Avril Lavigne has become engaged to singer Mod Sun after dating for one year.
The 35-year-old musician confirmed the news on Instagram on Thursday after his 37-year-old lady love was seen flashing a very large diamond ring on her wedding finger in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Mod Sun shared the collection of images from the proposal in Paris. One showed him down on one knee in front of Avril and another revealed her diamond engagement ring is heart shaped.
The Minnesota native also added a gushy note for his future wife that said he fell for her the day they met.
Be my wife: Avril Lavigne has become engaged to singer Mod Sun. The 35-year-old musician confirmed the news on Instagram on Thursday after she was seen flashing a very large diamond ring on her wedding finger on Tuesday
The engagement took place on March 27.
‘The day we met I knew you were the one,’ began the star, whose real name is Derek Ryan Smith. ‘Together forever til our days are done.
‘I had a dream where I proposed in Paris. I pulled out a ring + asked you to wear it. I was on one knee as I looked in your eyes. You’re too beautiful for my words to describe. I grabbed your hand + took one last breath… I said “will you marry me?” + she said “yes.”‘
She wore all black with her orange-dipped blonde hair over her shoulders while looking down on Mod Sun, who was on one knee. Behind them was the Eiffel Tower in Paris as they on a boat on the Seine River. He wore a black leather jacket with matching slacks.

It’s a heart! And in this photo she revealed that the diamond is heart shaped. According to People, the ring is from XIV Karats in Beverly Hills; Mod Sun was also showing off the Avril tattoo behind his neck
‘It was the most perfect, romantic proposal I could ever ask for,’ Avril told People on Thursday.
And then she described the romantic scene.
‘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.’
Avril also described the ring he had custom made at Beverly Hills jewelry store XIV Karats.
‘It has the words “Hi Icon” engraved in it, which were the first words he ever said to me,’ she explained. ‘And it has Mod + Avril on the inside.
‘He knew from the very beginning I wanted a heart shaped diamond because on the day we met, we had matching heart shaped paved rings on. We’ve worn them every day since, so its only fitting to have a heart-shaped engagement ring. I love it so much.’

What says love better than flowers: A dozen long stemmed red roses were also seen
Avril was first seen with the ring on when she headed to a music studio in Los Angeles with her entourage on Tuesday.
The 37-year-old Sk8ter Boi singer has been dating Mod Sun for the past year. They met when working on the song Flames, which debuted in February 2021. He has also worked on her latest album Love Sux.
And he became so serious about the crooner that he had her name tattooed on his neck only months after meeting.
Lavigne has been wed twice before: to Deryck Whibley from 2006 until 2010 and to Chad Kroeger from 2013 to 2015.
This will be a first marriage for Mod Sun. In 2019 he and Bella Thorne hinted they had a secret wedding, but it was not official.

Avril was not wearing the large diamond as she attended the Grammys over the weekend with Mod.
The power couple put on a loved-up display as they kissed while posing for photographers.

Avril opened up about her relationship while speaking with E! News’ Laverne Cox on the red carpet, saying that before she started dating Mod she was ‘over’ relationships.
‘I was, like, over it. I was like, “I need a break from relationships, I’m gonna check out.” That didn’t last very long, a couple days then I got myself a boyfriend,’ she revealed.
The singer continued, ‘I was like, “I need my independence back, I need a hot minute.” And then, like, two days later I fell in love. That’s how it goes for me.’
New tunes: Lavigne’s new album Love Sux featuring Bite Me, Love It When You Hate Me and Bois Lie came out in February
