Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are enjoying time at home with their 3-month-old daughter Raddix, a source tells PEOPLE in this week's issue
As a family source tells PEOPLE of the spouses, “They love being parents. This is their full-time job and they just want to be with their daughter.”
“As new parents, they always felt very protective about Raddix. In the beginning, it was more like they wanted to protect her privacy and [didn’t want] her to be photographed. Now, their No. 1 concern is for everyone to stay healthy,” says the source.

“I love being a mother. It’s the best, best, best part of my life,” Diaz said. “I’m so, so grateful and so happy and it’s the best thing ever and I’m so lucky to get to do it with Benji and we’re just having the best time.”

The couple shared the happy news of their daughter’s arrival on social media in early January, writing, “We are so happy, blessed and grateful to begin this new decade by announcing the birth of our daughter, Raddix Madden. She has instantly captured our hearts and completed our family.”
The new parents also went on to say that while they “are overjoyed to share this news” they “also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one’s privacy” — and as such would not “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,” they wrote, signing off the post, “Sincerely, Cameron&Benj” with a red heart emoji.
