Cameron Diaz is speaking out for the first time since becoming a mom to her three-month-old daughter Raddix!
“I love being a mother. It’s the best, best, best part of my life,” the actress said in the Tuesday video. “I’m so, so grateful and so happy and it’s the best thing ever and I’m so lucky to get to do it with Benji and we’re just having the best time. It’s so great. I’m just thrilled,” Cameron said during an Instagram Live with her friend Katherine Power.
“I’ve kinda been living a quarantine life anyhow because I have a three-month-old, or a three-and-a-half-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,” she added. “But it’s nice, and I love a bubble, I love being in the womb of my home with my husband and cooking. But at the same time it’s crazy that you can’t go out to the world right now.”
“I have to cook at night,” Cameron said about shelter-in-place life. “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 daddy. He’s so incredible. He puts her down and I go into the kitchen and I start dinner and I pour myself a nice glass of red wine. I start my cooking, I put on my show, whatever it is.”
And she revealed how she’s getting through it. “The way I’m making it through this time is by staying in the present,” she said. “I stay in the here and now.”
