โค hes the sweetest most handsome celeb boy ever…I just wanna cuddle him n pinch his cheeks!

The pup is as big as he is! โค so cute

FC on

I really dig his haircutโ€”especially now that I’ve got a better look at it, sans bandanna. It’s cute, and it frames his face quite nicely.
Love how he and the dog seem to just be taking a nice, leisurely stroll.

Sage on

maggie on

that is so darn CUTE! ๐Ÿ˜€

Brooke on

I LOVE this pic…..Matthew and Camilla need to frame this one….

Sadie on

We get to see his hair without any headgear/wear! He is one tiny 2 yr old.

@ Erika – I think Kendra’s baby Hank is the cutest celeb baby boy. Just my opinion.

Ruby on

This is the best picture EVER. So cute.

Manal on

How can a 2 year old walk a dog?!

Remy on

With his haircut, Levi looks so much older! He’s such a cutie pie!

iluvperfectparents on

I want him. He looks so cute, I love the new haircut.

Elle on

Yes this haircut is just adorable! He is a little sweetie.

alice jane on

That must be one gentle, easygoing dog to casually stroll with a 2 year old like that! So, so cute. I love this picture.

JM on

what a handsome little boy!

cammie on

He is super cute, but I still think he is a little person.

romy on

so cute! he has such a miniature/compact body like his dad

anonymous on

I think it been the last few years where there has been huge uptick of picture taking, paparazzi etc — largely because of technology and the popularity of the web. Makes me wonder if all this has an impact on the kids — being such the center of attention. It’s different for a 25 year old than just a kid dealing with the flashing cameras, being chased in the car.

Hey he can’t even take a walk in peace. Yikes.

Amber on

@Cammie…that’s always in the back of my mind, lol! Levi and Story (Jenna Elfman’s son) seem so tiny. Maybe it’s just the angles and since Camilla is tall it seems that way.

Helene on

Love him! So cute. One of my favorite pictures I have ever seen.

Cut it out with the little people comments. They are really getting repetitive and rude. He is 2 years old and petite. Let it go already.

Jenn on

I didn’t used to think he was a little person but I think he looks more and more like it as he’s getting older.

Helene, this is my opinion. If you don’t like it then I don’t care. Let it go already.

Kelsea.. on

HE IS SOO CUTE AND ADORABLE!!!!
But people need to hush up about him being “a little person” HE’S TWO!!! He is just short for his age. I mean look at his daddy, He is SHORT too!! Not all two year olds are tall, most are short!! Hello people, think a little. But anyways he is adorable and ONE OF THE CUTEST TODDLERS IN HOLLYWOOD!! ๐Ÿ™‚

kimmy on

his height looks like a normal two yr old

loren on

my second son(grown man now) was a small child,
he is a short man 5’8, but not a “little person”
When he was five I did not let people call him “shorty”
because he was 5 and no one knew he was going to be short.
Give Levi a chance to grow and if he is a little person
well that will have to be OK, for now, he is only 2 plenty
of time to see how tall or not he will be ๐Ÿ™‚ geez

aj on

So how darling is this kid? I mean really, he is just gorgeous. Little Vida is too.

ABC 123 on

@ cammie- thank you so much for not calling him the m word. that is one of my biggest pet peeves.

in my opinion i do not think that he is a little person but he sure is a little guy
he looks so big and handsome with his cute new hair cut! he is by far one of the cutest little boys in hollywood! he seems like the same age as a typical two year old.

cris on

Helene, the fact that you say: “Cut it out with the little people comments. They are really getting repetitive and rude. He is 2 years old and petite. Let it go already” is extremely offensive as you were the only person who insinuated any sort of negativity to being a little person~the fact that you read these comments as negative only shows your own ignorance.

Lily on

I think he and his little sister are one of the cutest celebrity kids I’ve ever seen and why is everyone calling him short, he’s only 2! Anyways, this little boy is going to be very handsome when he is older…

Helene on

Cris, I am not sure what you mean. I was commenting on a comments previous to mine and I was insulted based on their comments. My niece is the same size as him and people have asked similar questions to “is she a little person” to my sister. She is not a little person, but I would have NO problems with her if she did, but it is hurtful to have people point and stare at your child or talk about them negatively.

cecily on

I don’t think people question if he’s a little person just because of his height, but because he’s proportioned a little differently. He’s still a beautiful boy though.

Madison on

Isn’t it dangerous for Levi to walk the dog? If the dog saw something interesting and started chasing after it, then Levi would be dragged on the ground.

Karen on

Oh my is he a cutie!!! I love his hair long or short! I think a big part of the reason people think he is so tiny is because he is always dressed in baggy clothes. Look at his shirts they are down past his waist which makes his legs look shorter, and the sleves on his sweatshirt are rolled up making his arms look shorter. I think if he was wearing clothes that fit he wouldn’t look as tiny, but I dig his style!

