Cameron Diaz loves being a mother to Raddix, her 2-year-old daughter, but she’s not hesitant to say that motherhood can be difficult.
Diaz, who retired from performing following 2014’s “Annie,” gave birth to her first child in December 2019 at the age of 47. Diaz and her husband Benji Madden adopted a kid through surrogacy, and she has stated that her experience was unusual because she did it later in life. “A lot of people do it the other way around, marrying and starting a family when they’re young.” She told Naomi Campbell in her “No Filter” YouTube series, “I’m kind of doing it in the second half of my life.” “Having a family while you’re young,” she continued, “is like everything else: You do it.” “But it’s a true option when you’re my age and decide to do it.” You have to put in a lot of effort.” She now has no choice but to live as long as she possibly can. “The only pressure I have is that I have to live to be 107 years old, you know?” So there’s no pressure!” she joked.
Diaz also stated that becoming a mother has been “very rewarding,” and that this stage of her life is “my sweet spot and happiest time.” That isn’t to say that things aren’t difficult. The “Charlie’s Angels” actor became frank about the struggles she faces as a mom during an interview on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
Cameron Diaz enjoys being a mother, but she admits that it may be stressful. The former actress said she’d lost her cool in an appearance with “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” emphasizing the need of open communication with her youngster.
“You know what else is incredibly important – to repair,” she added. “Like, if you blow up, you can just fix it and say, ‘Oh my God, mommy lost her s***.'” ‘I didn’t mean to say that to you,’ she added. I just want you to know that Mommy is human, too, if I hurt your feelings or upset you.'” Diaz also mentioned that she is aware of her daughter’s requirements. “Did she eat anything?” Is she exhausted? What time is it, exactly? When did she last eat something? When did she take her nap? You just start there and think, ‘What just happened?’ “Is there something she’s trying to say to me?” she continued. “And I feel like my responsibility as a parent is to just help her find words for her feelings, her experience, and what she’s going through, and then to be able to help her acknowledge that and move on.”
Dia says she’s glad for her husband, Good Charlotte frontman Benji Madden, who has her back when it comes to motherhood. “He’s fantastic. He’s a fantastic father “According to Us Weekly, she revealed this during an Instagram Live in 2020. “I’m very grateful he’s the father of my child. He’s absolutely fantastic.”
