LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey announced on his Web site that he and his Brazilian model girlfriend, Camila Alves, are expecting a baby.

"My girlfriend Camila and I made a baby together ... it's three months growing in her womb and all looks healthy and lively so far," the actor wrote. "We are stoked and wowed by this miracle of creation and this gift from God, and so excited for the adventure that will come in raising this child, being mother and a father, and shepherding him or her through this life. ...

Wish us the best, keep us in your prayers, and God bless evolution. Thanks for being fans of me and my work and now this new and miraculous chapter in my life, as me and Camila and our child do our best to just keep living."

McConaughey, who has starred in "We Are Marshall," "The Wedding Planner" and "A Time to Kill," previously dated actresses Sandra Bullock and Penelope Cruz.

He has reportedly been dating Alves for more than a year.

"He is euphoric. He couldn't be happier," McConaughey's spokesman Alan Nierob told People.com.
