It might have taken a few years, two kids and a couple of houses to get Matthew McConaughey down on one knee, but now that he's finally engaged to his longtime love Camila Alves... nothing's changed!  Camila says she already feels like Matthew's wife and making it official really won't affect their daily lives.  OK! GALLERY: MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY & CAMILA ALVES TAKE THEIR KIDS ON AN EDUCATIONAL OUTING  "We've been living a married life for over six years now," the Brazilian beauty, 29, tells ET Canada. "We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together. So we've been living a married life this whole time." In actuality, Camila says tying the knot is really more for her and Matthew's children, three-year-old Levi and two-year-old Vida.  "It's great for the kids," she explains. "Levi actually understands what it means now that mama's going to have the same last name as they have, so that's neat." So when will the wedding happen? Not anytime soon, according to Camila.  "I really haven't thought much about the wedding," she admits. "We just got a new home in Texas. It's just been really busy. I'm really just enjoying being engaged." OK! NEWS: CAMILA ALVES REVEALS ENGAGEMENT RING FROM MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY  Camila believes there are things much more important than marriage, like happiness, trust, and devotion to your family.  "A lot of people, sometimes they're so stuck on 'I gotta get married, I gotta get married,'" she explains. "They forget that the really important thing is to have a healthy home, a healthy family, a healthy environment for your kids and to have everything going in a good, peaceful way."
