Matthew McConaughey Announces His New Baby’s Name


Yesterday we learned that Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey welcomed their third child into the world on Friday. Sources claimed that Camila gave birth to a girl, but Matthew says otherwise! I’m kind of inclined to believe the guy who was there, so congrats on the new baby boy! A few of us were wondering what name Camila and Matthew would come up with; their older children are named Vida and Levi (great names, I think). Click inside to read Papa Matty’s birth announcement for his baby boy!

Here’s what Matthew posted to his Whosay account last night:

Camila (@iamcamilaalves) 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.

Well, hai Livingston! Welcome to the world!

And yeah, I love the ‘v’ trend in the names– Vida, Levi, and Livingston sounds pretty cute.

Thoughts on the new baby’s deets? Nine pounds is no joke! Kudos to Camila, lol! Here’s hoping she’s getting lots of rest right about now.

    Honestly – the first thing I think of is “Livingstone, New Jersey”. If I didn’t know that town name, I might have an easier time accepting the name. At least it’s not too far out there!

    • Kiki

      Woops, “Livingston, New Jersey”* Too early for me to be typing!

    • Shannon

      Kiki, oh yeah! I used to live in Orange, lol. Maybe SittingPat is right and it’s a shouts-out to his charity.

  • SittingPat

    I can’t help but think that baby#3’s name is inspired by the charity he heads, JustKeepLivin’. I wonder if they will call him, “Livin”? Bet they do.

    • Shannon

      SittingPat, oooh good theory! If so, then I think it’s the perfect name for him :)

  • ClaireMichelle

    My first thought is Ron Livingston, but I’m okay with it because I love him.

    • Shannon

      ClaireMichelle, lol. Ahhh, Office Space!

  • Joan

    Woah, that’s a big baby! I love this family. They are third on my adoption list, after The Obamas and The Jolie-Pitts.

    • Shannon

      Joan, I know right? I had an 8-pounder that nearly did me in, lol! Like I said, props to Camila! Good luck on your adoptions, lol :)

  • Diana

    Also Vida means life in Spanish, and LIVINGston. Does Levi mean life in any language?

    • Shannon

      Diana, I know Levi’s a Hebrew name. Looks like it means ‘attached’ or ‘joined in harmony.’

    • Sara

      Levi is an anagram of “live”.
