Matthew McConaughey, 38, and his longtime girlfriend, Camila Alves, 25, are welcoming their new son into the world. The baby was born 6:22 pm in Los Angeles. He weighed 7 pounds and 4 ounces. This is the first child for each of them. They gave the baby the name Levi Alves McConaughey.

Alves is a Brazillian model and the designer of the handbag line Muxo. Matthew McConaughey was People Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ in 2005.

McConaughey’s brother, Rooster, 54, told People magazine, “He’s probably a bit tired right now, probably been sitting around that hospital just staring at the little guy.” Rooster has two children of his own, one that is named Miller Lyte (as in the beer) Rooster says he is certain that his brother will be a good father. “That guy is going to make one helluva dad,” he says.

Actor, McConaughey’s Mom, Kay McConaughey said that baby Levi will probably be the first of many for Matthew and Camila. She says her son loves children. She says, “Can’t you just see it? Matthew with his surfboard walking the beach with a gang of kids following him with their surfboards saying, ‘We’re coming Papa!”

She says Matthew is over the moon. Since men are now allowed to go in the room with the woman giving birth, her son can now see just how strong Camila really is. Matthew he loves Camila. Kay laughed as she warned family and friends not to bother buying the baby clothes. She suggests just getting him some flip-flops and a bathing suit. She says, “You know that kid’s not going to be wearing a lot of clothes.”

“Camila and I were side by side the entire time,” Matthew told OK! Magazine. “We are both tired and elated, and are so happy to have created the created miracle in the world – having a child and making a family. Now comes the greatest adventure, raising one, together.”

Congratulations to both Matthew and Camila on the birth of their baby boy!
