvril is your best (?) export yet, Canada.
