Richard Gere and wife Alejandra Silva are readying for diaper duty.
On Sunday, Silva, 35, confirmed she and Gere, 69, are expecting their first child together, sharing a snap of the Dalai Lama putting his hand on her growing baby bump.
“Just a few moments ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come..” she posted on Instagram. “We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama☺️.”
Gere, a practicing Buddhist, secretly wed Silva in a civil ceremony in April.
Rumblings of a potential pregnancy first emerged in August, though both Gere and Silva have children from previous relationships. The “Pretty Woman” actor and second wife Carey Lowell are parents to 18-year-old son Homer, while Silva and ex-husband Govind Friedland welcomed son Albert in December 2012.
Prior to Silva, Gere was married to Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995. He wed Lowell in 2002, before separating in 2013. Their divorce was finalized in 2016.
