Matthew has many talents, one of which is cutting his son’s hair.
Matthew McConaughey’s wife Camila Alves McConaughey showed the actor trimming his son Livingston’s hair in a recent Instagram post.
In this photo, McConaughey is seen using barber scissors to shave his 10-year-old son, Livingston, who is seated in a salon chair.
Levi, the couple’s eldest child, is 14 and looks exactly like his father!
Camila Alves, Matthew McConaughey’s wife, posted an Instagram photo of the actor grooming their son Livingston’s hair.
“Then this happened,” the Brazilian model captioned a photo of a clump of Livingston’s blonde, highlighted hair on the floor.
McConaughey and his wife have been married since 2012. Vida, the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, is also part of the family.
The four-person family has chosen to keep a low-profile in Texas, with the parents rarely posting photos or comments about their children.
Last year, Alves McConaughey told Fox News Digital that she and her family enjoyed their time in Texas.
“It’s been great,” she shared. “It really embodies our belief system, especially the ones I grew up with, like going to church every Sunday, saying ‘yes ma’am’ or ‘no, sir.’ I grew up saying those things coming from a family of farmers. For me, being from Brazil and then coming to Texas, I discovered a lot of similarities in terms of what families practice here, especially going to church on Sundays, and being very into the outdoors. It’s been a great transition.”
McConaughey further on his thoughts on parenting to Town & Country in 2020, saying, “Sometimes loving your kids means giving them just what they want. Other times it means tough love. Affluent people can give their kids everything they want, but they’re not usually going to get what they need. Loving a child is a lot harder if you really give a damn. ‘No’ takes a lot more energy. It’s a lot easier to say ‘yes.’”
In July, Matthew McConaughey discussed the difficulties of raising teenagers.
“You know, it’s interesting because when you have little ones, you are physically exhausted, right? And I feel like when you get to the teenagers … it’s almost like you need more energy,” she told US Weekly.
“You need more brain power because it becomes all very about the mind, right? It’s like a teenager [is] trying to find their identity and find how they’re going to navigate their lives. So I think that … for me, it’s more challenging in a good way.”
They recently celebrated Vida’s 13th birthday, and invited family friend Woody Harrelson as a special guest.
The tweet read: “Uncle @woodyharrelson is questioning if the cake is vegan or not!!!” Underneath a picture of her kid holding a cake, with Harrelson looking bewildered, Alves McConaughey wrote a joke.
Despite the fact that they don’t talk much about their own children, they do a lot of work on behalf of children and are very generous. They founded the organization Just Keep Livin’ that “is committed to enabling high school kids by equipping them with the tools to lead active lives and make healthy choices for a better future.”
After the tragic school massacre that took the lives of 19 children and two adults in his hometown of Uvalde, Texas, the “How to Lose a Man in 10 Days” actor became an ardent advocate for gun regulation.
