Richard Gere and wife Alejandra welcome first child together. Congratulations are in order as Hollywood actor Richard Gere and wife Alejandra Silva have welcomed their first child together.
According to Spanish magazine, HOLA!, the couple have welcomed a baby boy, who was born a few days ago in New York.
Richard is already father to Homer James Jigme, 18, who he shares with ex-wife Carey Lowell and Alejandra has six-year-old son Albert with ex-husband Govind Friedland.
The pair confirmed they were expecting last September and, although they like to keep their private life out of the spotlight, Alejandra couldn’t resist sharing a few snaps during her pregnancy.
Taking to her Instagram in December the Spanish publicist showed off her baby bump with the caption: “I’m so happy! #happygirl.”
Richard and Alejandra tied the knot in April last year at the actor’s ranch outside New York.
Talking about their big day to HELLO!, the bride said: “I feel like I’m in a true fairytale. Without a doubt, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world.”
While the Pretty Woman actor added: “”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!”
He continued to gush over his new bride, saying: “Alejandra meditates, she’s a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel… and she’s also Spanish: the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Buñuel… You can’t get any better than that.”
The couple met in Positano in 2014 when Richard stayed at Alejandra’s family-owned hotel.
Speaking about how they first met, Alejandra said: “A friend introduced us, we looked at each other and felt a very strong connection. We couldn’t stop looking at each other all night, and since then we haven’t been apart.”
