McConaughey Deals With A Meddling Mom; KStew "Speaks Vaguely"S

  • Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend Camila Alves are in a committed relationship and have an 18-month-old son, but her mother wants Matt to put a ring on it, as it were:

"Camila's mother is very traditional, and she's worried that since they are not married, Matthew could leave her daughter high and dry with two kids if he falls out of love with her," says a source.

She doesn't seem to have a say in this. [MSNBC via National Enquirer]
