Matthew McConaughey is getting a life.

The Fool's Gold star and girlfriend Camila Alves welcomed daughter Vida Alves McConaughey just after midnight Sunday.

"Happy New Year everybody!! On Sunday, Jan. 3rd at 12:13 a.m., Camila gave birth to a healthy 7lb. 7oz. baby girl," McConaughey announced on his website. "Vida is Portuguese for 'life' and that's what God gave us this morning."

The 40-year-old bongo enthusiast announced back on Father's Day that he and Alves were expecting their second baby. The couple are parents of a 17-month-old son, Levi.

Both mother and child are doing well.

"Camila's recovering wonderfully and we are both truly honored to welcome this little lady into our family," the doting dad said. "Thanks for all of your well wishes and prayers along the way."
