Actress Cameron Diaz and Good Charlotte band member Benji Madden were one of Hollywood’s most unexpected couples but the pair have made it last, and for Diaz’s 46th birthday Madden shared a very sweet post.
“Happy Birthday Baby There’s so much to write, so many things that make me so proud of you and how special you are,” the 39-year-old began. “Thank you for being the best friend and partner to me and taking this journey of Marriage. The way you live your life everyday, and your compassion for the world shines thru in your eyes and you inspire me to want to be the best man I can be in this lifetime. You’re the realest. I’m so grateful to be yours Always&Forever, and to call you my One&Only. True Love.”
As fans know, Diaz has been living a life out of the spotlight for several years after last appearing in the 2014 movie remake of Annie.
“[Cameron and Benji] are great” and “both very happy living the quiet life,” a source told PEOPLE. “The quiet life she lives now with Benji, she wanted for a long time.”
Despite detracting from acting, Diaz released two books The Body Book in 2013 and The Longevity Book in 2016.
Madden and Diaz had a whirlwind relationship after they first met in the early summer of 2014 after being introduced by Diaz’s close friend and Madden’s sister-in-law Nicole Richie. They became engaged in late December and were married only 17 days later on January 5, 2015 seven months after they met.
