A huge congrats is in order for actress Cameron Diaz and Good Charlotte member Benji Madden because they just became first-time parents!

The couple announced on Friday (January 3) that they have welcomed their first child into the world, a baby girl named Raddix Madden. The new parents each shared an identical statement on their Instagram pages about the news.

“Happy New Year from the Maddens! 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 couple wrote.

But if you're expecting to see photos of their little one, you'll sadly just have to keep waiting as the new parents want to keep her life private. “While we are overjoyed to share this news, we also feel a strong instinct to protect our little one's privacy. 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. From our family to all of yours, we’re sending our love and best wishes for a Happy New Year and Happy New Decade.”

Last summer, Diaz opened up about her decision to quit acting and gushed about her husband's support. “He’s the greatest human being, and he’s my great partner. Marriage is certainly hard, and it’s a lot of work. You need somebody who’s willing to do the work with you, because there’s no 60-40 in marriage. It’s 50-50, period. All the time," she said. "I don’t know if I was ready [when I got married], but I knew Benji was special. He’s just a good man.”

Diaz, 47, and Madden, 40, tied the knot in 2015. Madden's twin brother, Joel, is married to Nicole Richie and they have two kids together, Harlow and Sparrow.

Congrats to the two of them!
