Actor poses with girlfriend Camila Alves and their first child Levi

Matthew McConaughey and long-term girlfriend Camila Alves have released the first pictures of their 2-week-old son Levi.

‘No one tells you this, but having a baby is a bloody, pukey, sweaty, primeval thing!’ says Matthew, 38. ‘I mean that as a beautiful thing. It’s wild. ‘

Camila, 25, gave birth by Caesarean section on 7 July at the Santa Monica UCLA Medical Centre in LA.

‘I think he looks more like Matthew every day,’ she tells US OK!

‘This kid has a lot to learn from us,’ Matthew adds. ‘I want him to come out being a little wiser, a little cooler and a little happier than we are.’
