Matthew McConaughey Engaged to Camila Alves, Mel Gibson’s Divorce Payout, and Robert De Niro a Father Again


Matthew McConaughey engaged to Camila Alves

Did you have a good holiday?  Was it as good as Matthew McConaughey’s?  Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves

If you got a fiancée for Christmas, then you and the actor both have something in common!

The star surprised fans through his WhoSay page over the weekend by announcing his engagement to Camila Alves.

A picture of the couple sitting near a Christmas tree and sneaking a smooch accompanied the announcement. The caption for the pic read, “Just asked Camila to marry me.”


McConaughey, 42, and Alves, 28, met way back when in 2006, although it wasn’t until the following year that they confirmed that they were dating.

The couple already has two children together.  Levi is 3 and Vida is 1. There’s no word yet on where or when the wedding will be.  

Perhaps he’ll announce that on WhoSay, too!

Robert De Niro a father again at 68 
A big ol’ congratulations goes out to Robert De Niro.   

Why? Because there’s a new baby in his life.  And no, it’s not a grandchild, although at his age that is exactly what you’d be expecting to hear.

The 68-year-old actor has a brand spankin’ new daughter!

He and wife Grace Hightower De Niro (56) welcomed the new bundle of joy thanks to a surrogate.  And unlike a lot of other stars, they named their daughter something quite normal.  Little Helen Grace joins big brother Elliot, who is 13-years-old.

De Niro has quite a brood going on now.  The actor now has 6 kids, including 16-year-old twin boys with his ex Toukie Smith and two children that he fathered with Diahnne Abbott.  

Wonder if there are any more little ones in De Niro’s future?

Mel Gibson’s divorce payout

Mel Gibson’s divorce has been finalized.  And man, the outcome is a doozie!!  mel gibson robyn moore

Apparently his divorce is being touted as having the largest reported payout in Hollywood history.  

During the proceedings, which took place in an LA courtroom, the actor and his now ex-wife dissolved their 30 year marriage, during which they had 7 children. Because there was no prenup in place, Robyn Moore was able to take the actor to the cleaners.  

She was awarded half of all the money that the actor made while they were married. If you know anything about Gibson, then you know his worth was once estimated at around a whopping $850.  Do the math.  That’s right!  Moore is reportedly walking away from the marriage with around $400 million!!

She’s one lucky divorcee!
