Congratulations are in order for Richard Gere and his wife Alejandra Silva, who just welcomed their first child together. The couple became the proud parents of a beautiful baby boy.
Gere’s rep confirmed he welcomed a son with Silva a few days ago in New York City. She shared the news about her pregnancy back in September, by posting a photo of her new baby bump receiving a blessing by none other than Dalai Lama.
The Pretty Woman star and his wife first sparked romance rumors back in 2015, and they’ve been going strong ever since. Silva is a professional publicist, and she met Gere thanks to her interest in non-profit organizations.
The couple tied the knot in April last year, but it wasn’t their first time walking down the aisle. Richard Gere was married to supermodel Cindy Crawford between 1991 and 1995, and welcomed his first child – son Homer – with his second wife Carey Lowell. Alejandra Silva also has a son named Albert from her marriage to Govind Friedland.
