THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM
Richard Gere is gearing up to marry his own Pretty Woman, with his wedding to 35-year-old Spanish girlfriend Alejandra Silva expected in May.
The couple, who have been dating for three years, are believed to have bonded over their passion for human rights with Richard (68) saying the pair’s “karma was attracted” when they saw each other.
Alejandra has equal high praise for her husband-to-be. “Richard has been my hero in real life. I was a little lost, without light, and meeting him gave sense to my life.”
This will be Richard’s third marriage after his unions with Cindy Crawford (52), from 1991 to 1995, and Carey Lowell (57) – who is the mother of his son Homer (17) – from 2002 until 2016. Alejandra is mother of Albert (5), who she shares with ex-husband Govind Friedland.
