If someone truly wants to keep their private life private, we suggest you take tips from none other Cameron Diaz herself. The Charlie’s Angel star knows how to keep her personal life away from the eyes of paparazzi and how! The entire world was surprised when Cameron announced the arrival of her little angel in January. Cameron married Benji Madden in January 2015, the renowned guitarist, in all too private settings.
Although they had known each other for years, they officially began dating in May 2014.
Unlike the other high-profile romances of Hollywood, Cameron’s romantic life stayed well off the radar. In an interview in 2015, she said,
“You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything (…) If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn’t want, it’s never gonna work (…) finding the guy who’s in the same place as you are and wants to show up is the only way a relationship works”

While we do not doubt that for a second (look at those cute parents already!), we are even more mesmerized with little Madden’s adorable middle names!

Cameron Diaz on Motherhood
Although Cameron Diaz has been quite protective of her baby and personal life, she recently opened up about her motherhood on Instagram Live. While talking to Katherine Power, the CEO of Who What Wear, Diaz said,
“I’ve kind of been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three-month-old (…) so my life has been quiet and still for the last few months.”
While ‘The Other Woman’ actress makes dinner for the family every night, Madden puts the little Raddix to sleep. She also complimented Benji for his wonderful parenting skills –

We cannot deny that Cameron’s joy is highly contagious and it would not be wrong for us to wonder when the talented star will be back on the screen. Cameron Diaz starred for the last time in ‘Annie’ as Miss Hannigan in 2014. She later officially announced that she has taken retirement from her acting career. Although the fans hoped that after a hiatus of almost 6 years, Cameron Diaz might be back. But, the actress chose otherwise. During another Instagram Live, Cameron made it clear that she has no intention of returning to movies. “I’m not going to do more films at the moment.” She even told in an interview in 2019 that she does not miss performing at all.
So it might be a while before the ‘Knight And Day’ actress decides to join the industry once again. Till then, all we know is that Cameron is happy being a mother in the coziness of her home and enjoying quarantine to the fullest.
