“While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one’s privacy,” the statement concluded. “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.”

Later that month, a source revealed to Us Weekly that the couple welcomed their daughter via surrogate.

“Cameron and Benji had been trying to have a baby for a long time,” the insider said at the time. “There were disappointments along the way, so it was difficult and stressful at times. But they say it was a price worth paying. They feel beyond blessed.”

Diaz and Madden were introduced in 2014 by the musician’s twin brother, Joel Madden, and his wife, Nicole Richie. The pair tied the knot in January 2015 in an intimate ceremony at their Beverly Hills home.

The Bad Teacher actress explained that she put off motherhood to focus on her career in a 2012 interview with Redbook.

“I thought I was going to be married and have two children by the time I was 21. I think I felt I had to model my life after my mother’s,” she said at the time. “But then my career was starting to take off and there were still so many things I wanted to do. So that dream [of motherhood] for me was shattered early on. After that, I never put another timeline on anything in my life.”
