SEPTEMBER 23, 2018
Actor Richard Gere is going to be a dad again – at the age of 69. The ’80s heartthrob and his 35-year-old wife choose to reveal their pregnancy in a very special way.
Alejandra Silva posted a photo of the couple with the Dalai Lama, who is gently placing his hand on her baby bump. She wrote,”Getting blessings for our precious to come. We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama.”
Richard and publicist Alejandra married in April. The Pretty Woman star has previously been married twice – to supermodel Cindy Crawford and actress Carey Lowell, the mother of his 18-year-old son, Homer. Alejandra has a five-year-old son from a previous relationship.
