Hayley Williams is engaged to Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory! The couple announced their recent engagement on New Year’s Eve, sharing the adorable and hilarious photoshopped bride-groom “getting married” photo seen below.

“Popped the question on Christmas Day! #midcrop,” Gilbert revealed on Instagram alongside the snapshot. Williams tweeted the pic, too, writing, “Hey guess what?” The Paramore front woman has been dating the pop-punk rocker for more than six years. The relationship inspired Paramore’s hit song “Still Into You.”

Congratulations from the couple’s famous friends are pouring in on social media. Taylor Swift tweeted, “CONGRATULATIONS YOU CRAZY KIDS!!!!” with a bunch of heart emoticons. Katy Perry declared, “YAS! Now this is truly punk rock! CONGRATS!” And Pete Wentz wrote, “congrats guys !!!” with thumbs up emojis.

Williams retweeted one fan’s message that amusingly read, “I’m like 104% sure that Hayley’s gonna spend more time picking what colour to dye her hair for her wedding than picking her wedding dress.” And the couple’s dog “wrote,” “My mom & dad are getting married y’all. So so so so happy!!! Congrats @XChadballX and @yelyahwilliams!!”

In response to all the well-wishes, Williams tweeted, “Can’t even keep up w/ the sweet texts, emails, tweets. Thx so much yall! We’re so psyched! See yall in 2015.” It’s not yet known if the pair plan to tie the knot this year, but 2015 will be big for the singer regardless, as she and Paramore are nominated for Best Rock Song at the upcoming Grammys.

Check out Williams and Gilbert’s engagement photo below. Congrats to the couple!
