Diaz and Madden did not previously reveal they were expecting a child. The couple, who tied the knot in 2015, surprised fans in January 2020 when they announced they welcomed a baby girl named Raddix via surrogate.

Although they kept their second pregnancy under wraps, it’s no surprise they welcomed a new addition to their family. 

“Cameron and Benji have discussed having another child and have even been looking into surrogate options for a while now,” a source told Us Weekly in July 2022.

“Benji always wanted a big family, and Cameron didn’t need to be persuaded after the arrival of their daughter.”

Diaz and Madden’s son arrived as the actress prepares to release “Back in Action”, her first movie since 2014’s “Annie.”
