Couple Seals Engagement With Kiss

Camila Alves woke up to one heck of a stocking stuffer on Christmas Day. The host of Bravo's Shear Genius is officially engaged to marry baby daddy Matthew McConaughey.

Well, it took him long enough! Christmas Day brought a shiny diamond engagement ring and the vow of wedding bells in the new year for Camila Alves.

The longtime companion of actor Matthew McConaughey accepted a holiday proposal from the screen star over the weekend.

"Just asked Camila to marry me, #MerryChristmas," the actor posted to his WhoSay page on Sunday, along with a snapshot of the happy couple engaged in a lip-lock.

This is big news for the Lincoln Lawyer actor, who stated his indifference about the whole idea of holy matrimony in a 2008 interview with Playboy magazine.

"I believe in the institution [of marriage], but I don't feel you have to marry. A kid just needs a mom and a dad," Matt said.

The actor and the Brazilian model -- host of Bravo's Shear Genius -- met at a Los Angeles bar in 2006. They are the parents of two: 3-year-old son Levi and daughter, Vida, born in January 2010.

"I found the woman… I wanna make a family with, hopefully live our life out together," Matthew, 42, told Esquire magazine of Alves last March.

Matthew's own parents, James and Kay, were married and divorced three times… to each other! Grandma Kay has made no secret of her desire to see Matthew and Camila tie the knot.

She told her famous son as much when he called to tell her about Levi's pending arrival.

"He said, 'Mom, are you ready?' And I said, 'What?' And he said, 'Camilla and I are going to have a baby.' And I go, 'Oh, that's wonderful!' Then I said, 'So when are y'all getting married?… This is a question that 76-year-old mothers ask, Matthew.' Out in Hollywood they get their sequence all mixed up. But I have dropped the subject. He is going to be a wonderful dad. He likes to have fun. He won't put up with whining. But it's going to be a happy child."

No word yet on a possible wedding date.

Matthew is not engaged to Camila, she has schizophrenia and sleeps with women. He would never marry a 29 year old loony toon. Matthew is engaged to the Monarch of all Nations, Queen Senath CarMel Anderson is the mother of Matthew's twin daughters, Princess Priscilla and Princess Penelope McConaughey.Camila lied to the tabloids. Matthew and Queen Senath don't like people or their lifestyle and Matthew would never leave the Queen and his twins for another woman. They are her only family. Queen Senath is a doctor of pscyhology and psychiatry and paranormal psychologist. Matthew and Senath are both psychic and walk in trances.

Reallllllly? Does anyone out there care as little as I do? For as good looking as Matt is, he has proven over the years (thru his photos) that he will NEVER love anyone as much or more, than himself. It was a sad day when the 'happy couple' introduced their 1st child to us on the cover of People magazine. Camilla couldn't have looked more radiant as a new mom, in love with her newborn infant. She was seated, gazing lovingly at her child. MATT, on th other hand, stood next to the 2 of them, assumed his "pose" & stared/smiled straight at the camera....almost as if to say, "How YOU doin'?" He must have protested having to wear a shirt that day... A true, true man would have stepped up to the plate the day he found out his woman was pregnant----knowing they were going to stay together, raise the child AND have a second!!!!! He's nothing but a coward in my book. Camilla, you're a smart, sassy woman. You can do exponentially better than that egocentric creep! Send him back to his trailer & make him wear deoderant for God's sake!!!!
