Update: Camila Alves & Matthew McConaughey Welcome Son Levi

Update: OK! reveals they have named their son — Levi Alves McConaughey.

Matthew explained to OK! how they came up with the name,

“Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person. 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.'” Baby Levi’s middle name is taken directly from his mother Camila’s last name. “We wanted to incorporate her family name.”

To their fans, they issued the following statement,

“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’.”

—Matthew David McConaughey and Camila Maria Saraiva de Araujo Alves

One of their friends said the new parents are very happy.

    I’m sure he’ll be cute as a button. It is so funny, because Nicole Kidman seems like she was never even pregnant while Camila Alves seems like she’s been pregnant forever!

    Owwwn….Levi is such a cute name!

    Is a name with a mean and it’s just beautiful!
    Isn’t a weird name, like Sunday or Honor…and it’s biblical!
    And I love the idea of the middle name taken from his mother, just like Suri…

    Here in Brazil is normal the son be named with both parent’s name, so I think that is cute.
