James Donald McConaughey and his wife, Mary Kathlene McCabe, had found it difficult to conceive after the birth of their first son Rooster, who was born on August 2, 1954. Further medical diagnosis revealed that James had a low sperm count, and the couple decided to adopt a second baby amidst constant requests from Rooster for a baby brother.

Pat had spent five blissful years with the McConaugheys and had just turned 7 when Matthew, who was so named because his mother considered him a gift from God, was born on November 4, 1969. This was despite his father’s medical condition. While assuming that Pat must have gotten the best form of education from his family, the records of his time in school have not been made available to the public at this time.

What is Pat McConaughey’s Net Worth?

Pat McConaughey’s net worth is currently unknown. Given that he entered the public’s consciousness due to his family affiliation to Hollywood superstar Matthew McConaughey, details of how Pat takes care of his daily expenses have not been revealed. Also, he comes from a rather well-to-do family effectively overshadows his career pursuits.

Pat prefers to keep a low profile and rarely makes public media appearances compared to his more outgoing brothers. His decision to stay out of the limelight probably arises from the fact that he is a more reserved personality when compared to his father or brothers. But how does Pat McConaughey’s net worth compare to that of his brothers?

His Brother, Matthew McConaughey, is Worth a Whooping $140 Million

In contrast to Pat’s professional inclinations, his baby brother, Matthew, is a well-respected and celebrated actor. In fact, he is one of the more prominent names in Hollywood. Matthew got his first movie role in the 1993 comedy, Dazed and Confused. He had since stated that how he interpreted the actions of his character, Wooderson, in the movie was inspired by Pat’s demeanor during an incident when he was 10 years old.

He would go on to become a household name when he appeared as attorney Jake Brigance in the 1996 legal drama, A Time To Kill. More movie roles were handed to the actor, who quickly established a healthy reputation for being one of the best in the movie industry.

Before the end of the decade that began in 2000, Matthew McConaughey made more appearances in movies, including several romantic comedies such as The Wedding Planner (2001), How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days (2003), Launch Failure (2006), and Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past (2009). Acting in romantic comedies is something that Matthew’s agent was not really in support of, and after acting in those kinds of movies for a while, Matthew inevitably grew bored.

However, even though his career was not entirely defined by the ten years from 2000, it was arguably his most successful period in the movie industry. It’s no secret that Matthew McConaughey can command up to $20 million for a single movie role. He remains a Hollywood living legend who has picked up many awards while also racked up a sizable net worth of $140 million.

Their Eldest Brother, Rooster McConaughey, Has a Net Worth of $55 Million

Rooster McConaughey, Pat’s older brother, has also done well for himself financially. His net worth of $65 million is considerably lower than that of his superstar brother but still quite impressive by economic standards. He is the one who effectively took over their father’s business interests and made his money from selling oil produce.

There was a brief stint on television that included appearances on Black Gold, Good Morning America, and West Texas Investors Club. Sources reveal that Rooster turned down a lucrative offer that would have seen him appear in a movie in 2008. His company, DGM Supply, focuses on the sale of oil field equipment and is based in Midland, Texas. Rooster also invests in landed properties and farm production.

Pat McConaughey Is Likely Married

Given that he comes from a family that places a premium on family values and togetherness, and also the fact that he takes family responsibilities seriously, it will not be a long shot to say that Pat McConaughey is married. However, the identity of this wife is not exactly known. There are also unverified reports about a daughter, but neither the 60-year-old nor any member of his family has come out to confirm that.

While the details of his marital status is unclear, Pat’s brothers are happily married to wives and children of their own. Between Rooster and Matthew, Pat has six nephews and nieces, namely, Levi Alves, Livingston Alves, Miller Lyte, Madison Beaumont, Miller Lyte, Vida Alves, and Margarita Olympia.

The decision to keep the identity of his wife or any children away from the media is one that Pat possibly made to keep a semblance of normalcy in his life instead of the high-profile nature of his brothers’ families. Pat McConaughey enjoys playing golf as a means to relax and unwind. His brothers and other family members have made him out as someone who doesn’t joke with family values and as someone who is fiercely loyal.
