Cameron Diaz Opens Up About Life as a New Mom in Rare Interview
Actress Cameron Diaz is enjoying mom life as she quarantines with her baby girl Raddix and husband Benji Madden.
Diaz got candid about cooking, cleaning, and mommy-ing in a rare interview about her home life with Who What Wear CEO Katherine Power on Instagram Live.
Cameron revealed, "I've kinda been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three-month-old... So my life has been completely quiet and still for the last few months. But I was able to have my friends over all the time. And now I just don't see anybody."
The 47-year-old went on, "But it's nice, and I love a bubble and being in the womb of my home with my husband and cooking," she added. "But at the same time it's crazy that you can't go out to the world right now."
She is really loving his new chapter in her life, gushing, "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."
Her new normal is "cooking, cleaning or taking care of my baby — and usually all at the same time,” and her nightly routine sounds relatable!
"I have to cook at night. I know people hate cooking… I drink [wine] every night — it's my wind-down for the day," she explained. "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."
It sounds like she has a new quarantine look, too, poking fun at herself for wearing “a sweater, over a dress, over a pair of pants.”
As for how she's coping with the pandemic, aside from cleaning her home section by section, she said, "I stay here and in the now," with a focus on "what I have right now.”
Cameron and Benji welcomed Raddix on December 30, 2019.
