Avril Lavigne's in no rush to have kids

04/15/2007 at 02:23 PM ET

AlavigneAvril Lavigne, 22, kept her promise to be married by 21 – she tied the knot with Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, 27, in July – but she’s reneging on her word to become a mother in three years’ time.

When I was 17, I told an interviewer I’d be married by 21 and have kids by 25. But I’m still a kid. I need to be married and do my work. I’ll have kids later, like 10 years from now.

When she does have children, Avril may opt for an elective C-section after watching a live birth video on YouTube with an expectant buddy in horror.

I was breathing, like, ‘I can’t do this! What happens next? I want a C-section!’

She needs to watch a live C-Section. My sister had her first naturally and had to have an emergency C with her twins. Painful and much longer healing time. More room for infection, etc.

I wonder if she’s seen a c-section video *cringe*

I had my twins vaginally and I had wicked pain and aching afterwards from the tearing and stitches “you know where”. I thought at the time a C-section would have hurt less until I had a full tummy tuck and liposuction 18 months later. THAT had to be the worst post-op pain ever. I feel sorry for anyone who had to have a C-section and then have to deal with a newborn afterwards!

I so wish that Avril would watch the natural, unassisted births I have posted on my site (unassistedchildbirth.com) and on Youtube. She would have a totally different impression of natural birth.
