Oscar-winning actor and former ‘Sexiest Man Alive,’ Matthew McConaughey is also a father of three and the very proud husband of a new American citizen.
McConaughey tweeted a photo of his family after the ceremony of citizenship for his wife of three years, Camila: ‘Congratulations Camila on getting your U.S. citizenship today – another fellow and great American.’
The Brazilian model, who could barely speak English when she arrived in the United States, shared her own thoughts with her fans:
‘First day back and look what I just went thru. It is with great pride and honor that I am happy to say I now hold an American passport!’
‘I have so much respect and appreciation for this country… #newuscitizen.’
Twitter lit up with congratulations, not only for becoming a legal citizen of the greatest country in the world, but also for officially becoming a TEXAN!

According to the Daily Mail:
Camila told The View back in 2013 she worked as a maid when she first came to the States at the age of 19, and that she could barely speak English at the time.
She said: ‘My father always told me, “Before you become a queen you have to learn how to take care of your own things.”
‘So I knew how to do all of it, but I had never really done it on a daily basis. So I was cleaning houses and I started working restaurants.’
Camila grew up in a farming family in Belo Horizonte in Brazil, and at the age of 15 visited her aunt in California and decided she was not going back. After years of hard work she started a career on modelling and has never looked back.
@McConaughey that’s a great addition to America! Well done matt!
