Unexpected news: Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden greet the second child at ages 51 and 45

Benji Madden and Cameron Diaz have been married for more than nine years. Their first child, a daughter, was born four years ago, but they chose to keep her away from public attention.

Surprising everyone, the couple recently announced the arrival of their second child, a son named Cardinal. The news caught many off guard as Benji and Cameron have always been private about their personal lives. They shared the announcement on Instagram with an artwork captioned, “A little bird whispered to me,” revealing their son’s birth. They also mentioned their decision not to share photos of their children due to safety and privacy concerns.

This isn’t the first time the couple has kept their family news under wraps. They tied the knot in 2015 and welcomed their daughter, Raddix, in 2019, choosing to announce her birth post facto. Cameron Diaz expressed her love for Raddix, stating, “She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family.”

Despite their excitement over the new addition, Benji and Cameron are committed to safeguarding their children’s privacy. While they haven’t disclosed details about their son’s birth, a close source revealed they faced challenges conceiving their daughter and consider her a miracle.

Critics have targeted Cameron’s age, now 51, for having a child. However, amidst the scrutiny, Benji and Cameron remain joyful and appreciative of their expanding family. Their decision to shield their children from the public eye deserves respect.

As they embark on this new chapter as a family of four, we extend our warmest wishes to them.
