Hollywood actor Richard Gere is expecting his first child with second wife Alejandra Silva

Hollywood actor Richard Gere is expecting his first child with second wife Alejandra Silva

Richard Gere is reportedly expecting a child with his 35-year-old wife Alejandra Silva, at the age of 69.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter a year ago, Gere commented on his removed presence in Tinseltown, theorizing that the Chinese market isn't interested in seeing him on screen, and he's therefore lost roles. The "Pretty Woman" star exchanged vows with Silva after four years together at a civil ceremony in Spain in April before celebrating the occasion with friends and family at his home near NY.

Richard and Alejandra first had a civil ceremony in her native Spain in April then celebrated with a second wedding for family and friends a few weeks later on Cinco de Mayo at the actor's estate in Pound Ridge, New York.

The pair both have children of their own. He and ex-wife Carey Lowell share an 18-year-old son together.

Alejandra, who met her current husband while divorcing her first husband Govind Friedland, the son of mining magnate Robert Friedland, has a five-year-old son called Alberto she calls Albertino. She is the daughter of the former vice-president of the Real Madrid Football Club.

'I felt like someone was stretching out his hand and showing me the true path'.

Silva is Gere's third wife.

Their relationship first became public in June 2015.

Spanish newspaper ABC was first to report the news.

That's where things get a little murky because we reached out to Gere's publicist, who said he has "no knowledge at this time" of and "therefore no comment".
