Matthew McConaughey was gushing over his wife, Brazilian born Camila Alves on twitter.

While it is not a terribly uncommon occurrence to hear the McConaughey spouses speaking so highly of each other, Matthew had a very special reason to celebrate yesterday.

The usually private actor shared a very cute snap on social media to welcome his wife to the U.S as an official citizen.

The 33-year old model and mom of three children was spotted in a U.S courthouse after she received her official citizenship.

She said: “First day back and look what I just went thru. It is with great pride and honor that I am happy to say I now hold an American passport!”

When Camilla first arrived in the U.S she worked as a maid before she and Matthew married in 2012. The couple are parents to three children; Levi, Vida and Livingston.

In 2013 Camilla said that when she first moved from Brazil she could speak very little English at 15 years old but after years of hard work she managed to get her career in modelling to take off.

The former World’s Sexiest Man Alive titleholder Matthew seemed to be a very proud husband indeed as he wrote his welcome message for his nearly 2 million followers to see.
