Actress Cameron Diaz and her musician husband, Benji Madden, have joyfully welcomed a new addition to their family, announcing the arrival of their baby boy, Cardinal Madden, with heartfelt gratitude.

Sharing the news on Instagram, both Diaz and Madden expressed their elation over Cardinal’s arrival while also emphasizing their commitment to safeguarding their children’s privacy. In their post, they affectionately described Cardinal as “awesome” and “really cute,” while refraining from sharing any photos for the sake of their kids’ safety.

Their Instagram announcement echoed sentiments of immense blessing and gratitude, accompanied by an endearing illustration featuring the words, “A little bird whispered to me.” This marks the second child for the couple, who also introduced their daughter, Raddix, to the world in 2020 with a similar commitment to privacy.

Reflecting on her journey into motherhood, Diaz shared in a 2022 interview with CBS News how she chose to take a break from acting to focus on her family, cherishing precious moments with her then 2-year-old daughter. She spoke fondly of the transformative experience of motherhood, noting how witnessing her daughter’s discoveries and milestones evoked nostalgic memories from her own childhood.

In Diaz’s words, “All mothers have that moment where you’re watching your child and they’re doing something the first time and you’re like, ‘I remember doing that!’ It’s really cool.” This profound connection between generations underscores the joy and fulfillment Diaz finds in her role as a mother.

Known for her roles in iconic films like “There’s Something About Mary” and “Charlie’s Angels,” Diaz tied the knot with Madden, a talented musician from the band Good Charlotte, in early 2015. Their love story continues to unfold with the arrival of Cardinal, further enriching their journey as a growing family.

As representatives for Diaz and Madden remained silent on immediate comments, the couple’s focus on cherishing family moments and prioritizing their children’s privacy resonates as a testament to their unwavering commitment to parenthood.
