Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden want to adopt

They'd make such brilliant parents!

They've been married for three years and now Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have turned to adoption to make their dreams of having a child come true.

According to an exclusive report by Life & Style Cameron, 45, and Benji, 38, "have decided to try adoption and have started the process," a source reveals.

"They want to adopt from within the U.S. and are counting the days. Cameron is very hopeful. Though they are so fulfilled in every way, they feel this would complete their family."

"Cameron feels like the timing is right," the source continues.

"She's been asking friends about adoption and reading parenting books. It's taking time and they have been so patient, but they are both bursting with excitement."

They have the same vision for their growing family.

"Cameron and Benji would love a newborn and have both agreed they want a boy, but they of course will be happy with any healthy baby," the insider adds.

The past few years have been a trying time for Cam and Benji, who have struggled with reported fertility issues.

Now, with their baby plans set into motion and her loving husband by her side, Cameron couldn't be happier.

"This is what real love is," she gushed to Hello magazine last year. "This is what real commitment and devotion is. This is the person you build your life with."
