Matthew McConaughey's Son Looks Just Like Him in Rare Instagram Photo

McConaughey opened up about parenthood, calling it his "favorite job."

It looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree in Matthew McConaughey's family. Model and actor Camila Alves McConaughey, who's married to the Oscar winner, posted a new photo of the couple's eldest son, Levi, to her Instagram account, and it's clear those curly-haired, bongo-playing genes run deep, because 12-year-old Levi is his dad's mini-me.

In the picture, Levi and Camila stare intently at the skillet cookie they've made together in celebration of the recent release of McConaughey's memoir, Greenlights.

While McConaughey has played his cards close to the vest about his children in the past, it's clear the star is one proud papa. In a new interview with Parade, McConaughey opened up about family life, calling parenthood his "favorite job."

McConaughey, who also shares Vida, 10, and Livingston, 7, with Alves McConaughey, said that quarantining with his wife and kids has strengthened their bond. "Our family unit's gotten tighter," said the star. McConaughey revealed that the family has a ritual of expressing their annoyances to one another over dinner every few weeks, noting that the routine helps the group "recalibrate."

While McConaughey has largely kept his family out of the spotlight, the actor says that he wouldn't mind if his kids followed in his footsteps eventually.

"It would be kind of cool if I looked up in five years and the McConaughey clan, my two sons and my daughter, are their own production entity," he admitted.

McConaughey isn't the only star who's twinning with his little ones, however. Read on to discover which Hollywood kids look just like their famous folks, and for other famous families, here are Celebrities You Didn't Know Were Siblings.
