  • Beatrice

    I think Gisele’s dog is called vida. Vida in portuguese means life.

  • Luciana

    Vida is also life in spanish. poor girl.

  • Priscila

    “I think Gisele’s dog is called vida. Vida in portuguese means life”
    LOL , it’s true!

    I love them, and love the meaning of the name, but as a brazilian I think it sounds really weird, Vida it’s not a name…
    Must be a cute baby, just like Levi !

  • cece

    nothing is wrong with naming your daughter life, just like in north america ppl name their children faith hope destiny etc

  • CanadaGirl

    Oh, no. He’s definitely outnumbered now!
    Aside – Is he still living in the trailer?

  • Mai

    I think Vida sounds beautiful

  • Pippi

    Congrats! I know she is beautiful.

    Vida??? Quite an unusual name but then again there are other weirder baby names in Hollywood
    Anyway congratulations to them and hope that they have a wonderful life together!!!

    Welcome to the world baby vida

  • Anna

    Congrats to them!!

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    ..`what`a fugly couple.

  • ^_^

    Vida is unique and different. And it’s so cute how they had a daughter even though I was feeling a boy the whole time she was preggers. Can’t wait to see what she looks like. Hopefully with this child, she resembles Matthew, since Levi took after his mama.

  • elisa

    Vida…… sound very strange perhaps because it’s not a real name!!!!
    why celebrities strive to find the most unusual name for their children?? honor, vida ( or Life), zuma c´mon think in your child future !!!

    anyways Congrats to them for her daugther

  • Go Ask Alice

    Vida can get a pass simply because her mom is from another country. Yeah, Vida=life.

    Ok, we all take Spainsh and Port. classes.

    I think ViVi is cute.

    I do believe in you name your kid what you what, but when you give your kids dog names or way out weird names it is not unique.
    Bronx, Banjo, Zuma, Vida, Honor, whatever.

    Anyway,the this girl Camila and Matthe3wdod live a wuiet life so that is nice.
    God for them.How cute they have their boy and now their girl.

  • Just me

    Oh, Matthew! You need to travel or read more. Not only Vida means “life” in portuguese also in spanish. Idiot!

  • Wila

    Vida is not a common name in Brasil although it does mean Life in Portuguese. The mother is not very attractive I think.

  • L

    Agree. She isn’t pretty at all.

  • http://Justjared jenny.s.

    @Just me: You’re calling him an idiot because of that?? LMAO, I mean geez just because he didnt say it was also spanish??? wow, I personally don’t find anything wrong with that because who really cares if it means the same in more languages than one, he got his point across. His wife is portuguese or brazillian, she speaks portuguese and they were going by the Portuguese meaning of it. Period. No need to fuss over it.

  • Joyce

    Vida means Life in Portuguese

  • http://Justjared jenny.s.

    @jenny.s.: Not wife, I mean girlfriend or ‘longtime love’ as JJ always puts it

  • anna

    His girlfriend isn’t Portuguese she is Brazilian, she only speaks Portuguese the official language of Brazil. I wonder if they will ever marry? Matthew doesn’t seem to be the marrying kind.

  • lil

    why camilla is so ugly in this photo???

  • Tigerman

    Beats the hell out of “Apple”….

  • http://Justjared jenny.s.

    @anna: Hence the fact that I said Portuguese OR brazillian… I just wasn’t sure which one

  • Esther

    Vida is a beautiful and unusual name. It means life in Portuguese and Spanish, but it’s obvious that Matthew speaks only the Portuguese meaning because Camila speaks this language.
    Sorry for my English (I’m Spanish)

  • Hate that idiot

    What does “just keep livin’” actually mean? Like what, I’m going to just decide to stop living? Would it be possible to stop living for the next few days so that I can get some time off work, but then resume living again afterwards?

