"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:)
"From our family to all of yours, we're sending our love and best wishes for a Happy New Year and Happy New Decade...

One user used a viral moment from The Ellen DeGeneres Show of Kim Kardashian tearing up while taking to the eponymous host. "It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things," Kardashian said emotionally.
"CAMERON DIAZ HAD A BABY," the Twitter user wrote, joking that their reaction was akin to Kardashian's in the clip.
Missed opportunity. Could have called him Radditz .... https://t.co/b7pOzdsgnZ— Jacki Jing (@JackiJing) January 3, 2020
Anime enthusiast and Emmy-nominated TV journalist Jacki Jing wrote that Diaz and Madden had a "missed opportunity" and should have named their daughter Raditz, a character from the Dragon Ball Z universe.

Someone else shared a screencap of an old headline titled "Cameron Diaz Is Working on Something New — But She's Keeping it a Secret."
"it was a baby. Cameron Diaz had a baby," the user wrote incredulously.
Wait. I had no idea they were a couple. Last I remember he was with Nicole Richie. Lord I’m out of the loop. https://t.co/T6yP5U9BNY— chris evans (@notcapnamerica) January 3, 2020
Others realized that they were so "out of the loop" on celebrity news that not only was the pregnancy news a surprise to them, but so was the fact that Diaz and Madden were married.
"I had no idea they were a couple. Last I remember he was with Nicole Richie," one Twitter user wrote, mistaking confusing Benji Madden with his twin brother, Joel Madden. Richie and Joel Madden have been married since 2010.
See Cameron Diaz being able to be pregnant& pop her daughter out without the world knowing is why I never believe those celebs that say they can’t have any privacy, it’s there if you want it! Maybe stop calling the paps to where they’ll be. Happy for Cam & Benji though!— 🎄Sarah J🎄 (@saz1878) January 3, 2020
Others speculated that if Diaz was able to "pop her daughter out without the world knowing" then privacy as a celebrity is not completely unattainable, as some stars have implied in the past.
Me checking Twitter to make sure that Cameron Diaz is okay. pic.twitter.com/A4i0evpcDx— Cameron Grant (@camerongrant101) January 3, 2020
When some Twitter users saw Diaz's name trending on the social media platform, they freaked out, thinking of the worst that happens when a celebrity starts to trend out of the blue.
Congratulations to Diaz and Madden!
