Their first son Levi was given his name for a reason. The actor explained to Good Morning America that they chose a biblical name because of the time the boy was born.

McConaughey is a Christian and attends a non-denominational church. He credits his faith in God for his happy family and the success he has achieved. In the interview, the actor revealed that his favorite Bible verse was Matthew 6:22 – “If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.” When they welcomed their first son into the world in 2008, they received a paper with the exact time of birth. The couple were astonished when they saw 6:22 pm. The actor felt it was not just a coincidence. Levi is another name for Matthew in the Bible, so they went with Levi.
