Cameron Diaz celebrated New Year’s by welcoming a baby girl with her husband, Benji Madden.
The 47-year-old surprised her fans with the announcement on Instagram. After wishing her followers a happy new year, Diaz also shared the news of her daughter.
Posting a message from herself and Benji, it read, “Happy New Year from the Maddens. We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden. She instantly captured our hearts and completed our family.”
Also adding, “While we are overjoyed to share the news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one’s privacy. So we won’t be posting pictures or sharing any more details, other than the fact that she is really really cute!! Some would even say RAD.”
“From our family to all of yours, we’re sending our love and best wishes for a Happy New Year and Happy New Decade,” the post concluded.
Fans of the actress and the musician were surprised by the news since Diaz had not disclosed her pregnancy. Furthermore, she was not even photographed during those months.
However, a source close to the couple revealed that the Charlie’s Angels actress has always wanted to be a mother. They said, “Cameron really wanted to be a mom. Cameron and Benji were hoping they would be blessed with a baby.”
Benji Madden, the lead guitarist of Good Charlotte, and Diaz tied the knot in 2015. The couple has been extremely private about their personal life.
But Cameron Diaz did open up about their marriage to InStyle magazine in August. She stated, “Getting married to him was the best thing that ever happened to me. My husband’s the best. He’s the greatest human being, and he’s my great partner.”
Also adding, Marriage is certainly hard, and it’s a lot of work. You need somebody who’s willing to do the work with you, because there’s no 60-40 in marriage. It’s 50-50, period. All the time.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
