Cameron Diaz is opening up about being a mother to her and Benji Madden's six-month-old daughter Raddix. In an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actress, and new winemaker spoke about what life has been like with her baby.

"It’s been heaven, Jimmy,” Diaz said. She went on to say that she now understands why friends tell her to cherish every moment.

“Literally every single day, there’s just leaps and bounds … and she’s not the same baby that she was yesterday,” she said. “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.”

“But it’s so gratifying to actually get to see that growth and to be a part of it, and to let her be her," Diaz said. “It’s just amazing. It’s the best thing that ever happened to both Benj and I. We’re just so happy.”

She also admitted that her phone used to be full of her dog and her dog's poop but added that they are not of her child.
