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.

    Thanks for the updates

    It's great that Matt can be home to take care of Lucy and welcome their new baby. Thanks so much for the updates. Take care, Cheryl

    Having another girl

    It's lovely news that they are having another daughter; I'm not worried about the naming of her, they are a down to earth couple and will choose something lovely and practical as they did with Isabella.

    I read some research a while ago that came to the conclusion that alpha males tend to have daughters and beta males tend to have sons. Of course that is a big generalisation and lots of other factors come into play, but I'm not surprised. Marcia

    Best wishes to the whole family as they anticipate the blessed arrival of ... (insert name here):) Girls, girls, girls at the Damon house.

    Matt says he's losing weight by boxing. Hmmm... Matt boxing - nice thought. It's such a butch sport. Maybe it's a good counterweight to all the estrogen at home? ;)
