Matthew McConaughey married his longtime girlfriend Camila Alves just two weeks ago. The couple already have two children together, and today we’re learning that Camila is pregnant again!
“Happy birthday America, more good news,” the Magic Mike actor, 42, tweeted on Wednesday’s July 4th holiday. “Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep liven.”
The couple’s new arrival will join big brother, Levi, 3, and big sister, Vida, 2.
Together since 2006 after meeting in a Los Angeles bar, the actor and his Brazilian-born model love got engaged on Christmas Day in 2011 and said their “I do’s” on June 10. Setting up a makeshift campground on their Austin, Texas property, the pair invited their children to take part in the ceremony.
“Levi brought the rings on a necklace. Vida was the flower girl,” McConaughey later revealed on NBC’s TODAY. “I don’t think she dropped one petal.”
Though they’re over the moon about being married, the expectant parents were in no initial rush to walk down the aisle.
“We’ve been living a married life for over six years now,” the new bride, 30, explained. “We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we’ve built a life together. So we’ve been living a married life this whole time.”
“A lot of people, sometimes they’re so stuck on ‘I gotta get married, I gotta get married,’ that they forget that the really important thing is to have a healthy home, a healthy family, a healthy family for your kids and to have everything going in a good, peaceful way,” she continued.
More power to them! If I could figure out how to afford another child, I’d have another one. I always thought I’d have three children (I come from a family of three kids), because I think we want what we were raised with, right?
I went and saw ‘Magic Mike’ on opening night, and it was a blast! I went with a group of 7 girls, and we saw it in a sold-out theater of ALL WOMEN. Okay, I think I saw maybe 3-4 boyfriends there, but they stuck out like a sore thumb. It was as if our audience was watching the Chippendales or something. Women screaming, hooting and hollering (I won’t tell you if I did any of the above). It was just a FUN movie. And the nice part is – it was actually a GOOD movie as well. It could have been soooooooo bad, but it wasn’t! Matthew McConaughey did amazing. In fact, I’m pretty sure he’s never done better in any other movie. Him half naked- and playing the owner of a strip club seemed to suit him just fine. PLUS – the man has NEVER looked better, not even in his “Time to Kill” days, which in my opinion WAS his hottest movie ever. Also; Channing Tatum wasn’t hard on the eyes either. It was just a good, fun movie.
How many of you saw it? What did you think?
I think I’m sneaking out to see Katy Perry’s movie tonight – equally excited!
