Cameron Diaz has kind of been off the radar (apparently by choice) as of late, unless your holiday movie viewing has included a screening of The Holiday. She and her hubby of almost three years, Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden, recently made headlines when they sued a remodeling firm who botched improvements on the couple’s home. Cameron and Benji may also need to include a nursery in any home refurbishment plans, as they are looking to expand their family through adoption.
Cameron, 45, and Benji, 38, “have decided to try adoption and have started the process,” the source exclusively reveals. “They want to adopt from within the U.S. and are counting the days. Cameron is very hopeful. Though they are so fulfilled in every way, they feel this would complete their family.”
“Cameron feels like the timing is right,” the source continues. “She’s been asking friends about adoption and reading parenting books. It’s taking time and they have been so patient, but they are both bursting with excitement.”
They have the same vision for their growing family. “Cameron and Benji would love a newborn and have both agreed they want a boy, but they of course will be happy with any healthy baby,” the insider adds.
I think that after almost three years of marriage (their anniversary is on January 5), these two are ready to open their home to a new life. They seem to really love each other, and would be great parents, especially if they’re already doing all of the leg work. I wish them all the best. Oh, and don’t watch The Holiday if you’re looking for a Christmas movie fix. If you want a somewhat non-conventional holiday comedy, I highly recommend Just Friends with Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart. You’re welcome.
