Matthew & Camila’s Son, Levi

The oldest child of the family is their sonLevi Alves McConaughey, 15, who was born in 2008. Levi came into the picture about four years prior to his parents nuptials. He is much like his dad and enjoys surfing and spending time outdoors. Most recently, Matthew took to Instagram to show off Levi’s surfing “souvenirs” on Mar. 2, 2023. “surf souvenirs,” he captioned the photo of the teen’s bandaged back. Ouch! Camila also shared an adorable photo of the 53-year-old cutting his son’s hair on Feb. 26, 2023. “Then this happened…,” she captioned the hilarious snapshot.

Matthew & Camila’s Daughter, Vida

Two years before Matthew and the brunette bombshell tied the knot, they welcomed their daughterVida Alves McConaughey, 13, in 2010. Vida is the only girl of the the McConaughey-Alves crew, which makes her the ultimate daddy’s girl. In Oct. 2020, the Greenlights author opened up about fatherhood to PEOPLE. “The only thing I ever knew I wanted to be was a father,” he told the outlet at the time. “And it’s remained the pinnacle for me. Being a dad was always my only dream. … I can’t think of anything being more important.”

He loves being a dad so much, he even posted a photo with all of his kids on the beach for Father’s Day in June 2020. “with reverence #fathersday,” he captioned the sweet snapshot. Earlier, he shared a swoon-worthy photo of Camila sharing a big group hug with all of the kids for Mother’s Day. “the root of the family – mommas – ⁠ @camilamcconaughey #happymothersday,” he captioned the post. So cute!

The Actor’s Youngest Son, Livingston

Finally, their family is complete with their youngest boy, Livingston Alves McConaughey, 10, who was born in 2012. Notably, Livingston was born the same year that the duo got married, and clearly was the best wedding gift that year! Most recently, Matthew took to Instagram to share an adorable moment of him hiking with the 10-year-old on Mar. 10, 2023. “son up to sun down,” he captioned the breathtaking photo.

In June 2020, Matthew spoke to Town & Country about his and Camila’s parenting style. “Sometimes loving your kids means giving them just what they want. Other times, it means tough love,” he shared at the time. “Affluent people can give their kids everything they want, but they’re not usually going to get what they need. Loving a child is a lot harder if you really give a damn.”

Prior to that, he shared that being a dad has taught him over the years, during a 2013 interview with PEOPLE. “What you learn when you have kids is that they think four-dimensionally,” Matthew said. “I’ll tell them the story about a cheetah that ran and became friends with a horse and then a river came through and they were separated. Then I’ll go, ‘The end.’ But Levi [replies], ‘Well no, the cheetah grew wings and flew back over the river.’ There’s no ending, so it’s on and on and on!”
