Alves Marries Matthew McConaughey…

Camila Alves is now a mother and a missus…

The 30-year-old Brazilian model, television host and fashion designer married her love of six years and the father of her children, Magic Mike actor Matthew McConaughey, in Austin on Saturday, according to Us Weekly.

“There were about 100 of his close friends and family there,” one wedding guest tells the magazine of the “high-end,” campout-themed event. “[The ceremony] was very emotional. There was a moment when . . . [Matthew] leaned down and whispered something in [Camila’s] ear and you could see a tear coming down her face. Everyone let out a collective sigh.”

Following the ceremony, guests — including Woody Harrelson and filmmaker Richard Linklater — celebrated all night long, camping out in state-of-the-art tents set up on McConaughey and Alves’ property.

“It’s definitely a campground, but they weren’t exactly roughing it,” one source explained. “They have showers, restrooms, and air conditioning. It’s very unique, high-end camping.”

Alves and the 42-year-old actor, who met at a bar in Los Angeles in 2006, have two children together, 3-year-old Levi and 2-year-old Vida. McConaughey proposed to his Brazilian-born love this past Christmas.

“Just asked Camila to marry me, #MerryChristmas,” the actor tweeted December 25, posting a sweet photo of the newly-engaged pair sharing a smooch.

“I found the woman I wanna make a family with, hopefully live our life out together,” he declared to Esquire magazine in March 2011. Still, the head-over-heels pair saw no reason to rush things, because, as Alves told ET Canada this past March, they already felt like a married couple.

“We’ve been living a married life for over six years now,” explained Alves. “We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we’ve built a life together. So we’ve been living a married life this whole time.”

Added the former host of Bravo’s Shear Genius, “A lot of people, sometimes they’re so stuck on ‘I gotta get married, I gotta get married,’ that they forget that the really important thing is to have a healthy home, a healthy family, a healthy family for your kids and to have everything going in a good, peaceful way.”

As young as her children are, Alves admitted her kids were excited when their parents decided to make their union official.

“Levi actually understands what it means now that mama’s going to have the same last name as they have, so that’s neat!” the model explained.

So what about plans to expand their family?

Teased Alves, “We’ll see!”
