McConaughey married model Camila Alves in 2012 and together they share sons Levi, 13, and Livingston, 8, and daughter Vida, 11, per People. The A-list husband and wife have embodied #CoupleGoals for years. McConaughey has been open about how he and Alves take on the challenges of marriage together. "No one is perfect," the actor said of his spouse on the "Anna Faris is Unqualified" podcast.
