Richrd Gere has secretly gotten married to his 35-year-old girlfriend Alejandra Silva, and he managed to do it away from the limelight and the paparazzi circa early April. According to Spain's Hello! Magazine, the 68-year-old silver fox got hitched for the third time in a secret civil ceremony and the happy couple are planning to celebrate the happy occasion with their loved ones in New York at a May 6 party. 

The 'Pretty Woman' actor had been dating his young wife for three years and according to him, he finally found the "quiet and happy life" for which he had always yearned. 

Alejandra also revealed to the magazine that they are looking to start a family soon.  

Richard, who was married to Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995 and Carey Lowell from 2002 to 2016, was first rumored to have been engaged to Alejandra in December. She was spotted with an unforgettably large diamond on her ring finger and we knew the deal was sealed.

Alejandra, too, has been married before, and in fact, it was in the middle of her divorce from Govind Friedland, the son of American mining magnate Robert Friedland, that she had met her current husband – as an adult. Interestingly, Richard had met his wife as a young girl, when he had borrowed a boat from her businessman father, Ignacio Silva.  

"Richard has known my family for 15 years. When I saw him again in Positano, I reminded him of the story," Alejandra spoke about their reconnection in 2014 in Positasno, Italy, where she was running a luxury hotel.  

The couple had made their relationship status official when Alejandra appeared as his date at the premiere of his film 'Time Out of Mind' in 2015.
