Benji Madden and Cameron Diaz are about to reach a big milestone in their marriage.
The former Good Charlotte rocker posted a sweet poem about his wife on Instagram on Saturday, just two days after their 8th wedding anniversary.
“In Love, Inspired, Happy and Grateful. 8 years married, side by side, and now a little one for us to guide?,” Madden began. “let’s do 80 more and then forever ❤️❤️❤️ happy anniversary 1•5•✨@camerondiaz my ❤️❤️???.”
Along with the poem was a painting by the actor, who is 43 years old and often uses his paintings to honor the actress, who is 50 years old.
The couple’s family and friends left comments on the anniversary post. Madden’s twin brother, Joel, left three red heart emojis, and Gwyneth Paltrow wrote, “Love you both so much.”
Diaz and Madden got married in a secret ceremony in 2015. They are mostly private about their relationship, but they have told fans a few things about how they met and fell in love over the years. Most recently, Diaz was on The Drew Barrymore Show in November. The actress had just come out of retirement and talked about one of the first meals she made for her now-husband when they were dating.
“We get home from this two-day immersive course on Northern and Southern Italian cooking, and you are about to go on a date with Benji,” Barrymore recalled.
“Yes, I was,” Diaz confirmed.
“And we had talked about it all weekend and I drove you to a grocery store, so pregnant I stayed in the car, and you went inside,” the TV host continued. “What was the dish you made him that night? I’m gonna let you tell it. I remember it clear as day.”
Diaz made a delicious meal of lamb chops with a special touch: she added shallot gold, which was Barrymore’s favorite and one of Diaz’s favorite ways to add flavor.
“Lamb chops. Mediterranean lamb chops, some couscous, and some broccoli and sautéed zucchini,” Diaz shared. “I put shallot gold inside the couscous.”
“Do you see what I’m saying!” an excited Barrymore said to the audience.
Not only do they both like food, but they are also proud parents of a three-year-old! Raddix was born at the end of 2019 to Diaz and Madden.
