Becoming a parent isn’t easy, but Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are seemingly adjusting just fine!

As you’re likely aware, the couple announced the arrival of their daughter Raddix Madden via Instagram on January 3, and we couldn’t be more overjoyed for the family of three!

While it has not been confirmed by the new parents, there have been rumors the baby girl was delivered via surrogate and not by the 47-year-old. An insider chimed in via Us Weekly:

“Cameron and Benji had been trying to have a baby for a long 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.”

And more of their family is feeling grateful, too! Joel Madden and Nicole Richie have evidently enjoyed taking on the role of aunt and uncle, the confidant shared:

“Nicole and Joel have been so great, and they’ve offered to help in any way they can, both now and moving forward. They’re going to be a huge part of Raddix’s life — the plan is to really integrate the two families so all the kids can grow up together and be one big, happy family.”

The couple’s kids, 11-year-old Harlow and 10-year-old Sparrow Madden, are also over the moon about the arrival of their new cousin:

“They’re so great with kids and will be incredibly fun and loving parents. Cameron’s very close with all her nieces and nephews. They all adore her and are excited to see her as a mom with a baby of her own.”

So sweet!!

For those familiar with the notoriously private pair, it didn’t come as a huge shock they chose to hold off on sharing the baby news until after her arrival. An insider revealed to People that the couple has no plans on hiring a nanny to help with Raddix’s care:

“Cameron wants to spend every second with the baby. Their close friends are extremely loyal, so it’s not strange that they were able to keep it quiet.”

Back in August, the Charlie’s Angels star opened up about stepping away from the industry and her new lifestyle. At the time, she shared with InStyle:

“I feel it’s OK for me to take time for myself now to reorganize and choose how I want to come [back] into the world. If I decide to. I don’t miss performing. Right now I’m looking at the landscape of wellness and all that. But whatever I do, it has to be something I’m passionate about — something that just feels effortless.”

Motherhood definitely falls into that category. Wishing the blissful mom and dad all the best!!
