Matthew McConaughey proposal to Camila Alves faced a refusal
Matthew McConaughey is still promoting ‘Magic Mike’ and he got married while doing it. Smart move! In one recently interview with Jay Leno, the 42-year-old actor opened about his proposal to his wife Camila Alves.
Believe it or not, the first time he asked her to marry him, she kind of said NO.
“At Christmastime, we go around our family and everyone takes turns opening presents”, McConaughey, 42, revealed Monday on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. “So I had wrapped the engagement ring in about eight different boxes deep, so she would keep opening boxes to get with it”, he explained. “She gets to it, she opens it up, her eyes go wide. I take a knee and I ask her, ‘Will you marry me and take my name’”?, he asked Camila.
Guess what? “The first words out of her mouth were not yes”, the actor revealed. Name a woman who would have done the same because we don’t know anyone. “‘Look, I’m down on a knee. I’ll stay here awhile. I will outlast you’. And I did! She conceded”, the actor insisted.
The two tied the knot lat weekend. The wedding was gorgeous: they had 4- tents in the years and the atmosphere was amazing.
Matthew and Camila are already parents to two children: son Levi, 3, and daughter Vida, 2.
