Baby number three for Matthew

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are expecting their third child together.

The Magic Mike actor took to his Twitter account yesterday (4 July) to share the good news with his followers.

He tweeted: "Happy birthday America, more good news, Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep livin."

Alves tweeted the same message 20 minutes prior: "Happy birthday America, more good news, Matthew and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep livin," followed by: "Thank you soo much for the good wishes!"

The couple tied the knot a month ago – after five years of dating – in a quiet ceremony at their home in Austin, Texas surrounded by close friends and family.

When questioned about their wishes for the future, the pair told People magazine: "More of the same — and more family!"

Before tying the knot, McConaughey (42) said he already felt married to his model girlfriend (29), with whom he raises Levi (3) and Vida (2), because of his commitment to her and the life they've built together.

He explained: "We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together. So we've been living a married life this whole time."

McConaughey popped the question to Alves on Christmas Day.
