And if she doesn’t come, that’s okay, you’re still a good man, McConaughey,'” he said. he told People magazine. . “That’s when she came in, and she moved right and left in front of my eyes through that club. It was like she was floating. And I didn’t say, ‘Who is that? ? I said, ‘What is this?’ And then I introduced myself.”

“Since that night I haven’t wanted to spend time with another woman, I certainly haven’t wanted to sleep with anyone else,” he continued. “I never wanted to have kids with anyone other than her. We have a love that we never question.”

On Monday, Camila spoke to Fox News Digital about her family’s upbringing in Texas.

“That was awesome,” the author shared. “It really embodies our belief system, especially the ones I grew up with, like going to church every Sunday saying, ‘Yes, ma’am,’ or ‘No, sir.’ I grew up saying those things coming from a farming family. For me, being from Brazil and then coming to Texas, I discovered a lot of similarities in terms of what families practice here, especially going to church on Sundays, and being very interested in the outdoors. It was a great transition.

“We lived in Malibu for many years and having the paparazzi outside our door every day – every day – when it becomes normal you don’t realize how much it actually affects the things you do until you go and get out of this,” she continued. “Children have a private way of growing up. So from that perspective, it was very important.”