Bancie1031 on

Awe I miss his long hair ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Levi is always adorable! I love how he’s walking the dog all by himself ๐Ÿ˜€

Lys on

Oh my god, he is such a gorgeous little boy. He always looks so laid back, I love their style. ๐Ÿ™‚

And whatever, all of my nephews and my little brother have been the same size. They were lite as a feather too, to the point where it was weird carrying them around because of how weightless they were, but all grew up to be 5’10” – 6′ And, even if he is going to be short, who even gives a rat’s tail anyways? He’s still one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen โค

hayley on

AS I have said before i had a little daughter, born teennny full term but perfect and although she is now a beautiful 21month old she is still in 9-12 months clothes that are a little big on her, if i am honest one of the most annoying things is people commenting on how timy she is for her age….its the first thing some people say and i find it a little rude….

my take is, yeah she is small any one with eyes can see that there isn’t a need to point it out to me i’m her mother lol i have noticed…the problem i have is every single post brings up his height… ok maybe he is a bit on the little side but so what he is just perfect and i’m sue his mum and dad don’t care so we shouldn’t either ๐Ÿ˜€ he looks healthy, i am sure hes happy and thats all that matters.

Bella on

Really, Madison? Maybe they shouldn’t let him walk at all because he might trip over a rock.

Why does everything have to be nitpicked?

Such an adorable little boy, and such an adorable family.

Lola Marie on

Wow, what an adorable little man, this picture is precious!! Seriously some of you people are RUDE…my 2yr old is only a few months older than Levi & only a little bit bigger & she definitely isnt a little person, kids grow at their own pace, learn some class people, learn some class.

Kresta on

He has a tiny body and a big head which is quite common in 2-year-olds.

Hilda on

Ah, so laid back & cool, just like his dad. Damn, cuteness OVERLOAD! ๐Ÿ™‚

cammie on

I am not sure why some people are offended. I apologize for anyone who I made angry. I was stating my opinion, unlike so many on here post in a nasty way. Helene, I wasn’t pointing it out negatively; I was simply making a statement . Any connotations were on your part, so that is not on me. I am sorry though if you felt it was a sleight towards you. I thought as long as we posted kindly we could agree to disagree. I am short too, always have been my whole life. I have 3 LP in my family. There is, btw, nothing shameful or embarrassing about stating it. I have also made posts about how tall some kids look, like Heidi Klum’s kids and Sunday Rose, yet no one had a problem with that. Observation is simply observation, and maybe we have a problem in this country with an obsession with tallness that makes some think shortness is a bad thing or in some way an insult, cause it’s not.

Elisa on

He’s so cute!! I think that with his hair short he reminds his daddy…

regard to the other comments,his legs and arms are normal compared to his torso so he’s not a little person… I’ve learnt in college that until the age of two genetics influence little in the growth…so as far as we know he may still grow up to be a tall man… seriously so many things to talk about and most of you talk only about his hight!! he’s an adorable child and looks reaally cute with that dog!! it’s great that he got used to the papparazi since they,unfortunately, will be a part of his life…

Hea on

This is just too darn cute..!

Helene – Why is it rude? There is absolutely nothing wrong or shameful about being a little person.

linda on

SUPERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR CUTEEEEEEEEE!

OMGGGGGGGGGGG โค

Helene on

I do want to repeat something, there is nothing wrong if someone IS a little person. There was a post awhile back on this site (with the mom on Gossip Girl’s daughter) and someone made the comment that the child looked like she had down syndrome. There is nothing wrong with someone having down syndrome either, but that is just unneccessary to say. It is like pointing out that someone is overweight. Why is it done? I was on facebook yesterday and someone didn’t like what I said, so they told me to go to Weight Watchers.

I live with a disability myself, and have people constantly staring, pointing and judging me and trying to “diagnose me,” right in front of me. I guess I should lighten up a bit, but with me, my past career with children, and my niece, it is a sore subject. I respect all of your opinions and in me getting offended, I didn’t mean to offend anyone.

B.J. on

Adorable picture. He has been raised with that dog so I’m sure they’re best buddies.

Jenn on

I’m not sure why pointing out that he is small is rude in anyway. No one has implied anything remotely negative about his being small, just simply that he is.

If people are offended by people stating that he looks small, then you’re projecting your own issues.

He’s cute, he’s small, he appears to have loving attentive parents, and a very calm and patient dog.

That’s it.

Hea on

For someone to take offense, there has got to be at least some judgment against people with for example Down Syndrome or one of the many diagnoses that makes you a little person. I don’t know, maybe it’s fear of looking like “they” do?

JMO on

“Most individuals with primordial dwarfism are not diagnosed until they are about 3 years of age.”

