“Pretty Woman” star Richard Gere and his wife, Alejandra Gere, have welcomed their first child together — a baby boy!
The newlyweds welcomed their son, whose name is unknown, in New York City several days ago. A rep for the 69-year-old actor confirmed the news to TODAY.
It’s the second child for both mom and dad. Richard shares a 19-year-old son, Homer, with ex-wife Carey Lowell, while Alejandra shares a son, Albert, 6, with her ex-husband, businessman Govind Friedland.
Richard and Alejandra (formerly Silva) tied the knot in April 2018 after several years of dating. The couple revealed they were expecting last September when Alejandra shared a photo of the Dalai Lama blessing her baby bump.
“Just a few moments ago … Getting blessings for our precious to come … We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama,” she captioned the since-deleted pic.
In December, the mom-to-be shared another photo of her baby bump, gushing, “I’m so happy.”
Richard reportedly wooed his future bride by repeatedly sending her flowers until she agreed to a date.
“I’m the happiest man in the universe. How could I not be?” the actor gushed to Hola! magazine last year shortly after the two said “I do.”
“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!” he added.
Congratulations, Richard and Alejandra, on your sweet new baby boy!
