(Newser) – When contractions started for new mother Camila Alves, Matthew McConaughey was “right between her legs. We got tribal on it, we danced to it! I was DJing this Brazilian music," he tells OK! magazine for baby Levi’s reportedly $3 million photo debut. Despite his surfer-dude cool, the actor says, “Having a baby is a bloody, pukey, sweaty, primeval thing!”

“I said, ‘Come here, little man.’ I saw the pecker and screamed that we'd been right all along about him being a boy,” he said. “This kid has a lot to learn from us. I want him to come out being a little wiser, a little cooler, and a little happier than we are."
