There’s no such thing as ‘too many,’ especially when it comes to Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves. The couple finally wed on June 10, after already having been together for six years. They are now expecting their third child. McConaughey announced his wife’s pregnancy on Twitter on July 4th, saying, “Happy Birthday America, more good news, Camila and I are expecting our third child, God Bless, just keep liven.” The lovely couple has made it clear that they didn’t need to get married right away to have a family, as 30-year-old Alves revealed to NBC’s Today, “We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we’ve built a life together. So we’ve been living a married life this whole time.” The two are glowing at their recent news and seem nothing but happy to have their family growing.
What are some ways to prepare your relationship for a third child?
Usually if you’re thinking about having a third child, then your relationshipÂ is in a good place. Here are some ways to prepare for a third child:
1. Make sure you’re stable: Having three kids is a lot of work, so you and your partner should make sure that you’re both in a stable place in your lives, to keep sane. You want to make sure you’re both financially and emotionally prepared to have another child in your world.
2. Do it for the right reasons: Having another child should be because you want a big family and because you love your partner. You shouldn’t want more kids in order to “save” a relationship.
3. Talk about it with the family: You not only have to make sure it’s something your mate wants to do, but you also have two other children with whom you should discuss having another baby. If everyone isn’t on the same page with adding another member to the family, it could end up causing problems later on.
