Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves, who hit the Cannes Film Festival… (Anne-Christine Poujoulatanne…)
Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves appear to be making their longtime lifestyle official: The two are reportedly getting married this weekend in Texas.
About two dozen friends and family members will gather for a quiet "weekend affair" in McConaughey's home state, sources told E! Online exclusively. Staff hired to pull off the secret soiree had to sign non-disclosure agreements, the site said Friday.
Though"Magic Mike"star McConaughey, 42, and his fiancee, 30, have been together since 2006 and have two children — and according to Alves have been "living a married life" for most of that time — they didn't get engaged until this past Christmas.
Alves, a model and handbag designer, talked about their relationship back in March, telling ET Canada, "We've been living a married life for over six years now. We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together."
Still, she said, marriage would be good for daughter Vida, 2, and son Levi, who turns 4 next month. The latter "actually understands what it means now that Mama’s going to have the same last name as they have."
McConaughey, who was People's sexiest man in 2005, told the magazine in August of that year that he expected he'd get married eventually, when he was "with the right woman and it's the right time."
We'll see soon enough if this weekend is in fact "the right time."
