Hollywood's beloved duo, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, have delighted their fans once again with heartwarming news – the arrival of their second child, a boy they've named Cardinal. The announcement was made in a unique and artistic fashion on Friday when the couple shared a cryptic yet beautiful message through Instagram, featuring a piece of artwork with the inscription, "A little bird whispered to me." In a heartfelt caption accompanying the post, Benji Madden expressed the family's joy and surprise, hinting at the unexpected nature of their news.

"We are blessed and excited to announce the birth of our Son, Cardinal Madden," he penned. The revelation came as a delightful surprise to their followers, given the couple had not previously disclosed they were expecting another addition to their family.

Madden's message continued with a promise of privacy for their newborn, a stance the couple has firmly maintained over the years.

"For the kids' safety and privacy, we won't be posting any pictures- but he's a really cute," he assured. The couple's message radiated gratitude and warmth, extending their love and best wishes to their fans and followers.

Privacy in Parenthood

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, who exchanged vows in a close-knit ceremony back in 2015, have been known for their discretion when it comes to family matters. This tradition of privacy was established with the birth of their first child, a daughter named Raddix, in late 2019.

Much like this recent announcement, the couple chose to share the news of their daughter's arrival with a similar level of quiet excitement and respect for their privacy. "We are so happy, blessed, and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden," Diaz had shared.

The couple expressed an overwhelming sense of joy and completeness brought by their daughter's birth, emphasizing their commitment to safeguarding their children's privacy while sharing the blissful expansion of their family.

In embracing their journey into parenthood once more, Diaz and Madden continue to embody the blend of public joy and private celebration that has characterized their approach to celebrity and family life. Their announcement not only marks the arrival of a new member to their family but also reaffirms their values of love, privacy, and gratitude.
