Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden Have Welcomed a Daughter
The couple announced some big news to start off the new year.
Earlier this year, Cameron Diaz welcomed her daughter, Raddix. And if anyone assumed that that the new arrival would end up eating puréed baby food like every other basic baby, they're very, very wrong. In a preview for Diaz's upcoming appearance on The Rachael Ray Show, the actor explained that she's been cooking for Raddix — and always has. And the menu? Let's just say that the little one is eating really, really well.
"The first four months [of quarantine] I cooked every single meal," Diaz told Ray. "For the most part I am cooking all our meals ... you know I love to cook, it’s my love language. I love to cook for my husband, I love to cook for my child now; being able to make the food for her has been incredible."

Diaz went on to say that she's doing all that she can to make sure that Raddix doesn't grow up to be a picky eater. That means that Diaz has been making food that she and her husband, Benji Madden, would also eat. No bland food in sight, she insists, because she's cooking with herbs, spices, and even garlic.
"She never had a puree. She never got anything pureed, she has been just eating ... I'll put garlic. She's had garlic from day one," Diaz added. "She eats bone marrow, and liver and she loves it. I put herbs in everything, thyme and dill, sage, everything. She just loves all of it."
Like many of us, Diaz is cooking a lot during quarantine, but she's happy to do it. Not only is it her love language, she says that she just loves being able to spend time with her family.
"The best part of it for having to stay within our little bubble within this COVID situation is that her dad, my husband Benji, he gets to be home," she said during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers. "He works from home. So he gets to be with her as much as I do — well, not as much because he's working all day long — but he actually gets to come out of a meeting and give her a kiss and play with her for a little bit, whereas if he was going to the office every day, he wouldn't have been able to do that. So we're just having a lot of gratitude for that."
