A rep for Lavigne told People on Aug. 20 that the Nickelback frontman had popped the question. The couple got close after collaborating on a song for her upcoming album, and they started dating in February (shortly after Lavigne split from Brody Jenner).

"It was one of those unbelievable experiences. Coming out the other side, you look at this little baby boy you have made, and it's the depth of your love together that is amazing." It will be the first marriage for Stone and Price's second -- in 2007 she ended a three-year marriage with producer Shawn Piller.
It seems Zach Galifianakis is adding to his wolf pack. According to Celebuzz, the Hangover star is engaged to his girlfriend, charity director Quinn Lundberg. The two are reportedly set to exchange vows on Saturday, Aug. 11. A source tells Celebuzz of the invitation: "While it has the formal and standard details of who, what, when, where -- including Zach’s full name Zachary Knight Galifianakis and his fiancée’s, Mary Quinn Lundberg -- it is also very funny. Zach included a drawing of himself and his bride-to-be. He made sure he looked like a little troll, while Quinn is a stunning tall blonde princess." The comedian and his bride-to-be are asking guests to donate to the non-profit she co-founded, Growing Voices, which provides support for victims of domestic violence in North Carolina (Galifianakis' home state).

Most recently, Berry was linked to model Gabriel Aubry, with whom she has 3-year-old daughter Nahla.

Drew Barrymore is ready for her happy ending! The actress is reportedly engaged to art consultant Will Kopelman, and sources told People on Jan. 5 that "they are very happy together."

This will be the third wedding for Barrymore, who was married to Tom Green from 1999 to 2001 and to Jeremy Thomas briefly in 1994.
