The gang’s all here!

Matthew McConaughey gives son Levi, 2½, a lift, while mom Camila Alves holds tight to daughter Vida, 17 months, as the family strolls through LAX Wednesday.

Father and son even wore matching “j.k. livin'” hats as they made their way to the car.

“[Levi] dotes on her, but [Vida is] getting big enough where it’s a competition now and he’s only got a few more months of being bigger than her,” McConaughey, 41, said recently.

“She’s gonna overtake him I think and really start whooping his butt soon!”

I just think that Vida is the sweetest little thing. I love that she has grown enough hair for pigtails!

Such a beautiful looking family. Do they pronounce her name to sound like Vyda or Veeda?

Has it been confirmed whether Levi is a little person? In this article it Matthew almost seems to confirm it by saying Vida is going to catch up soon.

J-Nelle first off I always thought Levi looked small, but in this picture he looks the size of a 2 1/2 almost 3 year old. Secondly, they are a year apart so they are going to be similar in size. Lastly, he DID NOT say Levi is a little person, my guess is he was referring to to Vida overtaking him due to her strong personality. I mean this is my guess but he definitely did not just confirm Levi is a little person and to be honest he looks his age on Matt’s shoulders. Beautiful family!

Vida and Levi aren’t terribly far apart in age. At some point they probably will be close in height/size.

Beautiful family!

I don’t think Levi’s so little. He seems to be 2 1/2 years old to me. Vida is pronounce like veeda. It means life in Portuguese.

Cute family!

I think Levi looks like Matthew and Vida looks like Camila …. Love this family …. they all look great …. these kids just keep getting cuter and cuter 🙂

J-Nelle, I think it’s rather that Levi is average size and Vida is tall. They are only a year apart, so if the younger one is tall and the older is average or even slightly shorter than average, the younger will outgrow the older quite quickly. I actually met a sibling pair when I was temping in day care, where the older would inherit his baby sister’s outgrown clothes by the time he was 5, and she was two years younger than him! He just happened to be a pretty average sized 5 year old whereas she was a very tall 3 year old. They are now 14 and 16 and she is still way taller than him.
