Cameron Diaz has said she has been in “heaven” being in lockdown with her baby.

The Hollywood star and her husband Benji Madden announced in January that they had welcomed daughter Raddix and both are pretty private about their family life.

But Diaz opened up during a chat with TV star Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, revealing motherhood was definitely suiting her.

The actress, 47, said she has realised how right people were when they said raising children goes so quickly.

“Literally every single day, there's just leaps and bounds and these things that happen, and she's not the same baby that she was yesterday!” she exclaimed.

“Yesterday is literally gone, and today is a new day, and tomorrow will be a new day that she's a completely different baby.

“But it's so gratifying to actually get to see that growth and to be a part of it and to help let her be her, it’s just amazing.”

“We are just so happy,” she said of herself and Madden, 41.

Diaz and Good Charlotte guitarist Madden tied the knot in 2015 and welcomed Raddix in December.

They kicked off the New Year by posting a message on Instagram revealing her arrival, writing: “We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden.

"She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family. 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."
