According to Spain's Hola! magazine, the pair welcomed a son in NY "a few days ago", with further details about the tot's name and birth weight yet to be revealed.

The couple married at Gere's estate in Pound Ridge, New York - with several Tibetan monks in attendance (Gere is Buddhist and one of son Homer's middle names, Jigme, is a Tibetan name).

Richard Gere and wife Alejandra Silva have welcomed their first child together, Fox News can confirm.

There has been no public comment from the couple to the news of the birth of their first child.

In September, Silva posted a photo of herself with Gere visiting the Dalai Lama.


Gere and Silva married a year ago after dating since 2015, shortly after she finalized her divorce.

Although she is very discreet when it comes to her and her husband's private lives, the Hollywood actor's wife couldn't help but share the joy of her pregnancy news, telling her followers, "I am so happy!". Silva has a 6-year-old son named Albert from a previous marriage.

Gere also was married to supermodel Cindy Crawford, from 1991 to 1995.

"Speaking to Hello! at the time of his secret marriage to Silva, Gere said that he was ". the happiest man in the universe". "I'm married to a lovely woman who is smart, sensitive, (and) 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!"
