Cameron Diaz’s ‘pregnancy struggle’

Cameron Diaz is “doing everything she can to get pregnant”, according to reports.

The 42-year-old actress married 36-year-old musician Benji Madden back in January after a whirlwind romance.

And despite previously claiming she had “never been drawn to being a mother”, it seems Cameron is now keen to start a family with her spouse.

“She is doing everything she can to get pregnant, like working out and eating fertility-boosting foods, and she’s even resorted to scheduling sex,” a source told Life & Style Weekly magazine. “But it’s not happening, and she’s freaking out!”

It doesn’t help that Benji’s twin brother Joel is father to two children with wife Nicole Richie, who is actually responsible for introducing Cameron and Benji.

Cameron is now said to be considering medical intervention as she is worried she is starting to run out of time to conceive.

“If Cam doesn’t get pregnant this month, she’s going to see a fertility specialist,” the source added.

Back in July 2014, Cameron insisted she had never imagined parenthood as part of her future.

In the interview with Esquire magazine, the former Knight and Day actress said it was the responsibility of becoming a mother that turned her off of the prospect.

“It’s so much more work to have children. To have lives besides your own that you are responsible for—I didn’t take that on. That did make things easier for me,” she told the American edition of the magazine. “A baby— that’s all day, every day for 18 years. I like protecting people, but I was never drawn to being a mother.”
