Matthew McConaughey, 38, and his girlfriend, Brazilian model Camila Alves, 28, are expecting a baby, the actor announced on his website.

“My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together,” he gushed. “It's 3 months grown in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far. We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child, being mother and a father, and shepherding him or her through this life.”

According to, his rep Alan Nierob said: “He is euphoric. He couldn't be happier.”

McConaughey's buddy, Surfer Dude producer Mark Gustawes, informs that the couple are “incredibly happy.”

The often-shirtless actor also wrote: “Wish us the best, keep us in your prayers, and God bless evolution. Thanks for being fans of me and my work and now this new and miraculous chapter in my life, as me and Camila and our child do our best to just keep living.” He ended his message with “Wow, McConaughey.”

The Wedding Planner star, who's also dated Spanish actress Penélope Cruz, met Alves over a year ago. They've been inseparable ever since.
