Matthew McConaughey's newborn son Levi will be learning to surf as soon as he can walk, according to his mother Camila Alves.
Camila - who gave birth to Levi, her first child with 'Surfer Dude' star Matthew, on July 7 - is determined to ensure her son follows in his dad's ocean-bound footsteps.
She said: "Levi is going to have his first surf lesson when he can start walking!"
Brazilian model Camila also revealed the secret behind her rapid weight loss following the birth.
She added to US TV show 'Extra': "Breast feeding is the best diet you can have. I'm not out there with a trainer seven days a week but I am doing some very home-styled workouts."
Matthew recently revealed he and Camila had kept her placenta, and are planning to bury it in an orchard to help fertilise the land there.
He said: "When I was in Australia, they had a placenta tree that was on the river. It was gorgeous. All the placentas of all that tribe, all that clan, whatever aboriginal tribe that was, all the placentas went under that one tree and it was this huge behemoth of just health and strength.
"This tree was just growing taller and stronger above the rest of Mother Nature around it. Ours is going to bear some wonderful fruit."
