Matthew McConaughey, Camila Alves welcome baby No. 2

January 4, 2010 |  9:27 am

Matt camila Matthew McConaughey is a baby daddy times two, with his girlfriend, Camila Alves. Early Sunday morning, Vida Alves McConaughey joined brother Levi, weighing in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces.

On his website, the actor confirmed: "'Vida' is Portuguese for 'life' and that's what God gave us this morning ... Camila's recovering wonderfully and we are both truly honored to welcome this little lady into our family ... thanks for all of your well wishes and prayers along the way, another blessed day, we give thanks, just keep living, Matthew and Camila."

The couple — he's 40, and she's 26 — didn't know if it was a boy or a girl until Vida was born. Levi was born July 7, 2008; McConaughey announced the second pregnancy on his blog on Father's Day.

We assume they are still "stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation," as they were for Levi's birth. 

Happy baby to all.
