 Matthew McConaughey is a father once again. On January 3rd, at 12:13 am, Sunday morning Matthew and Brazilian model and designer girlfriend Camila Alves, welcomed their second child, this time a baby girl whom they named Vida Alves McConaughey. 

The baby weighed in at 7lbs., 7oz.., The couple have two children together, a 17-month-old son, Levi who was born on July 7, 2008.   

The 41-year-old actor  excitedly announced on his website “Vida is Portuguese for ‘life’ and that’s what God gave us this morning.”   He added, “Camila's recovering wonderfully and we are both truly honored to welcome this little lady into our family," the devoted dad said. "Thanks for all of your well wishes and prayers along the way." Both baby and mother are doing well.
The actor has had many popular leading roles such as The Wedding Planner with co-star Jennifer Lopez, Sahara with Penelope Cruz , and We Are Marshall. In 2005 he was named “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine, and in 2006 he co-starred in the romantic comedy Failure To Launch. My personal favorite is the 1997 science fiction film, Contact with co-star Jodie Foster.
He has been cast to star as Thomas Magnum in the 2011 upcoming movie Magnum, P.I.   The actor resides in Malibu, California with his family.

Congratulations and all of our best wishes to Matthew and his new family.

    I loved him in Contact. It was a great role for him. He will make a perfect Tom Selleck - Magnum. I really liked that show!
