Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves Welcome Baby Girl & Her Name Is ...

Matthew McConaughey, Camilla AlvesMatthew McConaughey & wife Camila Alves got a late Christmas present when their third child, a girl, was born yesterday morning. A holiday baby -- sweet!

The couple, who just got married in June but have been together since 2006, have two other children, Levi, 4, and Vida, 2.

McConaughey, 43, and Alves, 30, didn't find out beforehand whether the baby was a boy or girl -- showing the same penchant for surprises they had with her big brother and sister. Talk about discipline! And so cute too, right? The Magic Mike star has called doing it that way a "wonderful surprise." Couldn't agree more, and it's so rare these days that both parents agree to waiting. (Can you tell I'm a little jealous? I lost that battle.)

Now about Baby No. 3's name ...

Unfortunately, we don't know her gosh darn name yet -- sorry to trick you like that. And the suspense is killing us! (Well, me. Well, sort of. I do have a life, you know.)

To be honest, we really don't know much about Baby Girl McConaughey-Alves at all, except that she's got to be beautiful with those two as her parents (and have you seen her siblings?). Her weight, height, and exact place of birth are still under wraps, as are any other details.

What we do know is that she was born the morning of Dec. 28 in Austin, Texas, where her parents live with their other children and where they tied the knot over the summer. And then only a couple of weeks later, Matthew was announcing that his lovely bride was pregnant yet again. On Twitter, on July 4, because actors do those sorts of things.

But back to what they named their new arrival. A lot of, shall we say, iiiinteresting celeb baby names have already been taken recently. There's Blue Ivy (Beyonce and Jay-Z), Vivien (Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen), Olive (Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman), Penelope (Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick), Maxwell (Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson), Marlowe (Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge), and of course Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence (Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson). Somehow I'm doubting that last one was in the running though.

Anyway, we are just tickled pink (get it? pink? because it's a girl? maybe I should go back to bed ...) over the adorable couple's news, and we hope that three's a charm for their family. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and congratulations, Matthew and Camila! We're thrilled for you. Now throw us a bone, will you? WHAT'S HER NAME?!

What do you think Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves should name their third baby?

Here's a crazy thought- congratulate them and leave them alone? You aren't slighted because you don't know it.

uhhh - now I will never come back for 'news' - first of all they had a BOY and they named him Livingston. Not a GIRL. That was a super lame way to just get more traffic and you are now OUT of my bookmarks!
