Matthew McConaughey has two older brothers. Rooster McConaughey is the oldest one, while Pat McConaughey is the second oldest and the one that was adopted into the McConaughey family.

According to Buzz Out Africa, Pat joined the McConaughey household when he was 2 years old. The identities of his birth parents are not known to the public, but his adoptive parents are James Donald McConaughey and Mary Kathlene MaCabe. James was an owner of a gas station and ran an oil enterprise. Mary, on the other hand, was a writer and a kindergarten teacher.

James and Kathlene reportedly had a hard time conceiving a child after the birth of their first son, Rooster, who was born on August 2, 1954. Online reports claimed that James had a low sperm count, which prevented the couple from having a child. Amidst constant requests from Rooster for a younger brother, James and Kathlene decided to adopt a baby, who happened to be Pat.

Pat was born in 1962 in Houston, Texas. His exact birthday is unknown, but he is 60 or 61 years old as of 2023. On November 4, 1969, Matthew was born. Pat was 7 at that time. Given James’ medical condition, Matthew’s arrival to the world was an unexpected blessing. That explains his name, Matthew, which means “gift of God” in Hebrew.
