The pair announced their plans to marry in August 2012, having enjoyed a whirlwind romance after meeting early in 2012. Kroeger, famous for his worldwide hit 'How You Remind Me' has told how difficult it was telling his mother about his plans - as she is such a fan of the 'Sk8er Boi' singer.
"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.
