51-year-old Cameron Diaz and 45-year-old Benji Madden quietly welcome baby number 2 – people criticize decision

Benji Madden and Cameron Diaz have been married for over nine years now.

After welcoming their daughter four years ago, they’ve recently introduced their second child into the world, keeping their family life largely out of the public eye.

The 51-year-old actress and her 45-year-old musician husband announced the birth of their son, Cardinal, on Friday via Instagram.

Accompanying the announcement was a piece of artwork with the words, “A little bird whispered to me,” signifying the arrival of their newest family member.

In the caption, Madden expressed their joy, saying, “We are blessed and excited to announce the birth of our Son, Cardinal Madden. He is awesome and we are all so happy he is here!”

Given their commitment to privacy, the couple refrained from sharing photos of their children on social media. Madden emphasized their gratitude and love, concluding with warm wishes to everyone.

Their approach to privacy isn’t new. They wed in 2015 and welcomed their daughter, Raddix, in 2019, opting to keep her arrival low-key until after her birth.

In her birth announcement for Raddix, Diaz expressed their happiness and thanked everyone for their support. They also emphasized their desire to shield their daughter from the public eye, revealing only a few details about her birth.

Sources close to the couple have revealed that Raddix was born through surrogacy, a journey filled with challenges that ultimately led to their joyous moment. Diaz reportedly considers her children as miracles, cherishing the journey that brought them into their lives.

However, not all responses to their news have been positive. Some have expressed surprise and skepticism, questioning the couple’s decision to expand their family later in life. Despite differing opinions, Madden and Diaz remain focused on their family’s happiness and well-being, prioritizing their privacy above all else.
