Avril Lavigne Gets Engaged to Mod Sun in Paris: ‘The Day We Met I Knew You Were the One’
Mod Sun and Avril Lavigne started dating while working on her breakup album, Love Sux.
He was a guy, and she was a female, and now they’re getting married!
Avril Lavigne and fellow pop-punk musician Mod Sun were engaged on March 27 in Paris, according to the couple’s Instagram post on Thursday.
“It was the most beautiful, romantic proposal I’d ever received. We were aboard a boat in the Seine River in Paris. There was a violinist, champagne, and roses. It was as if time had stopped and there was only the two of us in the room “Lavigne, 37.
Mod, 35, proposed with a custom-designed heart-shaped ring from XIV Karats in Beverly Hills, set in a royal setting with smaller hearts.
“It’s etched with the words ‘Hi Icon,’ which were the first words he ever said to me. On the inside, it has Mod + Avril “According to Lavigne. “He knew I wanted a heart-shaped diamond from the start because we wore matching heart-shaped paved rings on the day we met. We’ve been wearing them every day since, so having a heart-shaped engagement ring is only natural. I’m completely enamored with it.”
While Lavigne claims the proposal came as a “complete surprise,” she knew he was the one from the moment they met.
“From the first week of writing and working together in the studio, I realized we had an unbreakable bond. Right away, “”I met Mod while working on my current album, Love Sux,” explains Lavigne, who met Mod while working on her latest album, Love Sux. “He made every day a little bit better. It was as though I had known him for a long time. Things continued to improve with time, and it felt completely natural.”
The pop-punk power couple is now eager to start planning their future together.
“I’m looking forward to having a good time, creating, working with you, touring with you, and growing together,” Lavigne says. “It’s nice to have someone to help you enjoy the good times, support you through the bad times, and be there for everything in between.”
“I knew you were the one the moment we met. We’ll be together until the end of our days. In my dream, I proposed to my girlfriend in Paris. I took out a ring and instructed you to put it on. As I stared into your eyes, I was on one knee. You’re too lovely for me to put into words. I took a deep breath and grasped your hand… “Will you marry me?” I asked, and she replied yes.” A series of engagement images were annotated by Mod Sun. “I adore you, Avril.”
The pop-punk princess recently spoke up to PEOPLE about their relationship’s beginnings, revealing that she wasn’t searching for love when Mod Sun (real name Dylan Smith) came along.
She explained, “I was thinking, ‘I need a break from men.'” “Then everything went out the window two days later!”
After meeting at a songwriting session, the two began dating “immediately,” according to Lavigne, who said she “simply followed [her] heart.”
“I was getting out of a significant relationship, and I realized for the first time in my life that I should probably be single,” she explained. “I collaborated with [Mod Sun] on a song. We had an instant connection. ‘Should you be doing this?’ I wondered. It was exhilarating and entertaining, so I said, “F—- it.” ‘Life is too brief.’ My zodiac sign is Libra. I adore the word “love.”
In February 2021, the Grammy-nominated artist ignited dating rumors with Mod Sun, and the two made their red carpet debut together at the MTV Video Music Awards in September.
Mod’s 2021 song “Flames” included Lavigne, and he co-wrote and co-produced numerous tracks on her most recent album, Love Sux, which was released in February.
“From the first day in the studio, [we] had an instant connection,” she told PEOPLE in April 2021. “He’s a phenomenal musician and producer.”
They kissed on the red carpet at the 64th Grammy Awards, where Lavigne was a presenter, and they’ve also been seen out on double dates with Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox.
Mod wrote a romantic Instagram post calling her “the love of my life” in honor of her birthday in September.
“Happy birthday to my angel, my soulmate, my love of my life, and my favorite person on the planet. In so many ways, you have fulfilled my aspirations as the most radiant and exquisite woman I’ve ever seen “‘He captioned the image,’ he said. “You are my oasis of peace in the midst of mayhem, as well as my safe haven from the storm. You’re a combination of elegance and rock ‘n’ roll in one body.”
“I was born without you, and I’ll never forget how desperate I was to discover you.
@avrillavigne+ I love you with all my heart, and the best is yet to come. Greetings, my little icon, on your birthday! “He went on to say more.
This will be Lavigne’s third marriage; she divorced Nickelback guitarist Chad Kroeger in 2015 after two years of marriage. From 2006 to 2009, she was married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley.