  • lakers fan in boston

    wow, u picked a rough photo of her didnt u jared =p
    weird name, i really dont like when ppl name their kids after nouns

  • Liset Lee

    Congratulations to Matthew and his family. I was always love him in Reign of Fire. Its such an amazing movie. His character is classic. I’ve seen some others movies with him in that are good too. God Bless x

  • natalia

    i dont like hispanic people

  • Antonia

    Camilia is not Hispanic, she is mixed race Pardo who are the second largest population in Brazil. Neither is her culture Hispanic.

  • Brook

    There is a big difference between saying someone is Portuguese or brazilian especially when they look like her. Matt should have married one of his co-stars.

  • ehtn

    his daughter looks darker

  • No Thanks

    Dark and ugly. She needs a nose job and a face and color transfere, she is too ugly to look at and Matthew is a drunk.

  • PooBear

    I hope the second one looks better than the first one. His son is strange looking, a little cute in an old man kind of way I guess. She is lucky to have been rescued from her favela and saved by a rich white guy, though he will probably never marry her. At least her children are American and can never be deported back to Brazil.


    She is soooooo ugly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • =Logan=

    i like the name

    and i love this couple

  • anon

    Congrats to Matthew and Camila on their new baby girl.

  • Bunny

    Has he ever dated a WHITE GIRL?

  • Not Impressed by JA

    There are a bunch of idiotic racist people in here. If Camilla is ugly , what is this guy with his short legs and unexistant lips ?
    And yes he has already dated a white girl : Penelope Cruz is a white, European woman. Last time i checked Latin europeans (Spaniard, Portuguese, Italian and French) are AS Caucasians AS Scandinanvians or Slavic or Germanic. Different groups from the same caucasian families with their own different traits, languages, ect.
    The same way that africans and asians come from different ethnic groups (Bantu, bushmen, tutsis, ect…) and i different spectre of shades, features, height, ect.
    Gisèle Bundchen (from Portuguese and German ancestry) and Alessandra Ambrioso( part Italian/ part polish)) second generation Brasilian are also WHITE and LATIN
    Hispanic and latinos share a latin CULTURE and can come from any bckgroud : You can be euro-latina, afro-latina, asian-latina, ect.

  • MMA

    She must be greatly relieved!

  • Luize

    I don´t know your face but probably you are a princess…
    lIf you have something more that shit inside your brain kill yourself…
    wake up! racism is a thing for narrow minded people…your are the perfect stupid piece of meat that deserves to end your days in the middle of garbage! please don´t have kids…make a favour to humankind !

  • Stone

    She must be GREATLY relieved!

  • Claudio

    There is no such thing as a Latin culture all those countries in South America have different cultures and the culture of Brazil is not like the Hispanic culture of Spanish speaking countries so you need to read a book about Brazil and learn the truth. Gisele is 100% German, and not Hispanic in the least. There are millions of Europeans from Germany, Italy, Britain living in Brazil but that does not make them Hispanic at all. They are still Europeans living in Brazil. Italians and French are European period just because they speak a language derived from ancient Roamnce language does not make them Latin. They have nothing to do with Hispanic people or their culture so don’t insult them by putting them in the same boat with you. Also the Romanians speak a Romance language but that doesn’t make them Hispanic either. You people think just because a certain group of people speak a language with roots in an ancient tongue that only the Vatican uses, makes them the same as you, then you are dreaming. There is no connection and there are also English words based in Latin so what that doesn’t make the English speakers today Hispanic. Immigration has changed all of that with millions of Europeans going to brazil over time but still maintaining their ethnic identity. The WHITES in Brazil are European who happen to speak Portuguese who are also Europeans. This woman isn’t Hispanic or European like 50% of the Population of Brazil.

  • Sofia

    Irish, Scots, Americans all speak English but are not the same people at all. Different cultures, mores, races, values you name it. I have been to Brazil and believe you me, they do not have a Latin/Hispanic culture. Brazil is very different and unique with a history and culture entirely set apart from its neighbors.
