Cameron Diaz Is Loving Life in Quarantine with New Baby


Cameron Diaz isn’t letting being homebound damper her time being a new mom.

The 47-year-old opened up about raising her newborn daughter Raddix alongside husband Benji Madden, while the family remains in self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic, reported CNN.

"I've kinda been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three-month-old - three-and-a-half month - so my life has been completely quiet and still for the last few months,” Diaz said during an appearance on Who What Wear CEO Katherine Power's Instagram Live. “But I was able to have my friends over all the time. And now I just don't see anybody."

But despite being in quarantine, the “Shrek” actress is more than content spending time with her two favorite people in the world.

"I love a bubble, it's so dope. I love being in the womb of my home and with my family, with my husband and cooking," she continued. "But at the same time, it's crazy to think you can't actually go into the world if you wanted to right now and you think of everything happening out there, all the people holding it down is incredible. I'm amazed at how many people are actually out there doing it, risking their lives."

Since welcoming their daughter on December 30th, Diaz has completely fallen in love with being a mom.

"I love being a mother. It's the best, best, best part of my life," she confessed. "I'm so grateful and so happy and it's the best thing ever and I'm so lucky to do it with Benj and we're having the best time. I'm thrilled. I can't believe it."

Diaz and Madden, who married in 2015, are all about teamwork and have split up the parental duties evenly.

"I have to cook at night. I know people hate cooking… I drink [wine] every night it's my wind down for the day," the “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” star said. "After we do bath time with our baby and we put her to sleep, Benji puts her to bed, he's so good. He's such an amazing father. I'm so lucky he's my baby's father. He's incredible. He puts her down and I go into the kitchen and I pour myself a nice glass of red wine. I start my cooking, I put on my show, whatever it is."

Diaz also disclosed staying present helps her cope with all the uncertainty in the world and taking “deep breaths, kiss my baby, kiss my husband and I just go like, we're okay. It's alright. It's all gonna be okay, even though we don't know anything. Nobody does."
