Matthew McConaughey posted this lovely photo (don’t all pictures look more romantic in black-and-white for some reason?) of him with baby-mama Camila Alves and baby-girl Vida on his Web site. Mateo writes:
“Here’s a pic of our latest family member Vida Alves McConaughey. Thanks for all your well wishes our way, the future’s lookin bright, just keep livin, Matthew and Camila.”
Awwww… look at little Vida! I had that same look on my face after watching her dad’s movie, Sahara.
And here’s some BREAKING news (you’re gonna want to hold on to your hats for this one): Camila refuses to — GASP! — have sex for 40 days after giving birth. She tells StyleList.com:
“Where I come from [Brazil], we believe in something we call a 40-day break after the baby. You have to let your body do its own thing. You give it time to recover and let everything settle down. In a way, it is nice. There is not so much pressure. You kind of respect all the hard work your body has just done and give it a break. For these 40 days you really take it easy.”
Um… a six-week break is recommended pretty much everywhere, isn’t it? Certainly is in the States. Yet media outlets ranging from Us Weekly to The New York Post ran this tidbit like it was the juiciest story EVER. It’s shocking that those upstanding outlets would sensationalize something like that.
