Camila Alves and Matthew McConaughey have named their son Levi Alves McConaughey.

Matthew tells OK! magazine, "Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person. 

Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: ‘If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.’"

Baby Levi’s middle name is his mother Camila’s last name. "We wanted to incorporate her family name," explained McConaughey.

To all their well-wishers and fans, Matthew and Camila have also released the following statement:

"We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin’." –Matthew David McConaughey and Camila Maria Saraiva de Araujo Alves
