It’s hard to believe, but Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are parents to an almost 1-year-old daughter.
The pair announced the birth of Raddix Madden in January, and People magazine later revealed that their baby was born on December 30, 2019.
Cameron and Benji are notoriously private, and they really haven’t shared a lot of details about their daughter or about their life together. However, Cameron did recently open up to Naomi Campbell about what it’s been like to become a mom in the “second half” of her life.
“A lot of people do it the other way around … they get married [and] have a family in their youth,” she joked.
“I’m kind of doing it in the second half of my life. The only pressure for me now is I have to live to be, like, 107, you know? No pressure!”
Cameron also shared that becoming a mom at 48 meant that she really had to be sure that’s what she wanted.
“Even with all of the amazing experiences I’ve had in traveling and accomplishments of working hard and putting things into the world I’m proud of … I know, this is really the most gratifying time in my life, to be in this place, to get here. Having a family when you’re young … it’s like anything when you’re young: You do it. But when you’re my age and you decide to do it, it’s a real choice. You really have to work hard for it.”
This philosophy also extends to how she feels about marriage: “When you’re young, you become one another, you know, you melt into one another, but when you’re older and you start a marriage, you’re really aware of what it takes to become partners with one another because you’ve been individuals for so long.”
The last time we heard anything about Raddix from Cameron was back in April of this year. You can see what she had to say then by watching the video below!
