For Matthew McConaughey and his longtime love Camila Alves, welcoming their first son Levi Alves McConaughey on July 7 was typical of the way the couple handles everything in their lives: easy-going and as a team.

And now, in an exclusive interview and photoshoot, the 38-year-old actor opens up about becoming a father for the first time.

"We found a great rhythm," Matthew tells OK! about the delivery of baby Levi. "Contractions started kicking in. I sat there with her, right between her legs. We got tribal on it, we danced to it! I was DJ-ing this Brazilian music."

Levi was born at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center and weighed a healthy 7 lbs., 4 oz., and Matthew tells OK! he kept a detailed diary of his and Camila’s hospital experience.


So who does little Levi look more like? "Everybody thinks he looks like me because of the hair and skin tone," Camila says. "I think he looks more like Matthew every day."

Matthew adds, "I’ve pulled out some baby pictures of myself, and the resemblance is amazing."
