Veteran Hollywood actor Richard Gere has once again become a father. This time he became a father at the age of 69 after his wife Alejandra Silva gave birth to a baby boy.
According to Straits Times, this is Gere’s first child with Alejandra. He is already a father to a 19-year-old from his previous marriage to actress Carey Lowell.
Alejandra confirmed the news by sharing a picture on Instagram and captioned it as: “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.”
In the photo, the couple can be seen taking blessings from Dalai Lama.
Richard hogged the limelight earlier this year when he was countersued for trying to “steal” a project from his producing partners, Random Acts Entertainment, just days after he sued them for allegedly trying to extort him.
