Matthew McConaughey Reveals Meaning Behind Newborn Son Livingston's Name

Matthew McConaughey has that proud papa glow!

The 43-year-old actor, whose wife Camila Alves gave birth to their newborn son Livingston just over a week ago, was all smiles when E!'s own Alicia Quarles chatted with him about his growing family Monday night at the NY Film Critics Circle Awards.

"I have three children now," McConaughey gushed. "We just had a very healthy young son named Livingston."

So what's the meaning behind little Livingston's moniker? "It just means Livingston, actually," the Magic Mike star smiled. "There's not a big history behind it."

Really?

"In some religious texts it meant like grace of God," McConaughey continued, adding, "but at that time, where the name came from, they were giving a lot of names by what your occupation was. Like Baker came from a person who was actually a baker. So I'm going with the art of living."

Makes sense to us!
