Matthew McConaughey’s brother Rooster says his little brother is one lucky guy: “It’s good to have a boy the first time ’round!”
He adds jokingly: “You can get away with dropping ’em a couple times, and they’ll still be okay. Can’t really do that with a little girl.”
Matthew and Camila’s son, Levi Alves McConaughey, was born on July 6th at 6:22 p.m. in Los Angeles.
“He’s probably a bit tired right now, probably been sitting around that hospital just staring at the little guy,” Rooster told People magazine. Rooster, 54, is the father of two, including 2-year-old Miller Lyte (yes, as in the beer).
“The other day I told him, ‘Don’t worry if other people want to hold him for that first year. That’s okay.’ Our dad always used to say that,” Rooster said. “Hell, you wanna wait until their neck muscles get stronger anyway. That’s when the fun starts. I like ’em when they get a bit tougher. I told him, they don’t really get fun until they’re about a year old anyway.”
Roughhousing aside, Rooster says he’s certain his little brother will be a good father.
“That guy is going to make one helluva a dad,” he shared.
OMG! Miller Lyte! That’s fantastic! 🙂
