Model, new mom, and partner of Matthew McConaughey, Camila Alves spoke with FAMEbaby about Matthew, her labor, and their social life post baby.
Being named The Sexiest Man Alive, doesn’t phase Camila in the least,
“He’s a man – he’s my man – and we’re a family. He’s the best dad he can be, 100-percent hands-on.”
Camila also opens up about her labor,
“It wasn’t such a pleasant experience,” she says. “We went through 14 hours with contractions every two minutes, no epidural, no nothing. Every two minutes I would pass out. I went to the hospital on Saturday, and Levi was born on Monday.”
Despite her desire to give birth naturally, Alves underwent a C-section,
“We tried every single way of giving birth. It didn’t work. I wasn’t too crazy about having to do a C-section and take all the drugs. Finally, I just had to be like, ‘Let it go.’ ” And finally, Levi was born at 6:22 p.m. July 7, at 7 lbs., 4 oz.
Camila also explains how she, Matthew and Levi have adapted to their new social life,
“All the excitement is no problem for Levi, Alves says. “If our lifestyle was doing anything to harm him, we’d have to adapt, but he loves it. He loves the action. He loves to be right in the middle of it. He actually doesn’t like it when it’s too quiet.”
Camila and Matthew have decided to raise Levi to be bilingual,
“Most of my family doesn’t speak English. It’s so important for the baby. He’s going to know all his American roots, but he also needs to know about his Brazilian side.”
Camila is designing a new hand bag collection for Muxo, which will include diaper bags. McConaughey has just completed the Malibu Triathilon with fellow Wedding Planner co-star Jennifer Lopez.
