Diaz and Madden met in 2014 through Benji’s twin brother and bandmate, Joel Madden, and his wife, Nicole Richie.

In January 2015, the actress and musician tied the knot and later welcomed their first child, daughter Raddix, in December 2019.

“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,” Diaz wrote on social media at the time. “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:).”
