Although their birth announcement explained that, as parents, they plan on protecting the privacy of their newborn baby girl by not talking about her publicly, a source is now letting the world in on Cameron Diaz‘s and Benji Madden‘s new life as parents.
On January 3, Diaz and Madden took to Instagram to share news of their daughter’s, Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden, birth. “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 has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family.”
The proud new mom went on to write, “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 cute!!”
Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden Love Being Parents, Source Says
However, as People is reporting, a source close to Diaz and Madden is sharing a little glimpse into what their lives look like now that they’re a family of three. “They love being parents. This is their full-time job and they just want to be with their daughter.”
In March, Benji took to Instagram to share some brief, but sweet, words about his wife and baby girl. “My Wife and Daughter fill me up with so much gratitude. Every day, I feel so lucky. Just wanted to say it out loud!!! Much Love & Best Wishes.” It was the most either of the new parents has ever talked about their family since becoming parents until Diaz opened up ever so slightly on an Instagram Live.
While talking with Who What Wear CEO Katherine Power, Diaz said, “I love being a mother. It’s the best, best, best part of my life,” Diaz said. “I’m so, so grateful and so happy and it’s the best thing ever and I’m so lucky to get to do it with Benji and we’re just having the best time.”
“As new parents, they always felt very protective about Raddix,” the source told People. “In the beginning, it was more like they wanted to protect her privacy and [didn’t want] her to be photographed. Now, their number one concern is for everyone to stay healthy.”
“They stay at home as much as possible and only go out for necessary errands,” the source continued. “They very much enjoy their new life with Rad.” It looks like Diaz and Madden are willing to do whatever they need to do to make sure their little one’s privacy is private and her life is filled with so much love.
