Christmas was extended for Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey who welcomed their third child, a boy on Friday. That is right the McConaughey’s ended 2012 with a brand new addition to their family.
People magazine broke the story that Matthew and his wife of less than a year have become parents for the third time. Their son was born yesterday morning in Austin Texas. Details of the new bundle of joy’s arrival had been kept private until now, including the name which was just revealed by the actor in the below Tweet.
“Camila gave birth to our third child yesterday morning. Our son, Livingston Alves McConaughey, was born at 7:43 a.m. on 12.28.12. “He greeted the world at 9 lbs., and 21 inches. Bless up and thank you for your well wishes.”
The actor who is pretty good about keeping his private life private kept the details of their son’s birth quiet for a whole day. I guess they were looking for some private time with their new little one. I am sure at some point a reputable magazine will showcase the family with their baby boy who joins big brother Levi, age 4 and big sister Vida, age 2. There were reports that the couple had had a daughter but turns out those were completely wrong. don’t you just love how social media is the way to announce things these days.
It has been quite the year for McConaughey who not only wed Alves earlier this year in a lavish but totally Southern wedding at their Austin, Texas home but has also dropped some serious weight for his new role in the upcoming movie “The Dallas Buyer’s Club.” The movie chronicles the story of a man dying of AIDS who helps bring HIV medication into the U.S. from Mexico. In fact his dramatic weight loss has caused speculation that he is too thin and that he could have a potential eating problem. However word on the street is that he is finally starting to pack back on the pounds. Although he isn’t even close to being in the shape he was for Magic Mike, he is starting to look like himself again.
Back around the 4th of July Matthew Tweeted that he and Camila were expecting their third child. The wait is over and their baby son was born on Friday. A big huge congrats goes out to the proud parents and big brother and sister as well.
