Cameron's Preg­nant!

Af­ter years of strug­gling to have a baby, IVF works for 45-year-old Cameron Diaz

In Touch (USA) - - Baby News -

Cameron Diaz and Benji Mad­den were ready to be­come par­ents. But it just wasn’t hap­pen­ing. “Cameron’s strug­gles to con­ceive haven’t been easy,” an in­sider tells In Touch. “There were some re­ally tough times when she thought mother­hood maybe just wasn’t in the cards for her, but she never gave up hope that some­day she would be­come a mom.”

Now her dreams are fi­nally com­ing true. Three years af­ter mar­ry­ing the Good Char­lotte rocker, Cameron, 45, is ex­pect­ing her first child with Benji, 38. “Cameron fi­nally has rea­son to cel­e­brate! The IVF worked — she’s preg­nant,” the in­sider tells In Touch ex­clu­sively. “They have a baby on the way, and they couldn’t be hap­pier.” Now comes the best part, says the in­sider, “shar­ing the news with friends and fam­ily and get­ting the nurs­ery ready.”

A LONG, HARD ROAD They feel in­cred­i­bly blessed af­ter try­ing un­suc­cess­fully to con­ceive for so long. “Cameron was su­per healthy, had the best doc­tors — and still, noth­ing. There were a lot of tears,” the in­sider says. “Thank God for Benji, who was al­ways very sup­port­ive. He didn’t care how they had a baby — he was de­ter­mined to make Cameron a mom.” They’d ex­plored other op­tions, in­clud­ing sur­ro­gacy and adop­tion, ex­plains the in­sider, “and then it just hap­pened. Cameron’s pinch­ing her­self.”

MAK­ING PLANS Cameron and Benji haven’t wasted any time prep­ping for baby. “The nurs­ery is al­most done,” says the in­sider. “They’ve been work­ing on baby names for a while now, so they’re all set in that depart­ment but won’t be telling any­one un­til the baby comes,” ex­plains a source. “Cameron’s also not shar­ing the baby’s gen­der just yet, but ev­ery­one thinks it will be a boy be­cause [Mary­land na­tive] Benji has been su­per ex­cited about adding Bal­ti­more Ori­oles items to the nurs­ery. Of course, Benji would do that even if it was a girl, so who knows,” says the in­sider.

It won’t be long be­fore they’re a fam­ily of three. “Cameron loves how into it Benji is, and she can’t wait for her baby to get to know his or her cousins, Har­low and Spar­row [Benji’s twin brother Joel’s kids with Ni­cole Richie; see box],” says the source. And the in­sider adds, “There’s no doubt that Cameron and Benji will make amaz­ing par­ents.” ◼

IN IT TO­GETHER Last year, Cameron gushed about Benji, call­ing him “my part­ner in life and in every­thing” and de­scrib­ing them as “to­tally two peas in a pod.”
