Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden Are Reportedly Engaged
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are reportedly engaged!
The actress and rocker have taken the next step in their relationship, multiple sources tell Us Weekly. And it's a big one for Diaz, who told Esquire in 2012 (per the Huffington Post) that marriage "just wasn't a thing I was drawn to."
"Everyone thinks it's wild but are so happy for them," an insider revealed to the magazine. "Benji always tends to fall in love easily, but this time it's for real and he landed a great girl. They obviously both make each other incredibly happy and there's nothing better than that."
Engagement rumors began swirling in October after the 'Annie' actress was photographed with a ring on that finger. Madden, 35, and Diaz, 42, first stepped out together in May -- after they were reportedly introduced by Madden's sister-in-law, Nicole Richie.
"I'm going to take responsibility for everything!" the fashion designed joked on 'Watch What Happens Live' (quote via Us Weekly).
And as for Diaz's views on marriage? While she points out in the Esquire interview that she wasn't sold on the idea for the past two decades ("I certainly didn't want it in my 20s. Or my 30s," she said) it definitely appears as if she has been more open about the notion in her 40s, hinting at the possibility even back then: "We'll see!"
Congratulations to Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden! While we're super psyched for their wedding, we have to admit: We may be even more excited about the fact that Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie will now be sisters-in-law.
Coolest. Family. Ever.
