Cameron Diaz looked radiant in black at the Academy’s Hollywood Costume luncheon in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Oct. 8, flashing a new accessory — a gold and diamond ring. The Sex Tape actress’ new bling has sparked rumors of a possible engagement to boyfriend Benji Madden.
Although it’s unclear if rocker Madden, 35, did indeed pop the question with the unique ring, one person in particular who would be ecstatic is Diaz’s mom, Billie.
A source recently told Us Weekly that the blonde’s mom couldn’t be happier with the rocker. “Billie has been gushing about Cameron’s new relationship,” the insider said. “She absolutely loves Benji and she hopes this is the man her daughter will finally settle down with.”
Diaz, 42, who previously dated Justin Timberlake and Alex Rodriguez, among others, first stepped out with the Good Charlotte rocker in May. At the time, another source told Us that it was Benji’s twin brother Joel Madden‘s wife Nicole Richie that set the pair up. “Nicole thought they’d click,” the source told Us.
In an interview with Australian radio station Nova FM in June, Benji said he’s “lucky” to be dating Diaz. The couple then jetted off to Florida a month later, where Benji met Diaz’s family for the first time.
The leggy blonde, however, has been dismissing the concept of marriage for years.
“I think the big misconception in our society is that we’re supposed to meet the one when we’re 18 and we’re supposed to get married to them and love them for the rest of our lives. Bulls–t,” she told UK’s Stylist magazine in 2010. “Have someone for five years and another person for another five years… Life is long and lucky and yes, love might last forever, but you don’t always live with the person you love forever.”
