Joe Scarnici/Getty Images for CORZO Tequila(LOS ANGELES) — There was a rock in Camila Alves’ Christmas stocking this year, but it wasn’t a block of coal.  It was an engagement ring from longtime love Matthew McConaughey.

The 42-year old actor popped the question to his Brazilian girlfriend of five years on Christmas Day.

McConaughey tweeted a picture of the couple kissing in front of a Christmas tree with this message: “Just asked Camila to marry me, #MerryChristmas.”

They have two children together: son Levi, 3, and daughter Vida, 23 months. McConaughey most recently starred in the movie  Lincoln Lawyer.
