Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves

Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves

2006 - current

 

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves met in 2006 at a bar on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles. And although they were at least casually dating shortly thereafter – McConaughey appeared “sexy & single” on the cover of People Magazine in June 2007.

Camila’s strong presence on the set of Matthew’s 2008 film Surfer, Dudenot to mention all of her visits to the actor's Malibu trailer home - led to further speculation that their coupling up was, in fact, “the real deal.”

The first official confirmation of their relationship came on January 15th, 2008, when Matthew announced that he and Camila were expecting their first child. In true McConaughey fashion, the rambling statement read: "My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together. It's 3 months growin’ in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far. We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child, being mother and a father, and shepherding him or her through this life. Wish us the best, keep us in your prayers, and God bless evolution. Thanks for being fans of me and my work and now this new and miraculous chapter in my life, as me and Camila and our child do our best to just keep living." 

Camila gave birth to a boy on July 7th, 2008 in Los Angeles. Levi Alves McConaughey made his world debut a few weeks later - on the cover of OK! Magazine’s August 2008 issue.

A year later, on June 22nd, 2009, Matthew revealed the news of Camila’s second pregnancy – once again on his personal website. "Happy Father's Day. It's my first, and the last 11 months with Levi and Camila have been the most rewarding adventure to date," McConaughey wrote. "We have more blessed news to celebrate this Father's Day that [will] make this time next year double the fun. Levi is going to be a big brother... Yeah, we pulled off the greatest miracle in the world one more time, Camila and I are expecting our second child, bringing more life into the world, making more to live for. The future looks bright as the family grows.... just keep livin, Matthew and Camila."

Vida Alves McConaughey was born on Sunday, January 3rd, 2010. Taking inspiration from Alves’ Brazillian roots, the couple named her after the Portuguese word for life – later saying in a statement “that’s what God gave us this morning.”

Matthew made his bid to make Camila his wife on December 25th, 2011. He announced their engagement on Twitter the same day. Their wedding was held on June 9th, 2012 at their home in Austin, Texas.

A month later, on July 4th, 2012, the newlyweds announced via Twitter that they were expecting their third child together. And just like that, three days after Christmas, Camila gave birth to baby #3 on December 28th, 2012. They revealed his name – Livingston Alves McConaughey – the very next day.

As of February 23rd, 2015 – the Alves-McConaughey family has not revealed any plans for expanding their family any further, despite conflicting reports that Camila is actively hiding a fourth pregnancy from the press.
