For Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, at least, 2020 is off to a good start. Early Saturday morning they posted a message to Instagram announcing the arrival of their daughter, who they have named Raddix Madden.

Diaz and Madden said that they felt a "strong instinct to protect our little one's privacy", choosing not to share photos of the baby or any additional details "other than the fact that she is really really cute!! Some would even say RAD :)"

Diaz, 47, and Madden, 40, married in 2015 after a three-month engagement. They had met seven months prior and were introduced by Diaz's friend Nicole Richie, who is married to Benji's twin brother Joel.

It is the first child for the celebrity couple, who, like Nicole and Joel, have kept a relatively low profile in Hollywood since getting together.

In August, Diaz told InStyle magazine how much she values her privacy.

"The way I look at it is that I've given more than half of my life to the public. I feel it's okay for me to take time for myself now to reorganise and choose how I want to come [back] into the world. If I decide to," she said.

"Right now, I'm looking at the landscape of wellness and all that," she added. "But whatever I do, it has to be something I'm passionate about-something that just feels effortless."
