Veteran actor Richard Gere has once again become a father at the age of 69 after his wife Alejandra Silva gave birth to a boy.
The baby comes less than a year after Richard and Alejandra tied the knot at his home in Pound Ridge, New York.
This is the first child for the couple but they both have children from previous relationships.
Alejandra confirmed her pregnancy in September after she and Richard had shared the news with the Dalai Lama, to honour Richard's spiritual beliefs - the actor is a practicing Tibetan Buddhist. "We couldn't announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama". Reportedly, a representative of the 69-year-old Hollywood actor confirmed the news to CNN as well as the gender of the baby is a boy.
Silva also has a child, a son named Albert, from her marriage to Govind Friedland, a geologist.
In December, Alejandra showed her excitement over the baby's arrival, posting on Instagram, "I'm so happy!" "I'm married to a attractive woman who is smart, sensitive, (and) committed to helping people, who's fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who's a great cook - and who makes the best salads in the world!"
The couple began dating in 2014.
