Chad Kroeger 'embarrassed' by engagement

Los Angeles - Chad Kroeger was "embarrassed" when he told his parents he was engaged to Avril Lavigne.

The Nickleback frontman, who proposed to the singer after a whirlwind romance, has not yet introduced his mother to his future wife, and became red-faced when he had to explain they were getting married because his mom is a big fan of her music.

"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 speakerphone and telling her the news was hilarious and equally embarrassing," Chad said.


Avril has yet to even take Chad to her hometown, but he knows where she will take him when he does make it there.

He added that by going back home is just as terrifying as telling your parents that you are getting married. "You just never know when someone is going to come out of the woodwork with a story that's starts with, 'Let me tell you about the time...'

"But I know she is dying to take me to La Pizzeria to try her favourite pizza in the world," Chad said.

In a recent interview, Avril said that Chad makes her laugh constantly and is impressed by how much he meets her needs. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
