Matthew McConaugheyMatthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila Alves, are ending the year with one more mouth to feed. Their third child was born Friday morning in Austin, Texas.

The couple kept with tradition and did not learn the sex of the baby ahead of time. Joining big brother Levi, 4, and big sister Vida, 3, is a baby girl. Neither the name nor weight of the baby were released right away.

The third pregnancy for the McConaughey family came on the heels of Matthew and Camila's wedding in June. The couple married after six years together. The ceremony was a down-home affair with camping, Southern comfort food prepared by celebrity chef Guy Fieri and lots of dancing and partying.

A guest who attended the wedding told Us Weekly, "You could definitely tell [Matthew] was in love. It was a great night for everyone."

Less than a month later, McConaughey announced on Independence Day that his wife was expecting another baby. He tweeted the news: "Happy birthday America, more good news, Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child."

The Magic Mike star has had a particularly stellar year on the big screen with a turn as a male strip club owner in the Channing Tatum film, generating some of the best reviews of his career. He also earned praise for his work in the dark comedies Bernie and Killer Joe.

Currently, McConaughey has been generating a lot of buzz for the tremendous weight loss he underwent for his role as an AIDS patient in the upcoming film The Dallas Buyers Club. He reportedly lost 30 pounds, and the actor looked emaciated in many paparazzi photos last fall.

Let's hope the actor enjoys a steak to celebrate his new arrival!
