Matthew McConaughey, Camila Alves engaged

'Tis the season to hear about plenty of couples getting engaged, and Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are among them.

The 42-year-old actor popped the question to girlfriend Camila on Sunday, and then revealed the happy news on his WhoSay account.

"Just asked Camila to marry me, merry Christmas" he posted, along with a photo of the couple sharing a kiss.

The actor and Alves, 29, have two children together, and McConaughey hasn't been shy about declaring his adoration for the Brazilian model and television personality. He told Esquire magazine in its April issue, "I found the woman...I wanna make a family with, hopefully live our life out together."

    Well What Can I Say, t's about time, I think he has tried out every actress out there & finally decided this is the
    Best I Can Do! With 2 kids, he should have called her his wife a long time ago! God don't judge you by your
    looks!

    They have been together for several years, live together, have two children together. What's with getting engaged?! Engagements give a couple time to break the news of a new life together, to prepare for life together, and to publicize their intentions of legally doing so.

    There is absolutely no need to this couple to get "engaged".

    Why is it that gay people always believe rumors that someone is gay EVEN though they have proven time and time again that they are NOT, hence Mathew's engagement and KISSING A WOMAN, is that not sufficient. Please let it go. Do they realize that if EVERYONE was gay. Civilization as we know it would NOT exist. Please think before you post people. I know it's hard but try it.

      Camila Alves is indeed gay because she hangs out a the gay bars all the time. And Matthew and myself are psychic. He has been my boyfriend for 11 years and we have 10 year old twin daughters together. And Matthew and myself don't like gay lifestyle whatsoever. Camila is too young for him. Camila is a 29 year old lesbian loonytoon. And Matthew did not ask for Camila's hand marriage. Gay is a decision and it's one that people should not make because it destroys relationships.

  7. Queen Senath CarMel Anderson

    Matthew McConaughey is not getting married to Camila Alves, she has schizophrenia and hears voices in her head that lie to her. Matthew would never marry a mentally ill person. Matthew has been with Queen Senath for 11 years and has 10 year old twins with him. Princess Priscilla and Princess Penelope McConaughey. Remember Matthew has a twin brother that he don't talk about and they are both psychic like myself. Camila was not always around Matthew, his twin didn't have a relationship with Camila either. But I guarantee you he was at some of the award ceremonies and people only thought that was Matthew when in truth it was Matthew's twin. He is a plastic surgeon. Queen Senath and Matthew love each other very much and Matthew would like Camila to stop following him around and stop lying to the tabloids. Queen Senath is planning a royal wedding with Matthew. Sat Aug 24, 2013, 2:00 p.m. Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France and the wedding reception will be held at the Palace of Versailles. The engagement party is going to be in June of 2013 at Castle Galway in Irleland. We are having leg of lamb, baby potatoes and steamed cabbage and chocolate rasberry mousse and glasses of instant cold lemon and hot tea and flavored coffee. At the wedding reception we are having grilled salmon and stuffed portobello mushrooms with crab and spinach mixed together with steamed veggies on the side and cake and fruit in the ballroom, along with entertainment and big cold frothy glasses of non alcholic pina coladas.

    He is a has been, and has gotten uglier as he's gotten older. Maybe she's just playing for the green card and her anchor bablies. He is as stupid as he is ugly and who gives a rat's elbow about who he marries. She does sound a bit like "Lucy" Damon, who let Matt Damon knock her up so she could trick him into marrying her and taking care of her anchor baby.

    Hey Bongo, publicity marriages do not last. What are you doing? I wish I was still around to stop you from making the same mistakes others have made. You're a he man why are you playing with girls? Forget your career will you that will not last either. You and I both know this marriage will last all of a few months at the most. You know you cannot stand females being around all the time so why are you doing this? You know who this is so give me a call I think you need to talk it out with someone who knows the secrets you hide.

    I agree with a couple of people, 1 Why did she have to pop out 2 kids before they decided to marry. Forgive me but I was raised to get married then have children not the way it seems to go today. 2 Happily Married ignore the jerk glad your marriage is on Great. 3 To the jerk on here Marriage is what you make it. You & whoever you married didnt make it work but that's ok. You can try again but if you got bad viewpoints like you do then of course it aint gonna work if you try again. Everyone can have a happy marriage but it isn't gonna be easy work. It's a FULL TIME JOB....Lookin forward to it in the Future! CONGRATULATIONS MATTHEW & HIS SOON TO BE WIFE cause I don't know her name!

    And yet another example of what can happen when CNN fails to monitor/filter its comments section. I would suggest that Mr. Matthew has a potential stalker in Queen Senath and that his/her comments should be flagged. It reads as if someone is not being properly supervised and may need some sort of intervention. That is a potentially dangerous situation.

      You might want to read the comment on the bottom that I wrote, I am a very smart woman and you have no idea what your talking about. I am not a stalker I have been Matthew's girlfriend for 11 years and I have 10 year old twins together. I am a doctor of psychology and psychiatry and paranormal psychology. I am a psychic and so is Matthew. Matthew would never listen to anything you have to say. Leave me and Matthew alone. He has always loved me and I have always been my boyfriend, lover, partner, companion and best friend.

      for 'pockets': Not sure how Jennifer Aniston got in on this but since you brought it up: it's clear what children look like either in your home or the area you apparently live in but it's not common place to have, as you put it, snotty nose kids trailing behind parents that have an interest in their children....at least the nanny knows to wipe their nose !
