Despite the desire for privacy, fans have been speculating ever since the announcement dropped. Many believe that surrogacy was used, as Cameron admitted to using IVF for her first pregnancy and has become a mother quite late in her life. In spite of the toll such a decision might take on her, Cameron Diaz  has shown the willingness to focus all her attention on becoming a mother, retiring from her acting career three years after giving birth to her first child because she felt working full time hours kept her away too long from her child.

While happy for her successful family life, fans have been left feeling conflicted now that her acting career has fully come to a close.
