How old is Alejandra Silva?
Richard's stunning wife is 35 years old, and he is 68 years old. "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," Alejandra told Hola! in 2015. She and Richard started dating in 2014, but she revealed they had known each other for years before that. "Our karma was attracted the moment we saw each other," Alejandra explained.
What is Alejandra Silva's job?
Alejandra runs Rais Fundacion, a non-profit hoping to end homelessness in Spain — her home country — within the next five years. "I've slept on the street to understand the struggle of the homeless," she told Hola!. "I'm not scared of rolling up my sleeves and diving into work. If I do something, I put 100 percent effort in. If I can't, I'd rather not do it." Her other full-time job is being a mom to a five-year-old son named Albert, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Govin Friedland. Alejandra and Govin, the son of an American billionaire, divorced in 2014.
What is Alejandra Silva's net worth?
It seems like the Internet hasn't yet done the math on Alejandra's net worth, but we can assume there are a lot of zeroes involved! Her father, Ignacio Silva Botas, is a successful businessman who served as Vice President of Spanish soccer club Real Madrid from 1995 to 2000. Meanwhile, Richard has a $100 million net worth, according to WiseToast, so we assume he'll be donating a lot to his new wife's foundation!
