Congratulations to actor Richard Gere and his wife, Alejandra Silva — the couple are expecting their first child together!
Alejandra shared the baby news on Instagram with an announcement like no other.
She captioned a photo of herself and Richard with the Dalai Lama placing a hand on her baby bump: “A very special moment just a few minutes ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come.”
She added: “We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama.”
Richard and Alejandra started dating in 2014 and were married in April 2018. A source told People at the time they tied the knot: “They’re so comfortable with each other, have fun together, and are looking forward to their future together.”
Alejandra has a 5-year-old son, Albert, with her ex-husband, while Richard shares 18-year-old son Homer with ex-wife Carey Lowell.

Baby Names Tip: Don't give your child a nickname (i.e. "Jimmy") as a given name on their birth certificate. Let them have the flexibility to choose. Remember, you're not just naming a baby, you're also naming an adult!
