A teacher in the Bad Teacher, a spy in Charlie’s Angels, and a mistress in The Other Woman – these roles must have been hard to play for Cameron Diaz but nothing has prepared her for the difficulty of becoming a mother (well perhaps her characters in My Sister’s Keeper and What To Expect When You’re Expecting must have given her an inkling).
Giving birth to a bundle of joy greatly changes your life in many ways you can imagine. Plus, no amount of preparation can ever make you really ready for what’s to come.
As for Cameron, she chose to be a very hands-on mom to her baby Raddix and in fact, she is dedicating her entire time for the bundle of joy. According to a source, she and husband Benji Madden are not hiring extra help.
This next step for the actress is nothing but perfect – what with all the time in the world. Cameron has unofficially retired from the busy scene.
It is unlikely that she was concerned with the additional cost of hiring a nanny, which is a common issue among parents across the United States. It could be that this is an exciting phase the family is embarking on so they want to be at the front and center of the journey.
Cameron’s last project was in 2014 for the film Annie, where she played Miss Agatha Hannigan. After marrying the Good Charlotte band member in 2015, she noticeably had taken a step back from the limelight with no clear announcement that she was retiring.
In an interview last year, the former model revealed that she had given enough time to the public so now she dedicates her time for organizing herself. Plus, she also pointed out that she doesn’t miss performing.
Also, mothers would know how they want to spend every waking moment with their baby, so the thespian’s decision to stay with Raddix all the time makes perfect sense. The couple is obviously wishing to make this big milestone away from the prying eyes of the public.
The 47-year-old star gave birth to her child on Dec. 30, 2019, but they only made the big announcement on Jan. 4. But as much as her supporters wanted to see the adorable baby, Cameron made it clear that they won’t be posting her pics because they want to protect her privacy.
