On December 30, 2019, Benji and Cameron welcomed their first child to the Madden family. Having waited a long time to become parents, the pair are reportedly over the moon and enjoying spending as much time with her as possible.

THE PROTECTIVE PARENTS

According to a source close to the couple, they take turns in staying with baby Raddix and rarely leave the house together. As new parents, they are "very protective" of their daughter, and avoid taking her out due to the flu season.

IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING

Cameron and Benji reportedly had their minds set on having children since they married in January 2015. Now that they have their first child, Cameron wants to spend "every second" with Raddix.

The couple worked on lowering their stress levels and getting more healthy after they wed to prepare for their future bundle of joy, and news of Raddix's birth shocked the world since Cameron and Benji kept the news private.

“Cameron wants to spend every second with the baby,” the source added. "Their close friends are extremely loyal, so it’s not strange that they were able to keep it quiet.”

THEY HAVE KEPT DETAILS ABOUT RADDIX QUIET

Benji and Cameron announced the arrival of Raddix on social media on January 3, and due to a "strong instinct" to protect their newborn's privacy, the couple only said that she is "really really cute!"

The celebrity couple also reportedly opted out of hiring extra help for the time being, as spending as much time with their daughter is on top of their priority list.

According to Raddix's birth certificate obtained by The Blast, she was born at Cedar's Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, via surrogacy or adoption.

In charge of her own schedule, Cameron Diaz has the career flexibility to better deal with the demands of being a new mother. She hasn't worked in the entertainment industry since 2014 and admitted four years later that she decided to retire from acting.

During an interview in August 2019, Cameron explained that she had given "more than half" her life to the public and that the time had come to focus on a living a life that wasn't damaging her well-being.
