Avril Lavigne announced her engagement to Mod Sun in an Instagram post, revealing that he popped the big question in Paris just outside the Eiffel Tower.
The 37-year-old pop singer shared a photo reel from their special moment, featuring a black and white photo of the musician down on one knee. She wrote, “Oui! Je t’aime pour toujours,” which translates to “I love you always.” “Dimanche. 27. Mars. 2022.”
Mod Sun, born Derek Ryan Smith, also posted the same photo on his Instagram, sharing a sweet poem he wrote for his bride-to-be. “The day we met I knew you were the one. 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.'”
The two musicians first struck up their relationship when they released “Flames,” a single appearing on Mod Sun’s album "Internet Killed the Rockstar", after Machine Gun Kelly introduced them.
