Camila Alves Has Officially Gained United States (and Texas!) Citizenship

It’s old news that former Sexiest Man Alive and Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is taken (sorry ladies), but there’s some new news about his wifey: as of today, his wife Camila is a legal citizen of the United States!

Camila, the Brazilian model, first came to the U.S. when she was just 19 and worked as a maid. She could barely speak English, and she’s really come a long way since then. On her new 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!’

‘I have so much respect and appreciation for this country… #newuscitizen.’

But Camila isn’t the only one celebrating today! McConaughey tweeted his support for his wife that sparked a whole slew of congratulatory tweets. And some were keen to notice that she’s not just any U.S. citizen; she’s a TEXAN!

SHARE if you’re a proud American!

America just gained another stellar citizen.
