We haven’t seen much of Cameron Diaz in recent years as the 47 year old actress stepped down from the Hollywood spotlight six years ago and has always kept much of her private life, private
But in the past few days, Cameron has announced to the world that she and her husband of five years, 40 year old Benji Madden, have welcomed a baby girl into the world and she’s called Raddix Madden.
Cameron shared the exciting news on her Instagram
In keeping with her desire to lead a relatively private life, she also said that they won’t be sharing any details of the birth or posting any photographs.
Her beautiful Instagram post wished all her followers a happy new year and then said, “We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden. She has instantly captured our hearts and complete our family”.
Cameron was spotted out and about in LA last November without a bump, so the rumour mills are flying as to whether Raddix was born to a surrogate or was adopted
But to us, the details are irrelevant. It seems that Cameron and Benji also think that how Raddix was conceived and born is something they’d prefer not to talk about in public, with the actor continuing on her Instagram post, “While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one’s privacy. So we won’t be sharing any more details, other than the fact that she is really, really cute!!”
Talking about her husband last year, she said he was “the greatest human being”
In the rare interview, she told InStyle magazine that marriage is a lot of hard work and that you had to be with someone who shared that load 50:50, 100% of the time. Despite not being sure that she was ready for marriage at the time, she knew Benji was a good man.
Cameron has no plans to rush back into the spotlight since living a quiet life for the past six years, saying she’s given more than half her life to the public. Now she has one of the biggest roles of her life – as a mum!
Whether through assisted conception, surrogacy, adoption or not, we wish Cameron and Benji all the best with their beautiful baby.
