Matthew's Oscar speech

No one could ever doubt his moral principles, especially after his Academy Award-winning speech where Matthew showed his brightest side. He shared his wisdom with us through the monologue, which deserves an Oscar itself. Matthew told that there are three most important things in this world:

Someone to look up to, something to look forward to, and someone to chase.

He then explained that he looks up to God, looks forward to his beautiful family and chases after his personal hero, who is he but in 10 years. That’s why Matthew never stops and strives to become a better version of himself to make his family proud of him.

Watch the whole speech:

The first child, Levi

Matthew has proven to be a great husband. When his wife, Camila Alves, was pregnant with their first child, she would always help her cope with basically everything. Camilla had really painful contractions in a hospital, so the actor took a role of DJ and played Brazilian music for her.

Matthew explained:

Contractions have their own rhythm, right, so, we had to find our own rhythm to be a little bit above or on top of the contractions' rhythm. We had a good groove going.

He also praised his wife for her strength during the labor:

You see a woman just really digging deep into her soul, and bearing pain, and being on top of it, I saw a strength come out of her I'd never seen before.

However, complications still took place, despite all the attempts to calm Camilla down. The water broke seven days earlier the due date, and the doctors said she needed to have a cesarean section. Fortunately, the baby emerged crying and with his eyes wide open. Their son was absolutely healthy. After such an emotional experience, Matthew was wearing his hospital ID bracelet for a whole month.

God's blessing

The couple wasn’t thinking about the name of their newborn for too long. Levi is another name for Matthew in the Bible, and the actor’s favorite verse is Matthew 6:22. When the doctor came in with papers where “blank was born at 6:22 PM,” the parents knew it was Levi.

Now, Matthew and Camilla have three beautiful, healthy children: Levi, 9, Vida, 8, and Livingston, 5. The kids are so lucky to have such a wonderful father! We wish the family health and happiness.
