Nickelback's Chad Kroeger says engagement to Avril Lavigne was a shock to mother

Nickelback mainman Chad Kroeger has revealed that he got engaged to Avril Lavigne before his mother had even met her.

The Canadian pair turned heads recently by announcing they were engaged after being in a largely secret relationship for only six months.

Kroeger told Hello! Canada that his mum hadn't even met Lavigne before being told that her son was going to marry her. He said:

"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! 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."

The singer and guitarist added that the response to the news has been on the whole very positive, adding:

"Everyone is super stoked for us. The reaction from our friends and family has been awesome!"
