Richard Gere and his wife Alejandra Silva have finally confirmed that they’re expecting their first child together.
The 69-year-old actor and the 35-year-old Spanish publicist wed back in April, and now they’re set to welcome a baby into the world.
Alejandra confirmed the news by posting a photo of the pair with the Dalai Lama, who is blessing her baby bump in the picture.
She wrote: “A very special moment just a few minutes ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come.”
