Camila McConaughey Embraces Her Curves After Three Kids
"But after babies it changed. I look more like a woman. Even Matthew has seen that change in me and he's completely okay with it. It's evolution."
At 30, Camila Alves McConaughey is not in denial about her changing body.
“I am definitely way curvier,” the model turned handbag designer tells PEOPLE. “My waist used to be tiny. I just saw a picture of Miley Cyrus with a little crop top and low pants and I’m like that was me growing up in Brazil!”
But now as the mom to Levi, 5, Vida, 3½, and Livingston, 8 months, McConaughey shares how her body has changed — and what her husband Matthew McConaughey thinks of her figure! — in PEOPLE’s new special issue, Gorgeous At Any Age.
When she first started dating the Dallas Buyers Club star, “I had the typical model body,” she says. “But after babies it changed. I look more like a woman. Even Matthew has seen that change in me and he’s completely okay with it. It’s evolution.”
And she doesn’t plan on fighting the aging process any time soon. “The mistake that women make these days is trying to chase their youth,” says McConaughey. “In my 20s I wanted to be hot, now I want to be healthy.”
Besides, the busy mom — who appears on QVC Friday to launch the latest collection for her line Muxo — has plenty of other things to worry about. “I’m dedicated to my family, my husband, my kids. I have a business and I want to help others when I can. So that’s where I’m standing right now.”
