Matthew McConaughey has won multiple Oscar awards and is famous for many roles, including the lead in “Dallas Buyers Club” and HBO’s “True Detective.” He is a true American patriot, who has annoyed liberals by defending traditional marriage and supporting his favorite NFL team – the Washington Redskins.

He is a father of three children. And now, Matthew announced his wife Camila just became a U.S. citizen!

Unlike millions of immigrants who have broken American laws, the Brazilian model took the rigorous tests and waited in line. When she came to America, she could barely speak English. She has come a long way since then!

And, perhaps more importantly, she officially became a Texan, too!

McConaughey tweeted a photo of his family after the ceremony of citizenship for his wife of three years, Camila: ‘Congratulations Camila on getting your U.S. citizenship today – another fellow and great American.’

The Brazilian model shared her own thoughts with her fans:

She tweeted: ‘First day back and look what I just went thru. It is with great pride and honor that I am happy to say I now hold an American passport!’ And ‘I have so much respect and appreciation for this country… #newuscitizen.’

As The Daily Mail reported, her story is the true American dream:

Camila told The View back in 2013 she worked as a maid when she first came to the States at the age of 19, and that she could barely speak English at the time.

She said: ‘My father always told me, “Before you become a queen you have to learn how to take care of your own things.”

‘So I knew how to do all of it, but I had never really done it on a daily basis. So I was cleaning houses and I started working restaurants.’

Camila grew up in a farming family in Belo Horizonte in Brazil, and at the age of 15 visited her aunt in California and decided she was not going back. After years of hard work she started a career in modelling and has never looked back.

And fans on Twitter cheered the happy news!
