Chad Kroeger is setting high expectations. On Thursday, his wife, Avril Lavigne, took to Twitter to show off the giant sparkler he surprised her with on their wedding anniversary. "I still can't believe my 1 year anniversary gift. 17 carat emerald cut. Wow. I love my hubby," she wrote. In the sweet snap, Avril is sitting on Chad's lap and cozying up to his stubble. Naturally, the ring is front and center.
Last July, Avril and Chad tied the knot in a lavish wedding, during which the nontraditional bride donned a black dress. The newlywed has since relaunched her music career, promoting her fifth studio album, Avril Lavigne. The set has spawned a few singles and music videos, including her latest viral clip, the colorful and controversial "Hello Kitty."
