Today marks Matthew McConaughey's 50th birthday, and while normally the birthday boy is the one getting the gifts, he's decided to give us the greatest gift of all. An official Matthew McConaughey Instagram account! The legend himself has finally decided to give social media a try, and our feeds are already a million times better because of it.
November 4 marks the birth of not only Matthew McConaughey, but now, his first Instagram account ever! What's the next step after creating a profile? Creating a bio, of course. If you look closely at McConaughey's you'll see the mention of the star's home, Austin, Texas. We get the feeling Austinites everywhere are celebrating yet another shoutout from the star, after all, everything is bigger and better in the Lone Star State.
"Husband. Father. Actor. Minister of Culture. Professor. Creative Director. AustinFC. JKLivin. Pickle Expert." reads the man of many talents' Instagram bio. Austin F.C. stands for Austin Football Club, which McConaughey actually co-owns. Not a huge shocker, considering you can spot him at almost any Texas sports team game each and every season.
Big stars such as Reese Witherspoon and Roger Clemens are some of many that have left comments on McConaughey's first-ever Instagram post, where he goes into detail on why he decided to create an account.
“I’m looking forward to sharing who I am with you, I’m looking forward to seeing if who I am translates, if what I want to share translates,” Matthew explains in his first Instagram post. We are excited to see what he has in store for us!
He may only have one post as of right now, but his excitement to share a part of himself with the world makes us believe there will be many more in the future. If I were you, I'd type his @officiallymcconaughey into the search bar as quickly as you can to become part of his increasingly large following. Happy birthday, legend!
