Cameron Diaz doesn’t do interviews often, and she’s purposely chosen not to share much about her and Benji Madden’s three-month-old daughter Raddix. But Diaz joined Who What Wear CEO Katherine Power’s Instagram Live and spoke glowingly about parenthood on Tuesday. She offered a rare look into her life in quarantine and with her new little girl.
“I love being a mother. It’s the best, best, best part of my life,” she said, according to Entertainment Tonight. “I’m so grateful and so happy and it’s the best thing ever and I’m so lucky to do it with Benj and we’re having the best time. I’m thrilled. I can’t believe it.”
These days, “I’m either cooking, cleaning or taking care of my baby—and usually all at the same time,” Diaz said. “I have to cook at night. I know people hate cooking… I drink [wine] every night it’s my wind down for the day. After we do bath time with our baby and we put her to sleep, Benji puts her to bed. He’s so good. He’s such an amazing father. I’m so lucky he’s my baby’s father. He’s incredible. He puts her down and I go into the kitchen and I pour myself a nice glass of red wine. I start my cooking, I put on my show, whatever it is.”
Diaz admitted that quarantine hasn’t changed her life too much because she had a newborn. “I’ve kinda been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three month old, three-and-a-half month,” she said. “So my life has been completely quiet and still for the last few months. But I was able to have my friends over all the time. And now I just don’t see anybody.”
Diaz announced Raddix’s birth on her Instagram at the beginning of January. “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 wrote. “She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family. While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong inclination to protect our little one’s privacy. So we won’t be posting pictures or sharing any more details, other than the fact 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…”
