Alejandra Silva is the leading woman in Richard Gere‘s life and she’s fully aware of the 33-year age gap between them. After the pair got married in 2018, they welcomed son Alexander Gere in 2019 and his newest child with the Spanish publicist in April 2020.
When they first met in 2014, the Primal Fear star sent his lover flowers until she agreed to go on a date with him. Now, years later, Alejandra says she doesn’t regret getting to know the actor. “He is the most humble, sensitive, affectionate, attentive, funny, generous man that I’ve ever met,” she gushed to Hola! in a previous interview. “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.”
Alejandra revealed she was pregnant with Richard’s first child when she shared a photo of her husband and the Dalai Lama placing their hands on her baby bump. “A very special moment just a few minutes ago … Getting blessings for our precious to come,” she captioned the pic. “We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama.”
Once Alexander was born, Alejandra felt grateful for all of the blessings in her life. “I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life,” the brunette beauty said about Richard to Hola!. “It was feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path.”
Before Richard was married to Alejandra, he was wed to Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995 and actress Carey Lowell from 2002 to 2016. In a 2016 interview with the Huffington Post, Cindy credited their separation to her being young at the time. After all, she was 26 years old when she tied the knot with Richard who was 42.
“I didn’t think I was young, though, but I was young,” she explained about their wedding day. “I think part of the problem in our relationship was that we were a lot of other things but I don’t know if we were ever friends — like peers, because I was young, and he was Richard Gere.”
Fortunately, the age difference doesn’t seem to bother Alejandra at all.
