Matthew McConaughey's partner Camila Alves has banned him from having sex with her for 40 days as she recovers from the birth of their three-week-old daughter
Matthew McConaughey has been banned from having sex for 40 days.
The actor's partner Camila Alves gave birth to the couple's second child, daughter Vida, three weeks ago and she has told him he has to wait until they can make love again.
The Brazilian beauty said: "Where I come from - Brazil - we believe in something we call a 40-day break after the baby. You have to let your body do its own thing. You give it time to recover and let everything settle down.
"You kind of respect all the hard work your body has just done and give it a break. For these 40 days, you really take it easy. By that I mean no sex, light and healthy food, no trips to the gym. Then, after 40 days, you are good to go."
Although Matthew might be looking forward to having sex again, Camila - who also has an 18-month-old son, Levi, with the Hollywood hunk - can't wait until she can exercise once more.
She added to website Stylist.com: "I confess, I am getting a little anxious to work out. I miss it. Not just to get my body back in shape, but for me, for my head!"
