More details on Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden’s new baby revealed

Posted in Newborn.

Back in the first week of January the surprising news that actor Cameron Diaz and musician Benji Madden had welcomed a baby girl broke.

More on baby Raddix

Now more details have emerged about the pair’s new daughter, including her birth date and unusual middle name.

We already knew the couple had named their newborn – probably born via surrogate or gestational carrier – Raddix (Rad for short, we are thinking!) They announced it on Instagram when they revealed they’d become parents.

Now media outlet The Blast have (albeit intrusively) secured Rad’s birth certificate. It shows that her full name is Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden and that she was born on December 30, 2019, at 1:58 pm at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

It’s thought that the ‘Wildflower’ part of Benji and Cam’s baby name is a nod to actor Drew Barrymore, whose recent memoir was titled Wildflower too.

Cam and Drew are super-dooper close, so it would come as no surprise if there’s been a hat tip to her in Raddix’s name.

“We’re like more than best friends, she’s my sister,” Drew confirmed to ET back in 2018.

“We have much more of that kind of relationship, we’re very honest with each other. We push each other. And we’ve had the majority of our lives spent side by side, really going through what real life is, which is an everyday high and low and we just have each other’s backs.”

Cameron and Benji announced their baby’s arrival on Instagram, as is the custom these days.

“Happy New Year from the Maddens!” they posted in matching updates.

“We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden. She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family.”

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

Rad indeed (and flowery too!)
