Even though Christmas tends to be a special event for most of us, for some these days have been even more important. For Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey, who got engaged, this Christmas marks the beginning of a new life.
Sunday, on Christmas day, Matthew McConaughey finally popped the question to his long long time girlfriend and mother of two children. Together they have a three year old son named Levi and a beautiful daughter, Vida, who will turn two years next January.
Matthew McConaughey announced his engagement on his WhoSay account and Twitter page, followed by a picture of the love birds kissing in front of a Christmas tree and topped by this message:”just asked camila to marry me, merry Christmas”.
It looks like this long time 42 years bachelor is finally settling down.
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves met back in 2006. It took five years of dating and two kids for the “Lincoln Lawyer”star to finally give up his careless life as a ladies man. If he hasn’t stole your heart by now, then you’d find McConaughey in romantic comedies such as “Dazed and Confused”, “A Time to Kill” and “Amistad”.
A lot of people might not know much about Camila Alves. Well, the girl who stole McConaughey’s heart is a 27 year old Brazilian model, actress and TV host. She is most famous for her hosting of season three of Shear Genius and her exquisite beauty.
During an interview with “Esquire” in March, McConaughey had complained he does not understand why the media is so interested in the reasons why him and Alves were not married yet.
He said: “I found the woman I wanna do it with, the woman I wanna make a family with, hopefully live our life out together”. He added: “She needs to have 50 percent of that. I mean, it’s a lot easier for me to be at 100 percent. I’d always been 100 percent. It’s braver for me at 50 percent”.
