Richard Gere is not afraid to show he’s on cloud nine af­ter mar­ry­ing Ale­jan­dra Silva (35). The cou­ple, who met in 2014 when Richard (68) stayed at her fam­ily’s ho­tel in Posi­tano, wed in an In­di­an­in­spired cer­e­mony in New York.

“I’m the hap­pi­est man in the uni­verse,” says Richard. “How could I not be? I’m mar­ried to a beau­ti­ful woman who is smart, sen­si­tive, 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!

“Ale­jan­dra med­i­tates, she’s a vege­tar­ian, a great mother, has the touch of an an­gel... and she’s also Span­ish: the land of kings and queens, of Cer­vantes and Buñuel... You can’t get any bet­ter than that!”

Ale­jan­dra, who shares a son Al­bert (5) with her ex-hus­band, ge­ol­o­gist Govind Fried­land, has re­vealed that the Pret­tyWo­man star wooed her with flow­ers un­til she agreed to go out with him. And it’s clear she made the right de­ci­sion.

“I feel like the luck­i­est woman in the world,” she gushes. “He is the most hum­ble, sen­si­tive, af­fec­tion­ate, at­ten­tive, funny, gen­er­ous man that I’ve ever met. What can I say? I’m so in love!”

The be­sot­ted cou­ple aren’t afraid of hold­ing back when it comes to declar­ing their love.
