The news was revealed by the couple through a similar Instagram post.  They began the caption by wishing the new year to everyone. They wrote that they were happy, blessed, and grateful to begin a new decade with the arrival of their daughter Raddix Madden. To protect Raddix’s privacy, Diaz and Madden, like Cardinal, have not shared any images of her. Despite this, Diaz continues to wax poetic about her life as a mother.

In an interview in July 2020, Diaz praised motherhood by saying that she had entered the best phase of her life in the past seven months. She also said that the quarantine of 2020 was heaven with her infant. She also shared their jamming sessions with the baby where they mixed Baby Shark and Sesame Street jams. 

She recounted that people had always advised her to cherish the time when babies are young, emphasizing how quickly it passes. She noted that every day brings noticeable progress and changes in her baby, remarking that the child is different from the previous day.

In an interview, Diaz praised Madden as the “ultimate dad”. She said that at home he is Benj, who takes care of the children and manages his business and then transforms into a rockstar when he steps on the stage. She said it was amazing to watch him perform. In another interview, Diaz gushed about Madden’s talent and special moments with their daughter. She said that he is incredibly creative. She added that he should create a kids’ album as his songs are so catchy. Madden sings the songs to their daughter and Diaz mentioned it as the most heartwarming thing ever.

She expressed that when one is engaged in something they know well and have excelled in, and which has consumed their life for a considerable time, it can be beneficial to take a step back. Diaz suggested reflecting on the entirety of their situation and considering areas for improvement and greater engagement that would contribute to a sense of wholeness.
