Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are one of the rare long-lasting couples in Hollywood who proved that real love can blossom in the spotlight.

The pair met back in 2006 in NY’s nightclub. McConaughey was smitten when he saw Camila across the room but she wasn’t completely charmed by him at first.

However, the actor didn’t give up and soon, the two started dating. In 2010, Matthew decided that it’s time to officially take Alves off the market forever as he went down on one knee and proposed.

He thought she’ll say “no”

When Matthew proclaimed his love to Camila and asked her to marry him, she didn’t say “yes” right away.

The Hollywood superstar recalled in one of his interviews:

I remember her having to catch her breath. And she didn’t say yes right away. And then the whole family was going, 'Jeezus, she’s gonna say no.'

But, of course, she didn’t refuse McConaughey’s proposal and the couple got married in 2012. However, the wedding might not have happened if it wasn’t for Alves’ clever idea.

A wedding invitation

Being one of the hottest actors in Hollywood, McConaughey’s schedule was so packed that the pair had to constantly changed the date of their wedding.

Finally, the Brazilian beauty got fed up with waiting for her beau to set the date so she did it herself. Not only that, she printed the invitations for their nuptials and presented one to Matthew. According to ET Canada, it simply said “Be there.”

Now the couple is happily married and raising three children together, 2 sons and one daughter. McConaughey very rarely appears with his kids, shielding them from the spotlight, but we can tell he is a great father.

The whole family often goes on exciting trips together which only shows that the kiddos inherited their famous dad’s adventures spirit.
