Matthew Mcconaughey - Mcconaughey And Alves Marrying For The Kids
Recently-engaged actor Matthew Mcconaughey decided to make it official with the mother of his children Camila Alves so the family could all share the same last name.
The couple has been dating for over six years and has two children together - son Levi, three, and daughter Vida, two.
MCConaughey proposed in December (11), but the Brazilian model insists marriage won't change their relationship - they're just doing it for the sake of their kids.
She tells ET Canada, "A lot of people, sometimes they're so stuck on, 'I gotta get married, I gotta get married.' They forget that the really important thing... is to have a healthy home, a healthy family, a healthy environment for your kids and to have everything going in a good, peaceful way...
"I think it's great for the kids. Levi actually understands what it means now that Mama's going to have the same last name as they have, so that's neat."
However, Alves insists she's not in a rush to get to the alter just yet: "I really haven't thought much about the wedding. We just got a new home, it's just been really busy. I'm just really enjoying being engaged."
