Before meeting her forever beau Benji Madden, Cameron Diaz dated a slew of Hollywood A-listers including Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez, but it's safe to say nobody else compared to the rockstar in the blonde bombshell's eyes.

Cameron, 51, even revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she could have never imagined walking down the aisle after turning 40 if it wasn't for meeting the TV judge: "I didn't think it was something I'd do, and I don't know if I'd have done it if I hadn't met my husband. It was a surprise," she explained.

Talking about meeting her future husband for the first time, Cameron told Andy: "It was one of those things where everyone tells you, 'You just know when you know.' I was like, 'What does that mean? Oh, I get it.'

"You just know when you know. Like 'you're my husband.' How come I didn’t know this before? We had never been in the same circle."

When did the couple get married?

Cameron and Benji dated for less than a year before the news broke that they were engaged in December 2014, when the actress was spotted wearing a gold engagement ring. The couple went on to marry in January 2015 in an intimate wedding at their Beverly Hills home.

"We got married in our living room in front of our friends," Cameron previously told radio host Andy. "[We] had a little party in our backyard on the tennis court and yeah. Otherwise, it would have been something else," she added.

Do they have children?

Four years after tying the knot, in December 2019, the happy couple welcomed their daughter, Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden, but didn't announce news of her arrival until January 2020. The pair have never publicly revealed if they used a surrogate or adoption to become parents.

"While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one's privacy. So we won't be posting pictures or sharing any more details, other than the fact that she is really really cute!! Some would even say RAD."

Cameron and Benji most recently welcomed a son, Cardinal Madden, making the announcement on Instagram on March 23 2024.
