“Happy New Year from the Maddens!” reads the Instagram reveal.
Proud parent moment!
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have announced the birth of their daughter, Raddix, on Friday, January 3.
“We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden. She has completely captured our hearts and completed our family. 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 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 47-year-old actress, who married the 40-year-old rocker in 2015, has caught many of us by surprise. The Daily Mail writes that the notoriously private star was pictured looking slim in high-waisted jeans on November 22 while out for lunch in LA, which suggests the pair used a surrogate or adopted.
In an interview with Esquire in 2014 Cameron didn't seem to interested in motherhood. She is quoted as saying:
"It's so much more work to have children. To have lives besides your own that you are responsible for—I didn't take that on. That did make things easier for me. A baby—that's all day, every day for eighteen years."
Looks like things have changed since she met and married Benji.
Raddix is the first child for both Diaz and Madden
