Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are proud parents to their three children: Levi, the oldest at 15, daughter Vida, 13, and the youngest, ten-year-old Livingston.

The actor, 53, and his wife, 41, were spotted at the latest Austin Football Club vs Los Angeles Football Club game at the former's home arena, Q2 Stadium in Austin.

Camila shared a video of herself, Matthew, and Levi while panning across the stadium, and fans marveled at how much their teenager had grown, and he looked just as tall as his dad.

The Dazed and Confused star continued: "Because what happens a lot of times with young people and social media is they wake up in the morning and the first thing on their mind is, 'What will be a good post?' instead of, 'What do I want to do today?'"
