Despite previous reports, it is now rumored that actor Matthew McConaughey will marry longtime sweetheart Camila Alves in Texas this weekend.
We reported earlier that McConaughey popped the question on Christmas Day to 5-year girlfriend and mother of his two children, Camila Alves. Early reports suggested that the couple would plan an extensive wedding in Alves’ home country, Brazil. “Camila wants to get married in Brazil with her family all around,” reported Life & Style. “She misses the food and the people there, so she’s planning a big, beautiful Brazilian wedding.”
New reports seem to suggest that the 29-year-old Brazilian model and TV presenter has changed her mind, and a speedy wedding is on its way, to take place this coming weekend. Sources tell E! that the couple are tying the knot in a “weekend affair” in McConaughey’s home state of Texas.
Alves was supposed to be honored today by the Step Up Women’s Network in Beverly Hills, but is apparently going to teleconference the event so that she can stay home to make wedding preparations. The two are aiming for an intimate ceremony, having reportedly only invited about two-dozen close friends and family to there. The workers at the wedding have also signed non-disclosure agreements, but where there’s smoke there’s fire. Looks like this thing is for real.
The 42-year-old actor started dating Alves in 2006. The couple have two children together: 2-year-old daughter Vida and 4-year-old son Levi. They recently moved from L.A. to Austin, Texas. “I grew up here,” McConaughey said of the move in March. “We got children, family values, neighbors and common sense.”
