Alright, alright, alright! Matthew McConaughey's wife, Camila Alves, officially became a citizen of the United States on Tuesday, Aug. 4, and her Oscar-winning hubby naturally had some sweet things to say about her big moment.
"Congratulations Camila on getting your U.S. citizenship today," the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actor, 45, tweeted, alongside a snap of their family, including kids Levi, 7, Vida, 5, and Livingston, 2, supporting the model after the naturalization process. McConaughey and his wife match in yellow outfits while their daughter wears a cute blue dress and their sons both sport dress shirts. "Another fellow and great American," McConaughey added.
Alves, a Brazilian native, also took to social media to share her proud moment with fans on Tuesday. "Happy to say I now hold an American passport! I have so much respect and appreciation for this country," she wrote. "#newuscitizen."
The stunning mother of three, 33, and A-list actor tied the knot in June 2012. In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Alves said she tries to visit Brazil at least once a year.
"My mom has 10 uncles on one side, 13 on the other side, and a ton of cousins," the model said of her extended brood at a Magnum Chocolate Beach Party in Cannes, France, this past May. "We do Christmas, that for us is really big deal. We do all the cooking, the whole family comes and we don't open gifts until midnight on the 24th, so my kids love it. They love the Brazil Christmas because they get to stay up until midnight! And they love the family there. I bring the kids and Matthew there and we have so much fun."
McConaughey is a devoted family man now, but he revealed to GQ last fall that marriage took some convincing.
"I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do," the Oscar winner recalled. "I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn’t want it to be a destination; the fun is that we’re on the adventure together. And look, some of it had to do with her putting it on me. It took her going, ‘C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s–t or get off the pot.'"
