It’s a very merry holiday week for Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila.

The couple welcomed a baby boy on Friday in Austin, Texas, the actor confirms.

“Camila gave birth to our third child yesterday morning. Our son, Livingston Alves McConaughey was born at 7:43 a.m. on 12.28.12. He greeted the world at 9 lbs. and 21 inches,” McConaughey announced via Twitter.

“Bless up and thank you for your well wishes. Happy New year, and just keep livin, Camila and Matthew McConaughey.”

The pair, also parents to Vida, who turns 3 next month, and Levi, 4, announced the pregnancy just one month after their June nuptials in Texas.

Camila, 29, joked that even as she put on pregnancy pounds, her actor husband, 43, was losing weight – dramatically – for The Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays the real-life Ron Woodruff, who contracted HIV.

“We have gone the complete opposite direction eating wise, but we’re navigating it,” she said last summer. “But I don’t really have cravings yet.”

McConaughey’s new movie, Mud, will be released April 26.
