"You know romance is not so much where you are but who you're with," Matthew McConaughey wrote.
Their anniversary is just another day in their married lives for Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves McConaughey.
On June 9, morning, McConaughey, who got married to Alves on the same date in 2012, posted an adorable and funny Instagram video of the couple sitting on a seat in front of a lobby with a view of a parking lot. "You know, romance is not so much where you are but what the tunes are where you are and who you're with. Right now, I'm here on a cozy little bench with my hot mama," the Oscar winner exclaimed while kissing Alves in the video, per Good Morning America.

"Our playlist is playing out loud underneath the canopy out front of the lobby," he added. He continued, "Happy anniversary baby," to which Alves exclaimed, "Nooo!" Before the video ends, McConaughey said, "First class or no class, baby."
Alves shared the video with a filter on Instagram as well, adding in the funny caption, "SOMEONE MUST HAVE WARNED HIM OF THE DATE. We are so romantic," the model added. "We are seating on a bench heading to work… anniversary is starting great!"

Together, the couple has three kids: daughter Vida, 13, and sons Livingston, 10, and Levi, 14. The couple has been deeply in love for more than ten years since they first met in a nightclub in Los Angeles and went on to become best-selling writers and amazing parents.
"We have a love that we never question," the Oscar winner once told PEOPLE. Before meeting Alves in 2006, McConaughey believed that his window of opportunity to meet his true love and begin a family was closing. "I mean, the clock was ticking — I was about to be 40 and my plan was to be married and have kids by that age," McConaughey recalled in 2018. "But I didn't want to play the game of starting to feel anxious because, with too much anxiety, you can't find a mate. And then you make a hasty decision."
He continued, "I knew men who had made hasty decisions and women who had done the same thing. But at that point, I wasn't hunting. And then this amazing woman walked across my field of vision and I thought, 'Who is that?' And it was Camila."
After appearing in movies like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and The Wedding Planner, McConaughey recognized he had reached a breaking point. The actor remembered thinking, "Whoa, that's become my brand." With Alves' assistance, he decided to "unbrand" at that point, even declining $14.5 million for a different rom-com in 2010. "A good woman gives a man courage and confidence — the courage to have the confidence to go and do it, to not be worried as much or consider as much what the rest of the world thinks," he said.
