Hayley Williams and Chad Gilbert

Hayley Williams and Chad Gilbert have got engaged.

The New Found Glory guitarist popped the question to the Paramore frontwoman - who he started dating in 2008 - on Christmas Day (25.12.14) and the flame-haired beauty took to her Twitter account to share the news with her fans by posting a picture of their heads super-imposed on the bodies of a couple on their wedding day.

She added the caption: "Hey guess what?"

Chad - who married Indie rocker Sherri DuPree in February 2007, but divorced her later that year - also posted the same picture and revealed further details about his proposal, writing: "Popped the question on Christmas Day! #micdrop (sic)"

Hayley was inundated with messages from her followers and fellow singer Taylor Swift was one of the first stars to congratulate the couple on their happy news.

In a message featuring several heart emojis, she wrote: "CONGRATULATIONS YOU CRAZY KIDS!!!! (sic)"

Katy Perry was also delighted for the pair, tweeting: "YAS! Now this is truly punk rock! CONGRATS! (sic)"

Following the flurry of congratulatory messages Hayley admitted she couldn't wait for 2015.

She wrote: "Can't even keep up w/ the sweet texts, emails, tweets. Thx so much yall! We're so psyched! See yall in 2015 (sic)"
