Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne is keen to start a family after being the first person to hold her best pal and songwriting partner's new baby.

The SK8ER BOI singer was thrilled when Chantal Kreviazuk (corr) handed the teen star her new baby after Lavigne helped her through labour recently.

Lavigne says, "I was the first one to hold the baby after Chantal and her husband (RAINE MAIDA)."

Meanwhile, Lavigne has suggested she's still a virgin at 19 - in an interview with American newspaper USA TODAY.

She adds, "My mom taught me to stand up for myself and have respect for myself. She also taught me not to have sex before I got married."
