Chad Kroeger’s Parents Hadn’t Met Avril Before Hearing of Engagement in “Embarrassing,” “Hilarious” Phone Call

Hey, Mom and Dad, I met this really cool girl and we're engaged! Maybe you've heard of her...?

Nickelback's Chad Kroeger told Hello! Canada (via his parents hadn't met singer Avril Lavigne before their surprise engagement.

"You never know what your parents are going to say when you tell them you're getting married -- especially when it's with someone they haven't met yet!" Chad said. "My mom is a huge fan of Avril's, so putting her on the speaker phone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing."

They both have a lot of catching up to do, which is what happens when you have such a whirlwind romance. Chad admitted he’s worried about visiting Avril's hometown. "I find that almost as terrifying as telling your parents you're going to tie the knot," he told the magazine. "You just never know when someone is going to come out of the woodwork with a story that starts off with, 'Let me tell you about the time...’”

If they just listen to each other’s songs they’ll get a pretty good idea of what’s in the woodwork. For her part, Avril said, "Everyone is super stoked for us. The reaction from our friends and family has been awesome!"

Are you also "super stoked" for the newly engaged couple?
