Cameron Diaz and rocker Benji Madden engaged


After weeks of engagement rumours, it is now official that Cameron Diaz is off the market and set to tie the knot.

The blonde actress’ engagement with Benji Madden after less than a year of dating has been confirmed by People magazine.

The evidence amid the rumours was the diamond ring Diaz was wearing while spotted with Madden when the two were reportedly heading through JFK airport in New York last week.

The actress and the rocker started their relationship in May, and, according to the Daily Mail, they are planning to get married next year.

Earlier this month, she opened up about her opinion regarding relationships during an interview with Cosmopolitan, though she made no reference to her potential wedding with Madden.

“You have to find someone in the same place as you are. Timing is everything”, Diaz told the magazine. “If you get into a relationship where you want something the guy doesn’t want, it’s never gonna work. You’re never going to get him to be in that place. No matter how old you are, finding the guy who’s in the same place as you are and wants to show up is the only way a relationship works, period”.

The magazine also quotes the actress speaking out about her mistakes in her past relationships with Jared Leto, Alex Rodriguez and Justin Timberlake. “Here’s the thing”, she continued. “You make the same mistake over and over again until you learn your lesson. We girls sometimes do the thing where we pick the same person over and over again – they look and seem different, but deep down, they’re the same. And that’s on us”.

But that belongs in the past. The beautiful, smiling actress is now happy and officially engaged.
