Matthew Mcconaughey - Alves Puts Family Commitments Before Modelling Career

Matthew Mcconaughey's fiancee Camila Alves regularly turns down modelling jobs in exotic locations because she can't bear to spend time away from her husband-to-be and their two children.
The Brazilian beauty and TV personality used to be a runway regular before she settled down with the Sahara hunk in his native Texas - and she's still inundated with lucrative offers to jet off for work abroad.
But Alves, who now has her own range of handbags, has decided to put her priorities as a mother to three-year-old son Levi and two-year-old daughter Vida ahead of her career, so she can keep her family together as a "unit".
She tells PR.com, "I have to always choose what I do because usually everything comes around at the same time. If I have to do a trip to New York for (home shopping channel) Qvc to go on the air, I'll get a call that I have a modelling job in Spain or Brazil or somewhere, and Matthew will then get a call that he has to go to work. Things always happen at the same time.
"One thing I have learned in my life is to put the weight into what I need to do. My main priority right now is my family and that includes when Matthew is working. We all go on the road together. We really try to keep (together) as a unit. If he's working, the whole family goes together. That means we all move, we all get on the road.
"I know I have to go to Qvc certain times during the year; I know I have development meetings; I know I have designing work. When I know that I am already getting away from my family so much (sic), being a mother and a wife-to-be, I can't take the modelling jobs because I will be gone for too long."
