Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves are expecting their third child

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are expecting their THIRD baby. They just got married on June 9th, in a backyard (with tents, y’all) wedding ceremony in Texas, and now I’m understanding why that ceremony felt a little rushed? I mean, I’m not judging. They already have two kids and they’ve been together since 2006. But the timing does seem a bit weird, like suddenly they want it to be legit… for the third kid? As I said, Camila and Matthew are already parents to Levi (3) and Vida (2). Both of the kids were in the wedding. And now we know the third kid was at the wedding too! So… congrats on the new addition!

Two weeks after tying the knot, Matthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves, have more exciting news to share: They’re expecting their third child!

“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.

I think it’s nice. It seems like the trend in Hollywood these days, to do big families. That’s coming from an only child, by the way – to me, “big family” means three or more kids. While I don’t think Camila and Matthew are Quiverfull people, but I do think they’re dirty hippies. And I mean that in a nice way!

By the way, like Bedhead, I saw Magic Mike over the weekend, and can I just say? Matthew was REALLY good in it. Like… he was better in this film than he’s been in any film I’ve seen of him over the past decade. When my mom and I were leaving the theater (yes, I took my mom to see it, and yes, she LOVES Channing Tatum and his beautiful ass), she said, “I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think Matthew should be nominated for an Oscar for that.” It’s kind of true. He was that good.

    Congrats! These 2 are procreating like bunnies!

    On a different note, People magazine have been getting the WORST paid-for wedding pics- here’s Matthew about to pick Camilla’s nose, before it was Drew Barrymore sniffing her finger…

    Congratulations on the wedding and the new baby.

  4. Boxy Lady says:

    I’m curious about what they will name this third kid since the others’ names have to with life or living (Levi is the anagram of live and Vida means life in Spanish). If they are continuing this theme, what other names could they pull from it?

  5. Samigirl says:

    That is so exciting! Yay for babies! Also, I agree MM was excellent in Magic Mike! Lord help me, I saw it again yesterday :-/

  6. Jayna says:

    He was great in it. He was also great in Lincoln Lawyer last year. It was the first time in years I saw the actor I once loved not playing the same shtick over and over in a rom-com.

  7. marie says:

    good for them, they make cute babies..

  8. Jordan says:

    I saw Magic Mike too and agree that Matthew was great in it. He definitely made it more entertaining.

  9. dorothy says:

    Love these two. What a great family.

  10. Jenna says:

    Good for them! But, didn’t Camila change her last name? So shouldn’t she be refered to as Camila McConaughey now? :)

  11. jferber says:

    I, too, thought Matt was the best thing in the film (he stole EVERY scene he was in) and I also thought of him being nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar. And, yes, Channing does have a fine ass. The “Kid,” though had no sizzle, no likeability, no nothing. I don’t think he added anything to the film, just an unnecessary distraction from Matt’s acting and Channing’s ass.

    I love MM. Have ever since Dazed & Confused. Even saw him as an actor in a re-enactment on Unsolved Mysteries! Haha.

    I wish him and his wife nothing but the most love and happiness in their life together.

    He rocked Magic Mike. I was waiting the whole movie for his dance sequence wondering if he would even get one and BAM! He was so awesome. I could see him getting some sort of nom for that role. Although I can’t help but feel like he was playing a little of himself :)

    Channing has a fine, fine ass. I am so envious of his wife. Matt B and Joe M were pretty good too except that they maybe said 20 words combined. Coulda used more of them :)

  13. Agnes says:

    wow, but i guess 3 kids isn’t a lot if you have a ton of money.

  14. Aqua says:

    I actually thought that Mathew would be one of those guys who would always live life foot loose and fancy free, you know, never settle down and having kids.I’m happy to admit I couldn’t have been more wrong.Congrats to everyone.

  15. stinky says:

  16. Divorcee says:

    Makeup sure works wonders since neither one is attractive.

  17. RHONYC says:

    Matt McCon is da man!

    unattached life on your own terms is so sweet (even a Hollywood A-lister can do it! lol).
