It didn't take long for Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger to fall in love and get married, but the rockers are taking their time when it comes to starting a family. While celebrating the release of her self-titled fifth studio album at Finale in New York City on Tuesday, Nov. 5, the "Here's to Never Growing Up" singer spoke to reporters about their parenthood palns.
"I want one or two [kids], but not right now," said Lavigne, 29. "Like, in the future. Eventually."
"I still need to just have fun!" she added. "I've got a record, a tour. I'm not ready right now. I want to just focus on my music, but down the road, eventually [we'll have children]."
Kroeger wasn't able to attend the event given that his band, Nickelback, is currently on tour in Europe. Despite being on separate continents, the newlyweds are never far from each other's minds. "I had roses sent to me like three days ago at my hotel and he wrote a poem. It was really sweet," Lavigne shared. "I didn't know what to do! I almost cried."
When they're not on the road, Lavigne said she and Kroeger spend the majority of their time at home. "We have a studio at the house, and we cook a lot. I cook everything—breakfast, lunch and dinner! We make music at the house. I paint. I'm very organized," she said. "And we like to exercise and go for walks, visit family and stuff like that."
