Matthew McConaughey Explains Awesome Baby Name

by at . Comments

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves have named their son Levi.

While we don't feel an explanation is necessary for such an awesome moniker, McConaughey dropped this bit of knowledge on fans anyway:

"Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person. Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: 'If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'"

Amen, Matthew. Amen.

With a father that looks like this, Levi Alves McConaughey is in good hands. And feet. And pectorals.

Levi was gonna stay home, but then he said, 'Dad, mom, I wanna go support mom's purses!' At 30 days old, he's talking about stuff like that!

To my father, who I know he's up there right now with a big pot of gumbo. He's got a lemon meringue pie over there, he's probably in his underwear and he's got a cold can of Miller Lite and he's probably dancing right now. To you, Dad, you taught me what it means to be a man.
