Sharing a slew of sweet photos of the family-of-five, Levi wrote: "People know Matthew McConaughey as an actor and now a writer, but I know him as my father."

He went on: "The man who always makes time for us no matter what, the man who's always there for us no matter what, and the man that taught me to appreciate the journey and not just the destination."
