Richard Gere, 73, and wife Alejandra, 39, share adorable photo of their 3-year-old son Alexander
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva had their first child, Alexander in 2019
POUND RIDGE, NEW YORK: Richard Gere's third wife, Alejandra Silva, won over fans on Thursday, November 17, when she posted a sweet photo of her 3-year-old son Alexander on Instagram.
The 73-year-old 'Pretty Woman' actor and the gorgeous 39-year-old Spanish publicist seemed like they were jumping with joy in the background, with their shadows reflecting on the asphalt next to the adorable little boy. Little Alexander is seen sticking out his arms to make his tiny shadow grow bigger. Silva captioned the adorable picture, "Daddy, mommy, and Alexander," along with a single red heart emoji.
The 3-year-old looked cute as he wore a beige sweater and pants, while his feet wore a pair of neon green boots. His full, chestnut hair had adorable swirls and curls. The family appeared to be playing with a Frisbee at the couple's new 35-acre estate in New York, which they bought this February for $10 million.
The two had secretly wed in 2018 in an intimate ceremony after three years of dating. Silva announced the happy news in an Instagram post, "Today is the day I married the most wonderful man I have ever met, I know it sounds cliché but it’s true!! Comes from my heart, I’m so proud to be with you, to share this life with you, to be the mother of our children, to be your friend, to be your Wife! You make me sooo happy! You are the love of my life."
"I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life," Silva told Hola magazine in 2018 of their romance. "It was feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path." She continued, "It had to be that way in this lifetime. He has promised me at least 20 good years! But I have to confess that he has much more energy than me, is much more active. It’s hard to keep up with him. He’s not human!"
The couple had their first child together, Alexander, after a year of marriage. They share another son, who was born in April 2020. Richard is also dad to a 22-year-old son Homer, whom he shares with ex-wife Carey Lowell, while Alejandra has a son named Albert, 9, from a previous marriage.
