Cameron Diaz is reportedly considering having a baby with Benji Madden.
Up until now the 41-year-old actress has always insisted she isn’t that concerned with having a family, previously saying it’s never been the right time for her.
She has been dating musician Benji, 35, for a couple of months and they are so happy it’s apparently made her reconsider her stance on kids.
“Cameron is falling hard for Benji. She’s said that he could be The One and is hopeful that it will be long-term,” an insider told the American edition of OK! magazine
“Cameron’s not mucking around on this. She wants to be pregnant by the end of the year.”
The new couple have been spotted out together on dates and apparently have no problem going public with their romance. They have known each other for some times as Benji’s twin Joel is married to Cameron’s pal Nicole Richie, although things only took a romantic turn recently.
“Cameron knew Benji at a distance for years because of Nicole, but she’s never been attracted to tattooed rocker types. After getting to know him more intimately over recent months, she’s learnt that behind his bad-boy exterior is a very sweet, religious man. His confidence really drew her in,” the insider said.
Nicole is also said to be one of the reasons why Cameron is questioning her decision not to have children. The actress has seen firsthand how much being a mother has changed Nicole and is apparently impressed with how well she and Joel function as parents.
Benji also spends a lot of time with the family and has a close relationship with his niece Harlow and nephew Sparrow, which apparently makes Cameron “melt”.
The actress previously dated stars including Jared Leto, Justin Timberlake and sportsman Alex Rodriguez. Her relationship with Benji is said to be very different to what she’s known before, as he is so chilled out and happy for her to be the center of attentions.
“He’s top dog for baby daddy right now,” another source claimed to the publication. “In the past, most of the guys Cameron’s dated have been alpha males, but Benji is much more gentle and low-key. He’s self-assured enough that he can let Cameron shine, and that’s a huge turn-on for her.”
It’s even been claimed that the new couple have discussed eloping, although at the moment they are said to be concentrating on plans to set up home together.
