He announced the pregnancy in January saying, "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 a mother and a father, and sheparding him or her through this life."
McConaughey's baby boy shares the same birthday to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's baby girl, Sunday Rose, who was also born on Monday morning.

We are both tired and elated, and are so happy to have created the greatest miracle in the world - Having a child and making a family. Now comes the greatest adventure - raising one, together."
