In a recent interview, celebrated actor Matthew McConaughey opened up about his three beautiful children, whom he shares with his wife, Camila Alves.


Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves exchanged their wedding vows in 2012 in a private Catholic ceremony in Austin, Texas. They are blessed with three children, Levi, Vida, and Livingston.

The award-winning actor marveled over the "privilege and responsibility" he feels raising his beautiful and talented children during an interview with PEOPLE.

In mid-October, McConaughey told the publication that the one thing he has always dreamed of becoming was a father. He added that it has remained the "pinnacle" for him. The "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" actor continued:

"Being a dad was always my only dream. I can't think of anything being more important."


McConaughey also shared in the interview that he is fortunate and confident to say that Levi, Vida, and Livingston do not question the love they have in their family.


The charming kids are still young, but according to the actor, they already have a rich imagination. The young trio are deeply interested in photography, McConaughey said.

While isolating in the midst of the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, the children spent much time honing their talents, the actor added.

McConaughey has an incredible bond with his children.


Back in June, the doting father said in an interview that he and his wife Alves were giving their offsprings "tough love" to teach them what is right and wrong.

McConaughey has an incredible bond with his children. In fact, he even takes them any place he goes for work. According to the actor, having them around is anything but stressful because they listen to him most of the time.


The Oscar winner and Alves, who first met at a nightclub in Los Angeles, also recently told PEOPLE that they made sure their youngsters know their value originates from something more significant.

McConaughey explained that their real merit comes from how they are trying to be as people, how they are as parents, how they love their children, and how they love one another.


McConaughey, who first earned recognition for his supporting performance in the 1993 film "Dazed and Confused," admitted that they are not perfect parents, but that they always make a valiant effort to raise their children the best way they can.

Meanwhile, the loved-up couple is done having children. Alves, a renowned Brazilian-American model who became a U.S. citizen in August 2015, discussed their decision during an interview in 2016.
