Meeting the family: Benji Madden takes Cameron Diaz home


Benji Madden has reportedly taken Cameron Diaz to his hometown. The couple began dating this year and recent reports have suggested they’re moving at warp speed and are already discussing marriage. While those rumours have yet to be substantiated, E! News reports Benji recently invited Cameron to his hometown near Annapolis, Maryland earlier this month. The outlet claims the pair stopped by local haunt Kentmorr Restaurant for a bite to eat on August 10.

‘I'm just trying to let them have a nice quiet dinner, enjoy themselves and the sunset’ 

Owner Tammy Harper says it was “pretty cool” to see such big stars walk in.

"You have Cameron Diaz here and it's like a walking amusement park… I'm just trying to let them have a nice quiet dinner, enjoy themselves and the sunset,” she said.

Benji is apparently a popular and personable figure back at home. Tammy said the star knew several fellow diners from the area.

He also took to social media, posting a multitude of photos from the trip.

"Peace&Quiet #ChuckCounty #greetingsfromSoMD… Back Home #SoMd #oldBayOnEverything,” he captioned photos of farmland.

The visit comes just a few weeks after Benji and Cameron reportedly visited her family in Florida over America’s Fourth of July weekend.

"They flew into Orlando and then drove to Tampa where they met up for a reunion. It was a great vacation and they had a blast spending time with Cameron's nieces and nephews,” a source told E! News at the time.

The couple, who were introduced by Nicole Richie, who is married to Benji’s Twin brother Joel, have not commented on marriage rumours.
