Mod Sun, 35, took to social media to share his excitement about the significant milestone in their relationship.
“The day we met I knew you were the one. Together forever til our days are done. I had a dream that I proposed to my husband in Paris. I pulled out my ring and asked you to put it on. I was on one knee as I looked in your eyes,” he wrote in his own social media upload. “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”. I love you Avril ❤️.”

“I actually sent her ‘Flames,’ I want to say maybe two months ago at the most. That’s how this all happened, was that quickly,” he told MetroIn February 2021. “I sent it to her and she was like ‘Wow, I really love this song.’ and I didn’t have the guts immediately to be like ‘So, you wanna sing on it?’”
The rapper recalled having to “build up” the courage to ask Lavigne to work with him. “I finally got the guts to ask her, and I was like ‘Yo, there’s no one else on my album — I want so badly for you to be on my album as the only person that appears besides myself on it, and you said you really liked that ‘Flames’ song.’”
The Canada native boasted earlier this year about her time with her boyfriend to help her make her album. “I mean, he’s a really incredible songwriter and, like, [when] we met, I loved his song ‘Karma.’ I was like, ‘Who did you write this with and who produced it?’” she exclusively told Us Weekly last month. “He really complimented, like, a lot of my ideas and really understood [my vision].”

“Even though the album’s called Love Sux, it’s kind of just, like, all about the crazy things that it puts us through, but it’s very lighthearted and there’s a sense of humor that goes through it,” she added. “Kind of just, like, having fun with all the stuff that we go through [because] it’s just inevitable. I’ve learned to laugh at all the ridiculous things that love does to us. It’s very tongue in cheek.”
