Cameron Diaz is looking on the bright side when it comes to parenting during the coronavirus pandemic.

The actress (and wine connoisseur) made an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Tuesday, where she discussed parenting daughter Raddix alongside husband Benji Madden while quarantining.

"Before my baby was an excuse to stay home, now I don't have to make that excuse," she said. "It's just what it is. I get to be with her."

She added that an unexpected silver lining of isolation is that Madden, who has been writing songs for their daughter, gets to have more time at home.

"The best part of it for having to stay within our little bubble within this COVID situation is that her dad, my husband Benji, he gets to be home," she said. "He works from home. So he gets to be with her as much as I do — well, not as much because he's working all day long — but he actually gets to come out of a meeting and give her a kiss and play with her for a little bit, whereas if he was going to the office every day, he wouldn't have been able to do that. So we're just having a lot of gratitude for that."

Diaz and Madden announced the birth of their daughter in an Instagram post back in March. In an interview earlier this month, Diaz gushed about motherhood, calling it "heaven."

“Literally every single day, there’s just leaps and bounds … and she’s not the same baby that she was yesterday,” she said at the time. “Where was yesterday? Yesterday is literally gone, and today is a new day, and tomorrow will be a new day that she’s a completely different baby.”
