Fans of Avril Lavigne will be thrilled to see the "Hello Kitty" songstress back in the studio working on new music. In a recent Instagram post, Avril thanks her husband Chad Kroeger for helping her record, sealing her appreciation with a kiss. “Finished singing for the day. Thanks hubby for recording me,” she says.
It’s been a trying year for the Napanee, Ontario native, who went public in April with news that she had been battling Lyme disease. After months of extreme fatigue and pain, Avril was finally diagnosed with the debilitating illness. “I could barely eat. I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move,” she told People magazine. “I thought I was dying.”
Now on the mend, the 30-year-old singer returned from a recent vacation in Miami to concentrate on her number-one passion - music. Earlier this year, she recorded the inspiring song “Fly” in honour of the Special Olympics World Games, one of many organizations she supports through The Avril Lavigne Foundation. ‘Fly’ is about, “inner strength and courage,” Avril said in an interview on Good Morning America. “This song took on a whole new meaning for me during the time that I’ve been sick, which was pretty magical.”
Avril and Chad shared pictures from their July 2013 nuptials exclusively in Hello.
On Canada Day (July 1), Avril will take a break from the studio to celebrate hers and Chad’s second wedding anniversary. In 2013, the Canadian couple said ‘I Do’ in a lavish gothic-themed ceremony in a Chateau near Cannes. Following the romantic nuptials, the Nickelback frontman exclusively told Hello! Canada that when he saw his bride, "I had goosebumps from head to toe and my eyes filled with tears. It's a moment I will never forget as long as I live.” Avril revealed that she felt the same way as her new husband, sharing, “My body was overtaken by emotion. I saw him and he was so calm and happy. He had a tear coming down and he wiped it away. I felt so good walking to him. It made me feel like a complete woman."
