Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves welcomed their son Levi Alves McConaughey on Monday, July 7. In a statement, the new dad said that everyone is “tired and elated” and very happy.

By happy coincidence, Levi is our Name of the Day for tomorrow so check back for more in the morning.

  1. I can’t believe Matthew McConaughey (who my mother insists on calling Matthew Mc-conna-HAAY; she loves him) did a better job than Nicole Kidman! Very nicely done.

  2. Ha ha. I didn’t read the other comments before I posted mine. I went to a college with a girl named Kimmel who told everyone she was named for her dad’s favorite beer.

  3. Oooh, MM picked my name choice? Well, great minds think alike! A lovely choice for Matt and Camila.

  4. Yes, I heard speculation that the baby would be named something like Miller Lyte – apparently the name of his nephew.

    Had they continued the theme and had a girl, I suppose she could’ve been Stella Artois Alves McConaughey … and I found a link over at Nancy Callahan’s site suggesting Beck, Brewster, Foster and Killian as other brew-tastic monikers. Here’s the link:

  5. Levi Alves McConaughey, very nice job! Especially considering his family, I was a bit worried it would be something bizarre! Levi is awesome, and Mom’s maiden name in the middle is a nice touch. Overall, Kudoes to them and a huge Congratulations! Wonderful job! 🙂
