Richard Gere, 68, to become a father again


Richard Gere is preparing to tackle a surprising role at 68: father.

The "Pretty Woman" actor and his new wife, Spanish activist Alejandra Silva, 35, are expecting a baby.

It will be the second child for both parents. Gere has an 18-year-old son with his second wife, actress Carey Lowell; Silva has a 5-year-boy from her first marriage, which ended in divorce in 2015.

The couple, who met four years ago in Italy at a boutique hotel owned by Silva's family, got married this spring—twice. They said "I do" at a civil ceremony in her native Spain in April and then did it all over again for family and friends at Gere's estate in Pound Ridge, New York, just outside New York City.
