With his first son, Levi being just about 18 months old, Matthew McConaughey welcomes the New Year with a new addition – a baby girl! It was today, January 3, 2010 that Matt McConaughey and Camila Alves welcomed their second child, a daughter, to their growing family. Her name is Vida Alves McConaughey and as Matt explains, Vida means “life” in Portuguese. Levi and Vida. There’s just something beautiful-sounding about the two names, isn’t there? From US comes comments from Matt himself via his own website, as well as some of the families anxious comments in the days leading up to the birth. From US,
“Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves have welcomed their second child, a baby girl.
He announced on his website Sunday: “Happy New Year everybody!!! On Sunday, Jan. 3rd at 12:13am, Camila gave birth to a healthy 7lb. 7oz. baby girl named “Vida Alves McConaughey”…. Vida is Portuguese for “life” and that’s what God gave us this morning… Camila’s recovering wonderfully and we are both truly honored to welcome this little lady into our family… thanks for all your well wishes and prayers along the way. another blessed day. we give thanks. just keep livin, Matthew and Camila”
On Dec. 28, McConaughey’s mother Kay gushed to UsMagazine.com: “We have no idea when the baby is coming! The baby could come literally any minute. We are all waiting and very excited!”
Less than a year after the birth of their first son Levi, McConaughey, 40, announced this past June that he and his girlfriend were expecting again.
“We pulled off the greatest miracle in the world one more time,” he wrote on his website at the time. “The future looks bright as the family grows.”
In September, he blogged that he was amazed at how fast his son Levi was growing.
“He’s motoring around like [Olympic sprinter] Usain Bolt and eatin like [competitive eater Takeru] Kobayashi; Camila and I can barely keep up,” he wrote. “We call him the fruit bandit ’cause if there’s fruit out, he’s on it, takin it and eatin it.”
Added the actor, “He’s gettin bigger, more fun, smarter and craftier by the day.”
After Levi was born, Matt went from being this hippy surfer type to this fun loving dad, and a man who was all-consumed with his love for his family, while still being the hippy, surfer type. When his obsession with being a free spirit led him to do things such as bury Levi’s placenta in their orchard, I had my worries about Matt McConaughey. But, how can you not love this guy? He’s so cute and has such an adorable family. And if he wants to bury placentas, the more power to him. He’s not doing it in my backyard.
Congratulations to Matt, Camila, and Levi on the newest addition to your family!
