Lavigne finding time for baby

Avril Lavigne

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger are trying to schedule time to have a baby.

Avril married the Nickelback rocker this summer and the couple are eager to start a family.

But Chad admits it’s been difficult to squeeze conceiving a child into their hectic schedules.

“We both want it,” Chad told People magazine. “We just need to find a time we’re both home to get around to it!”

Avril is busy promoting her new self-titled album, and Chad’s band is preparing to go on tour in Europe and South Africa.

Work brought the musicians together last year as they fell in love while producing Avril’s latest record.

The 29-year-old singer has gushed about the tight bond they quickly created.

“It was like we’d known each other forever,” Avril said. “It’s a very intimate process, and you have to really open up when you’re songwriting. When it was over and I had to go work with other people, it sucked.

“So I called him and asked him to come back to LA to do some more writing with me, and he was like, ‘Hell yeah!'”

As a result of their romance, the pair found themselves penning plenty of ballads.

Chad, 38, confessed the music may have been sickly for their collaborators.

“We wrote a song called My Little Secret, about keeping our relationship under wraps,” he spilled. “And others like Let Me Go, Hush Hush, and Give You What You Like. Our writing partner must have been like, ‘You guys are making me sick!'”

Chad proposed a month and six days after they began dating.

Their wedding guests also got a sneak peek inside their love story when the couple debuted a new song.

“We played our duet If I Said I Loved You for our guests and danced to it for our first dance,” Avril added. “Our guests got to hear an exclusive song! It’s our love song. We had to play it at the wedding.”
