Sounds like there might be wedding bells this weekend for Matthew McConaughey and fiancée Camila Alves. The longtime loves are tying the knot in the “Magic Mike” star’s home state of Texas, E! News is reporting.
Much like their not-so-public romance, the ceremony is apparently going to be a low-key affair, as the duo have only invited about two dozen of their family members and friends. Despite the leaked word, workers involved in the hush-hush event were asked to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to keep details under wraps.
Alves was scheduled to be honored by the Step Up Women’s Network on Friday afternoon (June 8) with a special luncheon in Beverly Hills, but instead has planned to deliver a speech via video chat, perhaps allowing the 30-year-old Brazilian model to be close to home for wedding preparations.
McConaughey and Alves started their romance back in 2006 and have two children: 2-year-old daughter Vida and 3-year-old son Levi. The two were engaged on Christmas of last year. “Just asked Camila to marry me, Merry Christmas,” the actor wrote on his WhoSay page, accompanied by a photo of the couple kissing near their Christmas tree.
If the nuptial rumors turn out to be true, June will be a busy month for McConaughey. His upcoming stripper flick, “Magic Mike,” hits theaters June 29, starring string of A-list actors including Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer. McConaughey is also set to appear on the soundtrack for the film.
