"It's very funny because people see him onscreen or out there in public in a certain way, and they have this vision of him being this romantic and so passionate... And sometimes I'm like, 'Who is this guy? Can you be a little bit of that?' Sometimes I'm like, 'Can we bring that guy home for a little bit?" Matthew Mcconaughey's wife Camila Alves admits the movie hunk isn't as romantic as his characters in movies like The Wedding Planner and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.
The movie star's wife Camila Alves gave birth to son Livingston, a sibling for their two kids, Levi, four, and two-year-old Vida.
McConaughey announced the pregnancy news in a Twitter.com post in July (12), a month after he and Alves wed, and he returned to the site on Saturday (29Dec12) to tell fans about the family's new arrival.
In a post, he writes, "Camila gave birth to our third child yesterday morning. Our son, Livingston Alves McConaughey was born at 7:43am on 12.28.12. He greeted the world at 9lbs. and 21 inches. Bless up and thank you for your well wishes. Happy New year, and just keep livin, Camila and Matthew McConaughey."
The Georgia capital's community of authentic domestics — in other words, the Real Housewives of Atlanta — is going to be welcoming a new resident in the coming months: series star Phaedra Parks, a self-dubbed "Southern belle," has announced her pregnancy, as reported by People.
This will be the second child for Parks, a fixture on the Bravo! reality show since its third season, and her husband Apollo Nida. The pair, who have been together since 1995, welcomed son Ayden in 2010.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is presently in its fifth season on Bravo, with its final episode of the calendar year scheduled for Sunday night.

The year of 2012 has been a colorful one for ol' Matthew McConaughey. He put a murderer behind bars in Bernie. He evaded the long arm of the law in Mud. He turned shirtlessness into a religion with Magic Mike. And now, the actor is capping off the year by playing the greatest role of them all: father. McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves welcomed their third child together on Friday in Austin, TX, as reported by People. At the time of publication, reps for McConaughey and Alves have not answered Hollywood.com's request for confirmation.
The news of Alves' pregnancy broke over the summer, not long after the release of McConaughey's aforementioned male stripper picture (making the season one of high celebration for McConaughey fans worldwide).
McConaughey and Alves have been dating since 2007, and have a son Levi, 4, and a daughter Viva, 2, in addition to their new baby.

The movie star's wife Camila Alves gave birth on Friday morning (28Dec12) at a hospital in Austin, Texas, reports TMZ.com.
McConaughey first announced the news his partner was pregnant in a tweet back in July (12) - a month after he and Alves wed.
The couple has been dating since 2006. McConaughey and Alves already have two kids, Levi, four, and two-year-old Vida.
Details of the newborn's sex and name were not available when WENN went to press.
"Pregnant and sick... not a good combination! But all these beautiful fashions on the Emmys red carpet are cheering me up a little!" Matthew Mcconaughey's expectant wife Camila Alves found her spirits boosted by the televised Los Angeles prizegiving on Sunday (23Sep12).
The Brazilian model admits she didn't recognise her future husband when they first started chatting at a nightclub in Los Angeles called Hyde Lounge because he looked so different to his onscreen persona.
She tells Access Hollywood, "We met at Hyde, of all places. We had two interactions at the bar. The first interaction, I did not know who he was. At the time he had a really long beard, and he had this rasta hat. He was all covered up, and I didn't really realise who he was."
The couple married in June (12) and Alves is currently expecting their third child together.
"The boring answer is I'm gonna do some renovations, put a pool in the house - that's gonna take a bit of it... The kids want a pool, in the summertime." Actor Matthew Mcconaughey is hoping to build an underground pool at his Texas ranch with his pay cheque from saucy film Magic Mike. The star has two children, Levi, four, and Vida, two, and his wife Camila Alves is pregnant with a third.
Killer Joe opens this weekend and if you think you’re being dragged to yet another gory slasher flick, or you’re hoping to see Matthew McConaughey star in a white-trash version of Magic Mike, please hear my warning: you couldn’t be more wrong.
When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) finds himself in debt to a drug lord, his brilliant money-making solution is to find someone to kill his mother, so he can collect her hefty $50,000 life insurance policy. Enter McConaughey as Joe Cooper, a cringe-worthy Dallas Detective who also moonlights as a pricey hit man. After learning that “Killer Joe’s” fee is 25K in advance, Chris offers up his virgin little sister Dottie (Juno Temple) as a placeholder, and is later appalled at the strong bond the two outcasts have formed.
Killer Joe boasts an NC-17 rating, but it is extremely difficult to place the film into a specific genre. The brutal and extremely vivid fight scenes will make your stomach churn and instantly throw the film into the drama/horror bin. However, the blunt dialogue and trailer park etiquette provoke chuckles that have one instantly questioning whether or not you should have actually laughed at that, i.e. an awkward comedy.
“The film is very deliberately and cheerfully amoral,” says Matthew McConaughey at a roundtable interview in Los Angeles. After starring in this summer’s sexiest stripper blockbuster, many reporters in the room were baffled to see McConaughey take on such an intensely twisted character. Surprisingly, the newlywed actor had a similar reaction to Killer Joe after his first glimpse at the script.
“In my first read I was disgusted. I remember throwing it in the trash and going and taking a shower and wishing I had a steal brush.” The Magic Mike actor reveals, “I gave it two days and let it get out of my system and I read it again and I found myself sort of starting to chuckle and then a few laughs and then I started to really see the hilarity in it.”
Emile Hirsch echoed McConaughey’s mixed reactions to the film, “There was definitely a side of me that kind of took glee in the kind of craziness of it. As soon as I realized that there was a comedic element, I was able to like it.” Hirsh continues, “It definitely made me cringe… I mean you’re reading this thinking it’s this really straight-forward drama and then there’s this chicken bone scene where I’m like ‘Well that’s so weird for a drama to have, that’s so odd.’”
This “chicken bone scene” that Hirsh is referring to is one of the final and most horrifyingly uncomfortable scenes in the movie. Don't worry, no spoilers, but prepare to have a newfound disgust towards fried chicken that will take a couple of weeks in the fetal position and a restraining order against Colonel Sanders to get over.
Did the actors share the poultry nightmares? McConaughey seems to have a stronger stomach. “I’m more of a fan now.” While Hirsch had a more appropriate reaction saying, “I’m a big fan of K Fried C, but there may [need to] be a rehabilitation program to get me back on the chicken.”
Chicken woes aside, this film has such a provocative and unique plot that whether or not you hate it or love it, one thing is for sure: you’re definitely going to remember it. McConaughey concludes, “I thought it was going to be a 50/50 split with some people just abhorred and some people going ‘It’s a riot I love it!’ But I’ve noticed that 90 percent are abhorred and love it and going ‘Oh my god what the eff was that?!’”
It seems like Killer Joe’s publicity team already knew that audiences would have difficulty digesting and explaining this flick, so they came up with this gem of a description: “A totally twisted deep-fried, Texas redneck trailer park murder story.” Yeah, that just about sums it up perfectly.
Killer Joe hits select theaters this Friday, July 27.
