How beautiful! She looks just like mommy so far! I love this fairly candid pic, instead of the fussy stage shows usually presented.

Jaime on

How cute, they are such a lovely couple. And, now they have two blessings to be thankful for.

I love that it’s their photo!! Not some staged, made-up, photo-shopped picture! Means so much more, I think.

Olia on

Best photo I have seen on here in awhile. You can tell Camilla is exhausted but yet still so happy and full of love. And Matthew is beaming!

And little Vita is so precious.

Daddy is looking his age!

Mama to Monkeys on

Mama does not look like she is recovering from a repeat c/s.

Here’s to the beautiful new family!

Jessicad on

Gorgeous family! Wonder if they were feeling a girl this time like they did boy before, they are too cute! Did she have a section? I know she really wanted a vaginal birth before, and the baby does have a bit of a cute little conehead so it makes me wonder, I haven’t heard how she gave birth this time. Either way, congrats to them!

Lola on

What a gorgeous photo & beautiful family!!

sil on

aaaawwwww beautiful picture! they look so happy and in love, Vida is so cute!

mom to 3 boys on

this is such a wonderful photo. They aren’t looking at their newborn daughter, but rather each other as if to say, ‘we made another miracle’. The love is just oozing from this photograph.

MontanaMomma on

I wonder if she had a VBAC? The baby is resting on her abdomen, which would be very painful if it was a section. Hmmm…

They are absolutely gorgeous and the love is just oozing out of that beautiful picture. So happy for them!

CelebBabyLover on

Jessicad- They haven’t said what type of birth she had. However, per Vida’s birth announcement post here on CBB, she was born at 12:13 a.m., which seems like a VBAC to me (most planned C-sections are performed during regular 9-5 working hours, not at midnight!).

So I’m guessing either VBAC, VBAC attempt that ended in an emergancy C-section (although I doubt that, as Camila certainly doesn’t look like she went through labor and then a C-section in this picture), or Camila DID have a C-section scheduled, but Vida decided she wanted to come earlier than the scheduled day! πŸ™‚

MontanaMomma- Like I said previously, I DO think Camila probably had a VBAC, due to the timing of the birth, but I don’t think that Vida resting on her abdomen is neccesarily proof of that. My mother had my via C-section, and in the home video that my father took the very next day, I am lying on my mother’s abdomen (although a bit higher up then where her incision was!). πŸ™‚

CelebBabyLover on

Oh, and I’m guessing that the reason Levi wasn’t there (apart from the fact that this picture may have been taken shortly after the birth) is that the hospital Vida was born at probably has the no one under 18 allowed to visit the maternity ward policy that many hospitals have adapted as a Swine Flu precaution in place. πŸ™‚

CelebBabyLover on

I DO sort of wish they had taken a photo after they got home of all four of them and posted that one instead….but they probably really liked this one (plus, given Levi’s age, he could very well be at a stage where he doesn’t like posing for pictures!). πŸ™‚

Zoe on

very beautiful and natural photo!! God bless this beautiful family!! All the Best Wishes for the little New Princess!!!!

Joy on

I wish we could have seen a clearer picture of her. Love the name..

FC on

So beautiful. I love the naturalness to it. She looks like a happy, exhausted mother and he’s the proud, beaming papa, both on auto-pilot. They just make me think of a happy family holding their newest addition to the family.

It’s just me, but I love when family photos don’t scream Hollywood stars. Like it’s a photo I can find in just about anyone’s family album. πŸ™‚

Oh, and Vida is adorable. πŸ™‚

brannon on

Stunning. Absolutely perfect.

brandi on

Camila is gorgeous! Unfair. πŸ˜€

Linda on

I love them! They are so cuteeee… God bless this family!

Vida oakes on

She will enjoy her name! Congrats

Lauren on

in the States, the mom’s last name comes first and then the father’s? Here says Vida Alves McConaughey, i thought it would’ve say Vida McConaughey Alves
and yes, but the most beautiful is Levi, so sweet and cute!

Melanie on

They look so happy! not sure about the name though, it reminds me of my coldplay album, “Viva la Vida” maybe they are fans lol!

Heather Yocum on

They are a beautiful family!!! Wish them luck!!

Frankie on

Melanie- Vida mens life in portuguese.
