Who doesn’t want birthday wishes from Matthew McConaughey? The movie star is celebrating his wife’s birthday on social media today (Jan. 28).

Brazilian model, Camila Alves McConaughey celebrates her 39th birthday today. And husband, Matthew McConaughey, is sharing his love for her via Twitter. McConaughey shared a photo of himself with Camila. Along with the photo, he wrote, “Thank you for being born @iamcamilaalves”

How Did Matthew McConaughey And Camila Alves Meet?

The couple has been together since 2006. The two met in a Hollywood night club. Funny enough, McConaughey said that he had just decided to stop looking for a partner. During an interview, Matthew admitted that he “was trying too hard” to find someone.

“I was like, ‘Wait, just wait. Be yourself. She’ll come if she’s supposed to come. And if she doesn’t, that’s okay, you’re still a good man, McConaughey,'” said McConaughey.

However, fate stepped in and McConaughey saw Alves walking across the club.

“That’s when she showed up, and she moved right to left in front of my eyes across that club. It was as if she was floating. And I did not say, ‘Who is that?’ I said, ‘What is that?'”

McConaughey tried to wave her over but it didn’t work. So he walked over and invited Alves and her friend to join him at his table. However, the movie star was a bit thrown when Alves started speaking Portuguese. Luckily, McConaughey knew just enough of the language to carry on a conversation and impress Alves. The two went on their first date three days later and have been together ever since. The two married in 2012 and have three children.

“I knew then that the next night I wanted to go on another date … And I’ve been wanting to go on a date with her for the last nine years. And not with anybody else,” said McConaughey.
