One of Hollywood’s most iconic gentlemen has made a huge announcement, and it’s nothing like anyone was expecting to hear.
The near 70-year-old “Pretty Woman” sensation, Richard Gere, made a massive announcement that he was going to be a father - again!
He and new wife, Spanish publicist Alejandra Silva, tied the knot in early April after a four-year romance. When asked about his bride, the beaming groom told sources, “I have found the quiet and happy life that I have always sought.”
At their intimate wedding ceremony, he also said: “I am the happiest man in the universe, how could I not be?” In images captured of the beautiful couple, his feelings are certainly evident.
The 35-year-old actress shared similar feelings about him: “I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life. It was feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path.”
While the details of their relationship have been private, they knew it was time to come forward and tell the world the joy that will be coming to their lives in a few short months.
Gere already shares one child with Carey Lowell, 18-year-old Homer James Jigme Gere, and Silva also has one child, five-year-old Alberto Friedland.
While this news came as a shock to many, it was all in the plan for the newlyweds. From the moment they fell in love, they knew they wanted to waste no time in starting a family together.
To them, age is but a number and they know they have found the one in which their heart has always longed.
We cannot wait to see the little one when he/she arrives. Congratulations to the happy couple!
