Hayley Williams is getting hitched.
The Paramore singer said “yes” when her longtime boyfriend, New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert, got down on one knee and proposed on Christmas.
Williams shared the good news with her Twitter followers. She posted a photoshopped snap of the happy couple as they might look on their wedding day, along with caption, “Hey guess what?”

Gilbert made sure the news went wide with a message from his Instagram account. “Popped the question on Christmas Day!”
In an interview with Fuse in September to discuss the band’s eighth studio album Resurrection, Gilbert revealed how making music actually strengthened their partnership. “Personally, Hayley and I, we’d been dating for six years, and we hit a rough patch in our relationship, and it was great, being able to get that out in these songs,” the guitarist said. “It made things better for us, you know what I’m saying? There was so much going on at this time that you can dig deep into the record. That’s another thing, what the songs of Resurrection are about: Looking at the challenges not as negative things but to really take them in a way that tests your value as a person.”
Hayley, who recently accepted the 2014 Billboard Women in Music honor for Trailblazer of the Year, has yet to announce her wedding date.
