America’s all-time favorite actor Richard Gere is making headlines after a piece of happy news has come out in public. The 70-year-old, married to the love of his life, Alejandra Silva, is busy expanding his family. The latest updates say that the couple will soon be welcoming the fourth member of their family.
According to People, the Pretty Woman actor will welcome his second child with Silvia “next spring”. The news was first reported by Spanish Magazine, Hola. However, the very private couple has not confirmed any details. The magazine said that the Silvia was three months into pregnancy.
This news comes just nine months after they welcomed their first son, Alexander in February 2019. The announcement regarding the news of their first pregnancy was also posted on Instagram. A photo of the couple seeking blessings from Dalai Lama was posted along with a caption. “A very special moment just a few minutes ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come.. we couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama,” wrote the 35-year-old Spanish publicist and activist. Dressed in a black long sleeve dress, Silvia also shared a selfie showing off her baby bump. She posted the picture on Instagram and wrote, “Soy muy feliz! ❤️ … I’m so happy! #happygirl.”
Though the couple has a 35-year age gap, Gere admitted during the birth of their first son that he was not afraid to be an older father, adding that he looked forward to being a hands on dad. While it is their second child as a couple, both Gere and Silvia have children from their past relationships. The Hollywood star has a 19-year-old son Homer James Jigme with his ex-wife Carey Lowell while Silva has a 6½-year-old son Albert from her previous marriage with Govind Friedland.
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva got married on April 23, 2018, in a civil ceremony after dating for four years. “They’re so comfortable with each other, have fun together and are looking forward to their future together,” said a source close to the couple in April 2018. The two have gushed about each other on several occasions. “I’m the happiest man in the universe. How could I not be? I’m married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who’s fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who’s a great cook – and who makes the best salads in the world!” said the star about his wife.
