Avril Lavigne on motherhood: ‘I want to be ready’

She may have only married a few months ago, but Avril Lavigne says she's already feeling the pressure to start a family.

The 29-year-old singer sat down with online show The Lowdown to chat about babies and marriage, revealing she’s in no rush to have kids any time soon.

"I do [feel pressure to start a family] now that I'm married," she said. 

But, she added"I want to be ready. I'm focusing on my music. I'm just releasing a new record. This is my priority and my baby right now." 

She and husband Chad Kroeger began dating last year while working together on Avril’s album, so it comes as no surprise that the music studio is a special place for the Canadian couple.

"He proposed in the studio so it was really romantic," she said. "And when we work together, we're creating and we're in the moment of making something happen, so it's fun."

Avril and Chad were wed in a romantic ceremony on Canada Day of this year. Her fifth studio album is slated for release on November 5.
