Camila Alves, the longtime girlfriend of American actor Matthew McConaughey, told

that in keeping with a Brazilian tradition, she’s not putting out for 40 days after giving birth to the couple’s daughter.

“Where I come from (Brazil), we believe in something we call a 40-day break after the baby,” she told the website.

“You have to let your body do its own thing. You give it time to recover and let everything settle down. In a way, it is nice. There is not so much pressure. You kind of respect all the hard work your body has just done and give it a break. For these 40 days, you really take it easy.”

So what exactly constitutes “easy”?

“By that I mean no sex, light, healthy food, no trips to the gym. Then, after 40 days, you are good to go. I confess, I am getting a little anxious to workout. I miss it. Not just to get my body back in shape, but for me, for my head!” the host of the upcoming season of Shear Genius told StyleList.
