The couple grace the September 10 cover of Hello! Canada magazine and the 37-year-old 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."

"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 . . .' But I know she is dying to take me to La Pizzeria to try her favorite pizza in the world!"
