Avril Lavigne Shows Off The Gaudy New Ring That Hubby Chad Kroeger Gave Her

Tacky Anniversary

In honor of the couple’s 1-year wedding anniversary, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroger gave his wife Avril Lavigne a 17-carat diamond ring that is bigger than the width of the poor girl’s finger. I mean, she’s not really a “poor girl” with that crazy huge diamond on her finger but in terms of style, I’d say she’s pretty poor. Believe me, I get that she loves her husband and she loves the diamond he gave her but LORDE, there is no accounting for taste. Click below to see Avril, Chad and their new diamond baby posing for a happy family photo. More »
