Matthew McConaughey is “proud” of his wife and newborn daughter Vida.

Matthew McConaughey is “proud” of his wife and newborn daughter Vida.

The actor’s older brother Rooster has spoken to his famous sibling and revealed Matthew, his wife Camila Alves and baby are all “doing fine”.

Rooster added: “He called me on Sunday afternoon and said, ‘I made a little baby girl.’ He’s all proud… he’s got it going on now.”

Rooster told Matthew - who also has an 18-month-old son Levi with Camila – to “quit copying” his life, as he also has a son and a daughter.

He joked to him: “Hell, we’ve got so many McConaughey girls now, we’re all going to have to learn volleyball and cheerleading!”

Matthew, 40, announced the birth of Vida on his official website earlier this week.

He wrote: “Happy New Year everybody!!! On Sunday, Jan. 3 at 12.13am, Camila gave birth to a healthy 7lb 7oz. baby girl named Vida Alves McConaughey.

“Vida is Portuguese for 'life' and that's what God gave us this morning... Camila's recovering wonderfully and we are both truly honored to welcome this little lady into our family. (sic)”
