Congrats: Richard Gere welcomes second child with wife Alejandra Silva

Hollywood legend Richard Gere has become a father for the second time.

According to Spanish magazine Hola!, the actor, who is seven months shy of his 70th birthday, has welcomed a son with his wife Alejandra Silva.

The couple met in 2014 at a luxury Italian boutique hotel Alejandra was managing at the time.

The baby is Richard's second child - he also has an 18-year-old son Homer with his former wife Carey Lowell while Alejandra has a six-year-old son Albert with her former husband Govind Freidland.

Alejandra announced her pregnancy in September 2018 on Instagram, six months after she and Richard married.

She posted a picture of the Dalai Lama touching her belly in a blessing. 

She captioned it, ''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 #dalailama #richardgere #alejandragere #love."

Richard opened up to the Sunday Times magazine about falling in love with Alejandra.

He said, ''Instant from my side. I instantly became happy just looking at her. It was one of those powerful things.''

Huge congratulations to the pair on their bundle of joy.
