USA Today article, new daughter expected soon

  • In an interview with USA Today's Donna Freydkin, Matt talks about preparing for the birth of his second child, re-shoots for Green Zone in September, and his involvement with OneXOne - excerpts:

    For Matt Damon, this summer has been one of gains and losses.

    He's preparing for the birth of his second daughter, helping launch a charity and hoping for some major reductions around his waistline.

    Speaking from his Miami home, Damon says that, except for the Green Zone reshoots, he's "taking the rest of the year off, and I'm just hanging out with my family."

    Wife Luciana is "due soon," and the baby will join Isabella, 2, and Damon's stepdaughter, Alexia, 9. "I'm so outnumbered down here, it's crazy," jokes Damon of his girl-powered household.

    The couple haven't yet picked out a name. "We decided to wait till she's born, and then we're going to get a look at her and we'll probably keep debating it," he says.
