Matthew McConaughey and Other Celeb Dads Welcoming Baby Number Three This Year

Yahoo Contributor Network

Newlyweds Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are adding to their brood!

Less than a month after walking down the aisle, McConaughey announced that the couple are expecting their third child together. The 42-year-old actor broke the news via Twitter on July 4, saying "Happy birthday, America, more good news. Camila and I are expecting our 3rd child, God bless, just keep liven."'

The couple have been together since 2006, when the "Magic Mike" star met the Brazilian model (30) in a Los Angeles bar. They have since had two children together, a son named Levi (3) and a daughter named Vida (2). The duo wed at their Texas ranch on June 10 in a Southern-style weekend event, with stars Reese Witherspoon and Woody Harrelson in attendance.

When asked how she was adjusting to married life, the bride said, "We've been living a married life for over six years now. 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."

There's no word yet on when the baby is due, but we're guessing it will be sometime this winter. In the meantime, here's a look at which other celebrity dads will welcome - or have welcomed - baby number three this year.

Ben Affleck

On February 27, Ben Affleck (39) and wife Jennifer Garner (40) welcomed their third child together, a baby boy named Samuel Garner Affleck. Baby Sam joins his two big sisters, Violet (6) and Seraphina (3), who are often seen walking, playing sports, or visiting the farmer's market with their very hands-on parents.

Jason Lee

Actor Jason Lee's wife Ceren gave birth to a baby boy, Sonny Lee, on June 17. The new addition made his debut in Los Angeles, weighing in at seven pounds, six ounces. Jason and Ceren have a 3-year-old daughter named Casper, and the "My Name is Earl" star has a son named Pilot Inspektor (8) from his relationship with actress Beth Riesgraf.

Barry Watson

"7th Heaven" star Barry Watson (38) and partner Natasha Gregson Wagner (41) had a baby girl named Clover Clementyne on May 30. Though this is the first child for Wagner (best known for her roles in "The 4400" and "High Fidelity" and for being the daughter of actress Natalie Wood), Watson has two sons, Oliver (7) and Felix (4), with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" star Tracy Hutson.

Drew Brees

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (33) is expecting his third child with wife Brittany. The college sweethearts married in February 2003 and welcomed their first son, Baylen Robert, in 2009. Brittany delivered their second son, Bowen Christopher, in October 2010. Baby number three - maybe a girl this time - will arrive in August.

Graham Elliot

"Masterchef" Graham Elliot is expecting his third son this September! Elliot (35) says he and wife Allie plan to name the baby boy "Jedediah Pope" in honor of family members. The couple have a son named Conrad (20 months) together, and Elliot has a son Mylo (5) from a previous marriage. Make way for some gourmet baby food!

Congrats to all the expectant dads (and moms)! Have fun on diaper duty!
