According to a representative of the 69-year-old award-winning actor, Gere and his wife, Alejandra Silva, 35, have welcomed a baby boy. Further details about the new baby were not given – including the date of birth as well as the name.
The baby boy is the first child that the couple shared, but each of them has children from previous marriages and relationships. Gere has a 19-year-old son from his marriage to Carey Lowell, and Silva has a son with her last husband, Govind Friedland.
Shortly after Silva finalized her divorce last year, Gere and her married each other in the same year after dating for three years.
Silva is originally from Spain, and she is the daughter Ignacio Silva, the former vice president of the Real Madrid Football Club.
Known for being a devout Buddhist and a long-time friend of Tebet’s exiled spiritual leader, Dalai Lama, Richard Gere visited Tibet with Silva. In September, Silva posted a photo of this visit on her Instagram.
Silva has also been documenting her pregnancy on social media, showing the progress and growth of her baby.
