Camila Alves McConaughey: three kids is hard work

You might say Camila Alves has it all: three gorgeous kids (3-month-old Livingston; Vida, 3; Levi, 4), a movie star husband ( Matthew McConaughey) and a fabulous career. Did we mention she was super, super nice? Meet Alves, the new brand ambassador for INC, as the Brazilian model/designer stops by Macy’s Aventura 2 p.m. Saturday to host a fashion show. We chatted before her trip:

How do you juggle all that you do?

I think just like any working mother, you have to find a balance in the middle of the chaos ... which sometimes is very hard to do! What’s helped me is having systems in place for my children and then I work around that.

How is it having three kids as opposed to two or one?

Definitely harder! As I mentioned before, systems for each child is super helpful. I had it down pat with two, but I’m starting all over with one while still maintaining the others. Also, add lack of sleep while still running after two young ones, it’s a lot, but I wouldn’t change it a bit. Every day is an adventure.

You had a tough pregnancy and C-section. How are you staying in shape?

I’m still a few weeks away from being able to do any intense workouts so Im just watching my eating habits, trying to stay away from dairy, and drinking lots and lots of water. I’ve been eating really healthy foods: lots of vegetables and protein. Though I can’t kick my chocolate craving and still allow that as a cheat.

What do you like to do while in Miami?

I look for the best Latin restaurants in town to get the fix for my rice and beans.

What do you think of the style here?

The bright colors, all the accessories, and being fearless enough to show lots of skin reminds me of Brazil, for sure!
