It’s official people, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are officially Mr and Mrs! Cameron, 42, and Benji, 35, have reportedly tied the knot at their home in LA in a star-studded wedding ceremony.
“We couldn’t be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends,” the newlyweds told People magazine.
This whirlwind wedding comes after the pair got engaged in December 2014, following a seventh-month romance which reportedly saw both parties become quickly smitten. They were set up by Benji’s sister-in-law, Nicole Richie, and were first spotted out and about together in May, with Benji reportedly meeting the parents just two months later.
Rumours of a speedy engagement first started whirling in October, when Cameron was snapped wearing a ring on that finger.
According to first reports, there were loads of famous people in attendance at Benji and Cameron’s wedding, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon. The bridal party was fittingly star-studded; with Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore, Cam’s sister, Chimene, and her assistant, Jessica Lutz, serving as bridesmaids. Benji’s nephew Sparrow acted as ring bearer.
Benji was previously engaged to Sophie Monk in 2007, and has also been linked to Paris Hilton and Holly Madison. Cameron was in a relationship with Justin Timberlake for four years, and has also dated Hollywood hottie Jared Leto and baseballer Alex Rodriguez.
Cameron spoke about her view on good relationships just weeks before Benji popped the question at the end of last year: “You can just tell when people are good partners to one another and are kind to one another and compassionate and generous and thoughtful,” she said. “I think that’s a really nice thing and you can see that,” Cameron added. “Because you can also see what people don’t think about their partners [laughs] and aren’t kind, aren’t generous. I think it’s obvious.”
Congrats to Cameron and her new hubby, Benji!