Levi just turned 2. There is very well a good possibility that he COULD indeed be a little person! And to say he is is not being rude! Those who think it’s rude must have problems when it comes to little people. Nobody said omg look at that [insert use of the “M” word]I too hate that word. Nobody called him names! People made an observation about a little boy. An observation I myself have been making since he was just a baby! His smaller arms and different features remind me of certain types of little people. The likelihood of him being a little person is probably very low. He could very well just be a tiny little boy for his age! But even if someday it comes out that he is a little person – who the hell cares! That kids is cute no matter what and he will grow up just fine despite his small stature.

Bonnie on

Am I the only person who never once noticed his height before? I just thought he was super adorable. Looking back at the pics…he still just looks super adorable! Doesn’t look short, or little, or big, or tall to me…just looks like a cute little perfectly normal 2 year old!

Helene on

“Fear of looking like โ€œtheyโ€ do,” has nothing to do with it. I respect your opinion, please respect mine. You don’t know my experience unless you have walked in my shoes.

Tee on

Goodness, this discussion got out of hand! I am terminal and in a wheelchair at only 29 years old. (and I look much younger) I much prefer when people simply ask questions instead of staring or making rude comments. Levi is a precious little boy and none of us know his medical history. Perhaps one day his parents will choose to speak out as to if he has any health problems but until then, I won’t make assumptions because I hate it when people make assumptions about my health.

For example, a very rude person in Wal-Mart once told me to “get my lazy butt up out of that chair and walk. You’re way too young to need a wheelchair.” Oh, good to know… let me jump up and walk now that I’ve been diagnosed by you!

Jenn on

omg, that is one of the cutest pics I have ever seen in my life!!!!!!

J on

Both of the Alves-McConaughey kids look just like their mother.

Helene on

Tee, I am so sorry for your situation. I am 31 and will soon be in the wheelchair due to my terminal disability. The words you wrote brought tears to my eyes. That is what I feel everyday. I wish you lots of happiness and luck!

Jaedyn on

This is a VERY cute picture. He looks normal to me. Neither small nor tall or big. He is just a little boy. Perhaps his shirt makes his upper body seem longer, but I don’t really get this discussion. He looks like a happy, perfectly healthy boy to me! Super cute!

van on

He is so cute! As for his size, he is somewhat small considering his father is 5’10 and his mom is 5’9. My son was his size at that age and I am 5’2 and my husband is 5’7.

Sam on

Cute cute cute! He is just cute! BUT he is tiny. Tiny boned maybe? Long hair all over a tiny face may have contributed to him looking overly tiny. I think he does look ‘out of proportion’ but all children grow at their own pace so I’m thinking Levi will too.

Tee on

Helena- Thank you so much for your kind words. The truth is that I feel very blessed. I turned 29 years old on July 4th and I never thought I would live long enough to see 29! Every day is a blessing and while there are a lot of times that I break down in tears and ask God why this is happening, I do my best to make the most of the time I have left and to trust in God’s perfect timing. I would just about kill to be able to walk again though! I pray that you have more time before you are wheelchair bound. It’s not fun but it’s better than nothing. Besides, all five of my nieces love riding in the chair with me!

Sam on

As for the dog, it’s been on the beach and stayed close beside Mattheew, Camilla and Levi in many pictures I’ve seen. I think the dog is pretty gentle and easy going so maybe the leash was just a bylaw thing?

MiB on

Wow! He looks so much bigger with his hair cut, not like a baby any more. I understand Camilas anguish over cutting his hair (and it did look adorable), but he does look better now that we can see his face.

Sage on

JMO weird features what are you talking about.Anyways we’ll see it doesn’t matter because he family loves no matter what size or features he has

Hea on

Helene – I’ve never not respected your opinion? At least I’ve never meant to do so. We all have our burdens to bear and we can’t really compare. I don’t really see how it really matters here either. Levi looks happy and healthy and that is all that matters. In these cases, size really doesn’t matter. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ritz on

it’s the limbs! Matthew has short shoulders and arms too. his torso is also long in proportion to his legs. Matthew has a been a heartthrob, and I am sure Levi will be fine too.

Ritz on

have to also add his dad’s head is big for his body too. And I think Matthew would be 5’10 on a good day WITH good shoes.

JMO on

Sage…were did I imply the word wierd in my postings??

I said different features?! Did that word suddenly turn into wierd? I’m confused?!

Electra on

I was going to say what Ritz said. The boy isn’t really small its how he’s proportioned. Like his father he’s got short legs and a longer torso. Plus the sweater is long.

Lucie on

He looks adorable! I doubt he is a little person, and he is only 2. Not saying that it would be bad if he was a little person. I was a tiny baby and little kid, but I grew and passed my mom in height when I got older. Like others said, it might just be what he is wearing and the type of proportions. Also, I used to have a dog like that, and although it doesn’t look like it in the picture, it’s classified as a “medium” dog, so next to it, he looks shorter. Plus, it could just be how the picture is. I just think he looks super cute, and I LOVE his haircut!

Kat on

The obsession over this kid’s size is ridiculous. He is freaking two years old!

olia on

cute cute cute!!!!
