Avril Lavigne would ''love to'' have children.

The 29-year-old singer - who is married to Nickelback rocker Chad Kroeger - definitely wants to have kids one day, but insists she is currently too busy with her work.

She said: ''I'm really focused on my career at the moment.

''Down the road, I would love to be a mom, just not right now.''

The 'Complicated' hitmaker thinks it is ''crazy'' she will turn 30 in September, but while she still feels young, she admits she has experienced a lot.

She said: ''I feel young but yeah I've lived a lot. I've been doing this music career for over a decade and travelling non-stop. It's kind of crazy. I don't have a plan yet (for my 30th birthday) ... but I'm hoping for a big party.''

These days, Avril admits she finds herself returning home to see her family a lot more than she did in the early days of her career.

She explained in an interview with QMI: ''When I was a younger, like a teenager on the road, they're not necessarily where your priorities are at.

''But yeah, as I've gotten older I've realised how closer I am to my family more than ever. That's just a part of growing up and stuff like that. I've spent a lot of my time in Los Angeles and just really missed my family and was like, 'You know what? I want to spend more time with them 'cause they're the people at the end of the day that are really there for me, that have my back.' ''
