The couple hasn't publicly commented on the pregnancy yet, but it's no surprise — last year, they took a month before they confirmed they were expecting by posting a photo of Silva showing her growing bump to the Dalai Lama with Gere by her side. She captioned the photo, “A very special moment just a few minutes ago... Getting blessings for our precious to come.. we couldn't say it before telling HH Dalai Lama.”
Richard and Alejandra secretly tied the knot in April last year. In February, Richard gushed to Hello magazine, “I'm the happiest man in the universe. How could I not be? I'm married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who's fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who's a great cook — and who makes the best salads in the world!"
Alejandra had similar things to say about Richard, sharing, “He is the most humble, sensitive, affectionate, attentive, funny, generous man that I've ever met. What can I say? I'm so in love! How would you feel if each morning you were asked: 'What would make you happy today?' Not a day goes by that he doesn't mention how important I am to him. I feel very lucky."
Richard and Alejandra have been together since 2014. A few years ago, she told Hola!, "Our karma was attracted the moment we saw each other. I'm not ignoring our age difference and what it means to be with a Hollywood star, but when there's such a strong karmic energy, the problems disappear.”
Gere is also the father of Homer James Jigme, 19, with ex-wife Carey Lowell.
