Matthew McConaughey may have been voted People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2005, but in 2015, he just got sexier. As the very proud husband of a new American citizen, he tweeted:


A photo of his family after the ceremony of citizenship for his wife of three years, Camila, and the words: ‘Congratulations Camila on getting your U.S. citizenship today – another fellow and great American.’


Now THAT is one sexy man, proud husband and father of three beautiful children, who just happens to also have won an Oscar for acting.


Formerly known as Camila Aves, the Brazilian model, who could barely speak English when she arrived in the United States at the age of 15 to visit her aunt in Los Angeles. Camila grew up in a farming family – her mother was an artist and designer, her father, a farmer.

Camila back in 2013 said on The View: 

‘My father always told me, “Before you become a queen you have to learn how to take care of your own things,” she said.

‘So I knew how to do all of it, but I had never really done it on a daily basis. So I was cleaning houses and I started working restaurants.’

She worked 4 yrs as a house-cleaner and waitress before moving to New York to pursue a career as a fashion model. She was signed with Bleu Model Management model agency.

She began dating Matthew McConaughey in 2007 and they had a son, Levi in 2008.  That same year, she launched her own line of handbags, Muxo, with the support of her mother, after working 3 years on the designs and styles.

In 2010, she gave birth to a daughter, Vida and shortly thereafter, began hosting Bravo’s Reality TV show Shear Genius. In 2011, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves were engaged. The engagement lasted 5 months before they were married in 2012 and 6 months later, Alva gave birth to their 3rd child, a son, Livingston. Also in 2012, Camila signed on to be the new face of Macy’s “I.N.C. International Concepts”.


And here we are, three years later, Alva McConaughey becomes a naturalized citizen at the young age of 30 – beautiful, intelligent, hardworking, wife, mother and businesswoman.

Now, THAT’s what America is about Obama!

The “land of opportunity” NOT the “land of dependency”.

Camila Alves came to this country to pursue a better life. She worked hard and pursued her dreams. She learned English and studied to be the best she could to become – An AMERICAN citizen!

Camila shared her own thoughts with her fans on her own accomplishment:

‘First day back and look what I just went thru. It is with great pride and honor that I am happy to say I now hold an American passport!’

‘I have so much respect and appreciation for this country… #newuscitizen.’

Camila – I have so much respect for YOU! God Bless You for working hard and achieving your goals without the dependency of government. YOU are an inspiration to others! You are what America is about – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

THIS is how we do it people!!!!!

You Go Girl! You can wear your crown proudly – Queen!
