The ladies in Matthew McConaughey's life couldn't be prouder of the multi-hyphenate star. And honestly, who can blame them?

Today, the actor's wife Camila celebrated the release of his highly anticipated memoir by sharing a photo of him and his proud mama on Instagram.

The candid photo (below) shows family matriarch Kay sitting on Matthew's lap while displaying a hardcover copy of his new book, Greenlights.

"One proud mamma! #Greenlights book out TODAY!!!!" Camila wrote alongside the sweet snap. "Words cannot express how proud I am of this work of love that Matthew did!!"

Greenlights ($14.99; Amazon.com) is described as a "unconventional memoir" filled with wisdom and life lessons learned the hard way. Or as Matthew puts it, "It's a love letter. To life."

"Laugh out loud, to tears, to wisdom, to the bumper stickers it is a journey you just have to read!!!" Camila added on Instagram. "Turn your red lights into greenlights!! Go get it at www.greenlights.com or anywhere books are sold!!!"

In an interview with People, the Academy Award-winner revealed he wrote Greenlights while sequestered alone in the desert after his wife encouraged him to turn his diary into something more.

"I went away to the desert by myself for 52 days, no electricity," Matthew, 50, said of his writing process. "I've been keeping a diary for 36 years; a couple of years ago, my wife gave me a kick in the backside to say: 'You've been talking about sitting down with those for 36 years and seeing what it is for a while. Now's the time. Get out of here."

Now this is going to be epic!
