Los Angeles: Matthew McConaughey`s actress wife Camila Alves was worried that her pregnancy would put an end to her career.

The 29-year-old Brazilian beauty signed on as the face of Macy`s INC International Concepts` campaign in April, and discovered shortly thereafter she was expecting her second child with McConaughey, reported People magazine.

"A week before we were supposed to have a photo shoot, I found out I was pregnant! I was over the moon, but my first reaction was that it was going to be a deal-breaker for the campaign, that they wouldn`t want a pregnant mom ? but we worked it out," she said.

The actress-model raises two kids with the actor, who will portray an AIDS patient in his upcoming film "The Dallas Buyer`s Club".

"He`s losing weight for his new movie and he still has to lose more. But I`m very supportive. I`m usually the one right there saying, `You can`t eat this, you can`t eat that`, but he`s very disciplined. He`s really great at it," she added.
