Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves have selected a name for their newborn son, who made his World Debut Monday evening in Los Angeles. Introducing Levi Alves McConaughy.
“We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin’.”

Matt and Cam put a lot of thought into their little boy’s lifelong moniker:
“Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person,” Matt explains.
“Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: ‘If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'”
The baby’s middle name is taken from his mother’s last name: “We wanted to incorporate her family name,” Matt beams.
