Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves Have a Baby

Camila and Matthew Welcome Levi Alves McConaughey!

Heartthrob Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves announced the birth of a baby boy yesterday. According to People, Levi Alves McConaughey met his parents face-to-face on Monday, July 7, at 6:22 p.m.

The proud new father explained the name Levi to OK!:

Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person. . . Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: 'If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'

In reference to the middle name, Matthew said, "We wanted to incorporate her [Camila's] family name."

It was a profound and life changing day for the couple. To see how the actor summed up his feelings,

Matthew summed up his feelings saying:

We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin'.

Levi shares his birthday with Sunday Rose Kidman Urban — daughter of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. Maybe the two tots will grow up teaching each other about surfing and singing.

Congratulations to Camila and Matthew!

But capugo... I live in Brazil too... (not in Rio)... And I don't think it's so common, I have a friend, and her second name is the surname of her mother, but I don't know so many people... I am not saying it is "strange" here, I am just saying it is not SO common as you said... I don't think it's "almost an offense here"... * Hahaha, Twinkle... so cool your avatar...

There's nothing new or odd about using the mother's maiden name as a middle name. Half my friends growing up had their mother's maiden or some other family surname as a middle name. Maybe it's a Southern thing. :shrug:

Suspiria, yes I really live in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro. I meant it was almost an offense here, at least. I know it's not common in some other countries, but here it is. The baby always gets mom's family name. It's just a different culture, i'm not saying it's right or wrong. ;)

Levi is a BEAUTIFUL name. capugo, what do you mean? Do you really live in Brazil? "it is almost an offense not to put the mother's name (...)"??? Maybe for you, but it's NOT common to give the child the mother's maiden name as a middle name.

I really like the name Levi and I think her last name is perfect as a middle name for their son.

That's great to read all the meaning behind it. When I first saw it, I was afraid they were naming him after jeans. Looking forward to seeing the tyke. I bet he's beautiful.

Here in Brasil it is almost an offense not to put the mother's name in the baby's name. It's not a trend, it is very traditional and ordinary. Levi is a great name, it's not going to sound strange here. My dad has a friend called Levi, actually :)

It is not a trend. My daughter is 8 and she has my maiden name as well as my husbands name.
