Cameron Diaz and her husband Benji Madden have revealed they've become parents to a baby girl. While notoriously private, 47-year-old actor Cameron and 40-year-old Good Charlotte musician Benji have announced that their daughter is called Raddix Madden on a post on Instagram.


"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," exclaimed the happy post, before continuing that they wouldn't be sharing any pictures of the newborn.

Amazingly, Cameron managed to keep her baby news private. According to The Daily Mail, she was photographed a month and a half ago looking slim in jeans, which has prompted speculation that the couple may have adopted their baby or given birth via surrogacy.

Rumours about Cameron spotted with a baby bump first appeared in 2011, when she was snapped with a large baby bump over the weekend. However, the actress had been photographed on set of the film she was making at the time, What To Expect When You're Expecting.

The actress was photographed sporting a visible baby bump in a tight vest with the words "Lose It and Weep" across her chest and Lycra hotpants.

Cameron, who was 40 at the time, talked in interviews about her thoughts on becoming a mum at some point.

"I never say never. I don't know what's going to happen. I could end up adopting half a dozen kids, or I could end up being the next 'Octo-mom' - who knows," Cameron said in an interview in 2009.
