Cameron Diaz is one of the most notoriously private celebrities—and that was true even before she and her husband, Benji Madden, announced the arrival of their daughter, Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden, in early January.
But she recently popped onto Instagram Live with her friend Who What Wear's Katherine Power to talk about life as a new mom during quarantine. "I've kinda been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three-month-old, three-and-a-half month. So my life has been completely quiet and still for the last few months," Diaz said, per Entertainment Tonight. "But I was able to have my friends over all the time. And now I just don't see anybody."
Nowadays her routine sounds pretty relatable. "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."
While she may not be able to see other people right now or take Raddix out and about, Diaz isn't complaining at all about motherhood. "I love being a mother. It's the best, best, best part of my life," she said. "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."
Diaz and Madden surprised the world in early January with the news of their daughter's birth. "Happy New Year from the Maddens,” they wrote in an Instagram post. “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. While we are overjoyed to share this 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 really cute. Some would even say RAD."
