Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden


Cameron Diaz said just last year that she could "have a kid any second" if she wanted.

So, perhaps that time is now.

The Annie star married Benji Madden last night at what is now the home they share in Beverly Hills after barely nine months of togetherness, including their weeks-long engagement. So what was the rush? Other than a severe case of being over the moon, of course?

A source tells E! News that Diaz wants to be a mom—and, in case their whirlwind wedding wasn't enough of an indicator, Madden is totally on board with that.

"She told Benji she really wants a baby," the insider said. "And he said, ‘Well, marry me.' He's old-fashioned...Marriage was important to him."

How sweet is Madden?!

And so it became important to Diaz, too, after the actress had repeatedly said over the years that she felt no pressure to get married just because others had chosen that path for themselves.

As for having kids, she told the U.K.'s Telegraph last April that she could have a child any old time she wanted—and that she didn't feel "childless" in the meantime.

"I've never said never to anything in life," Diaz said. "If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them. But I'm certain that if at any point I wanted a child, that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption, or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child."

"I can't see the future, but one thing I do know is that I'm not childless," she added. "I have a ton of children in my life. I can have a kid any second, if I want. All my friends would be like, 'Sure, come and get them.'

"I also, by the way, have a lot of girl friends who don't have children. It's not like I'm the spinster who didn't have a child. I just didn't do that in life, and I'm OK with that. I know the choices I made. I know why I made them. I'm very much a person who lives in the moment. When you come from where I do, there are so many ways my life could have gone."

And now that her life has gone this way...

Our source told us, "I definitely think she's going to get pregnant right away. I would not be surprised if they're already trying."

Here's wishing the newlyweds all the best in their endeavors!
