After much speculation, it looks like pop star Avril Lavigne and her boyfriend of more than two years, Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley, are going to tie the knot.

Though the self-described "tough chick and hopeless romantic" once denied there was anything more than friendship between herself and her longtime pal, Us magazine has confirmed Deryck proposed last weekend as his 20-year-old girlfriend was wrapping up her European tour.

It may come as a surprise that the punk pop princess, who has gained a party girl image over the past few months, is settling down. However, Avril recently explained that appearances may be deceiving. ďIím on a vegan diet, I do yoga every day, I work out, Iím totally spiritual," she said. "Iím completely opposite of what everyone thinks I am."
