Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves welcome baby boy Livingston

Matthew McConaughey and his girl Camila Alves have welcomed their third baby after what felt like a three-month gestation. With some of these ladies, it feels like they’re pregnant for a year and a half, and then some of them seem to keep it under wraps successfully for a while. Anyway, they had a son, who will join big brother Levi and big sister Vida. Before I talk about this little boy’s name, some backstory… Matthew’s big breakout role was in Dazed & Confused, where his character’s life motto was “Just Keep Livin’”. As MM became more famous, he adopted the motto as his own, and his production company is called JK Livin and he has a foundation called JK Livin too. So what did he name his son? LIVINGSTON. As in, JK Livingston. LOL.

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are now the proud parents of another baby boy!

Though the spouses were rumored to have welcomed a baby girl, the Magic Mike actor set the record straight via Facebook Dec. 29.

“Camila Alves gave birth to our third child yesterday morning. Our son, Livingston Alves McConaughey, was born at 7:43 a.m on Dec. 28, 2012,” McConaughey wrote. “He greeted the world at 9 lbs. and 21 inches. Bless up and thank you for your well wishes.”

The couple’s new arrival joins older siblings Levi, 4, and Vida, 3.

McConaughey, 43, announced his wife’s pregnancy via Twitter July 4, just weeks after the couple tied the knot in Austin, Texas. Together since 2006, the couple swapped vows in front of several A-list pals, including Reese Witherpsoon and Woody Harrelson.

Several months into her third pregnancy, Brazilian model and handbag designer Alves, 30, told Us Weekly her two children were eager to welcome another sibling. “I think they fully understand that it’s a little baby coming,” she said in September. “They love it.”

Is it weird that I don’t hate the name? Granted, “Livingston” is a weird name for a baby, but I think the boy will grow into the name rather well. Especially if he ends up being called by a nickname, like (O I DON’T KNOW) “JK”. Levi and Livingston McConaughey… that sounds okay.

Anyway, congrats to Matthew and Camille!

    Congrats to them! Not wild about the name.

  3. Ms Kay says:

    Livingston… Levi… Vida…

    Shortcut for the 3 : Living LeVida…

  4. Jayna says:

    Not fond of the name. There’s nowhere to go with it as far as shortening it, but she always looks amazing pregnant.

  5. Ramona Q. says:

    “Just keep living” is something his father used to say to him. It’s very meaningful to him, not just from the movie. Maybe they will call the kid “Liv”.

  6. Granger says:

    Lovely family. But I’m not a fan of that name.

  7. Effy says:

    Congrats to them.
    Can the boy be called Liv for short?

  8. Kim says:

    Ston and Levi

  9. madpoe says:

    The name reminds me of the quote: “Dr. Livingston I presume”.

  10. FirstTimer says:

    Congratulations to Matthew and Camila and the kiddos!

  11. Christina says:

    Camilla Alves is one of the most ridiculously beautiful women I’ve ever seen. Even in (genuinely!) casual photos, wearing jeans and no make-up, she still looks gorgeous. Even the most hyped models look plain next to her.

  12. Cathy says:

    Congratulations to them both. I hope he’s happy and healthy.

  13. MG says:

    Congrats…don’t like the name…at all.

  14. jasmine says:

    livingroom’s next!

  15. Dawn says:

    Congrats! I am not sure about the name because it makes me think of Ron Livingston but as long as it works for them it’s fine.

  16. Jaxx says:

    Their genes blend really well, they do make lovely children. And yet, no one really talks about how cute their children are when celeb babes are mentioned. Yet, theirs are some of the most handsome. They keep a low profile, don’t they?

  17. MSMLNP says:

    These two seem so sketchy to me.

    But the kids are cute.

    • sirsly says:

      My thoughts exactly… I’ve always felt something’s really off with these two.

      Are they just an arrangement?

      (When couples have more than 2 kids they’re very often compensating for what’s missing in their own relationship)

    Livingston is my son’s middle name- i loved the name but my husband said there is no good nickname or way to shorten it, and I agree. But I love the name and hope it suits the little one nicely!

  19. Seanner says:

    Matthew is from Texas (like me), and Livingston is the name of a very popular lake (and the name of a town and a state park) here. I’m sure his son is named after the lake and not after “JK Living.” (I’ve been reading this blog since 2008, but this is the first time I’ve ever left a comment, haha).
