Much like Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, Cameron Diaz and Good Charlotte's Benji Madden are notoriously private about their relationship. Despite dating since 2014, marrying in 2015 and welcoming their first daughter, Raddix, in January 2020, not that much is known about their personal lives.

Which might be why fans lapped up the rare insight Cameron just gave into their marriage, opening up to makeup artist and close friend Gucci Westman for YouTube series Makeup & Friends.

In it, while Gucci does Cameron's makeup, they talked about everything from getting ready for movie premieres to how Cameron is finding motherhood - and her marriage to the Good Charlotte singer.

"I love being married," said the 47-year-old. "The best thing that's ever happened to me is finding my husband, and our partnership, and our friendship."


Diaz went on to explain how food is definitely her 'love language', continuing, "Now that I've been home for six years, half of my house is my kitchen. When I feed the people I love, the things that I want them to have is the experience of feeling like it hit their heart, that they can feel my love."

Speaking about what it's like being a new mum, Cameron continued, "I love being a mother. It's the best, best, best part of my life. 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."

On Benji's, 41, parenting, she added, "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."

Cameron and Benji were introduced by Nicole Richie, who is married to Benji's twin brother Joel, in 2014, and were married after 10 months together. Sounds like they're living the dream, tbh.
