Richard Gere, 70, and Alejandra Silva, 37, have welcomed their second child together.

Reports that Richard and Alejandra were expecting their second child first surfaced in November, but the  immensely-private couple never officially confirmed the news. 

The couple married in April 2018, and announced they were expecting their first child together in August that year. 

Alejandra and Richard, who met in 2014 at a luxury Italian boutique hotel Alejandra bought with her former husband, welcomed son Alexander in February 2019. 

Ahead of the birth, Richard said he was ‘not all at’ worried about becoming an older parent, and wanted to be a ‘hands-on dad.’

The couple announced they were expecting their first child in a very unique way. 

Alejandra shared a photo of herself and husband meeting the Dalai Lama – who put his hand on her bump to bless the unborn child. 

Richard is a long-term friend of the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader.

A Buddhist himself, Richard is a prominent advocate for human rights in Tibet – something he says led to him being blacklisted in Hollywood. 

His support for the state also led to him being banned from entering China.

The pair also have children from their previous relationships. 

Richard shares son Homer, 20, with ex-wife Carey Lowell, who he divorced in 2016 after 14 years of marriage.

Prior to his, he was married to first wife Cindy Crawford for four years between 1991 and 1995. 

Meanwhile, Alejandra has a seven-year-old son called Albert with her ex-husband Govind Friedland, who she was married to for three years until 2015.

Alejandra, who is the daughter of a former Real Madrid vice-president, has admitted in the past to being ‘a little lost’ when she met Richard and has described him as ‘my hero in real life.’ 

Meanwhile, Richard told Hola! magazine that he was ‘the happiest man in the universe’ after marrying Alejandra. 

He gushed: ‘I’m the happiest man in the universe and how couldn’t I be! I’m married to a beautiful, sensitive, funny woman who’s committed to helping people and is a great mother.’
