Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden announced today they are the new parents of a baby daughter, Raddix. However, The Blast has learned the baby was born 5 days ago and even shares a birthday with two of the greatest athletes of all time!
According to baby Raddix’s birth certificate, filed in Los Angeles County, the baby girl was actually born December 30, 2019. Her famous parents decided to announce her birth on Friday, Jan. 3.
Baby Raddix will now forever share a birthday with LeBron James AND Tiger Woods. Her parents are famous enough, maybe they can all get together for a massive B-Day party at some point in the future!
The actress and ‘Good Charlotte’ band member shocked the world after they both posted a message on Instagram announcing the birth.
“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,” it read.
It continued, “She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family. While we are overjoyed to share the news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one’s privacy. “
The couple let the public know they won’t be posting any pictures of the newborn, saying, “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 🙂 From our family to all of yours, we’re sending our love and best wishes for a Happy New Year and Happy New Decade.”
BTW…little Raddix already has some rock star in her blood because of her father… but she will also share a birthday with legendary musician Bo Diddley.
Diddly played a key role in the creation of modern-day rock and roll. He influenced many artists, including Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones.
Cameron Diaz has discussed having kids or not on several occasions over the years “I think women are afraid to say that they don’t want children because they’re going to get shunned. But I think that’s changing too now. I have more girlfriends who don’t have kids than those that do. And honestly? We don’t need any more kids. We have plenty of people on this planet,” she told Cosmo in 2009.
Diaz later added, “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 Octomom — who freaking knows?”
“If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them. But I’m certain that if at any point I wanted a child, that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child. I can’t see the future, but one thing I do know is that I’m not childless. I have a ton of children in my life. I can have a kid any second, if I want. All my friends would be like, ‘Sure, come and get them,” Diaz told The Telegraph in 2014.
Congratulations to the new parents, and happy birthday, Raddix!
