Could it be that 22-year-old Brazilian model Camila Alves and 38-year-old perpetually sweaty actor Matthew McConaughey really are a match made in heaven? The couple, who recently gave birth to a baby boy named Levi Alves McConaughey, are starting to convince us that they might make it, after all. The new parents opened up to OK! Magazine about finding out they were pregnant, how they plan to raise little Levi, and the importance of alone time. Their answers have us cynics kinda-sorta believing that they won't go the way of most Hollywood couples and split up before Levi celebrates his first birthday:
On if they planned the pregnancy:
Camila: "It was not an accident."
Matthew: "I was an accident! Levi was not."
Matthew on how Camila told him she was pregnant:
"She came home and said, 'I think you may want to open your best bottle of wine. I have a card for you.' We sat down. There was an ultrasound picture in the card. He was just a little tadpole. . . I had tears of joy and was not shocked or surprised, just overwhelmed. My first words were, 'It's a boy,' and without thinking, she said, 'I know.'"
Matthew on if he'll take Levi surfing:
"He'll be surfing next weekend. I can't wait to get him out there. All the new sights and sounds and smells are so great around here."
On if it's too soon to be thinking about more babies:
Camila: "Definitely too soon!"
Matthew: "I'm going to keep my mouth shut on that one. I think she just answered it."
Matthew on if they plan to get married:
"We're happy just how we are."
Matthew on their parenting styles:
"We're not going to play good cop, bad cop. The father can't say one thing and the mother, another. That's not good for the kids."
On finding alone time:
Matthew: "I'll still hopefully take solo surf trips. She'll take solo trips. Each one of us, myself, herself, and eventually Levi, it is very important that you have your own place. You have to play your solo."
Camila: "Even in the house, I have my space and he has his space."
Matthew: "It sure makes it that much more fun to meet in the kitchen later on and say, 'Hey, how was your day?'"
