A few days ago, the media reported that 69-year-old Richard Gere became a father for the second time . A 35-year-old businesswoman Alejandra Silva gave him a son, with whom the actor has been married since last year, and is dating from 2015. The journalists did not immediately recognize the name of the newborn – only the baby’s gender and place of birth were known. But now the Spanish edition of HOLA! reports which name the pair has chosen.

It turns out that the boy was decided to call Alexander, or Alejandro – in the Spanish manner. Gere decided to name his second son in honor of his beloved wife, which the actor’s fans considered very nice, especially the variations of this name are suitable for both the boy and the girl.

Recall that Gere and Silva met in 2015, after which they began to meet. The first time they were caught by the paparazzi, and Richard himself did not give any comments on the new novel. Alejandra went through a divorce with Govind Friedland and was sure that she would never bond the marriage again, but in 2018 she and Gere got married after all, arranging a wedding on their ranch near New York. Both spouses already have children from previous relationships, so baby Alejandro has become the second for both Richard and Alejandra.
