Richard Gere ‘happiest man’ after marrying third wife


Richard Gere has said he is the "happiest man in the universe" after marrying his third wife Alejandra Silva.

The Pretty Woman star and Spanish activist tied the knot at Gere's ranch outside New York in April.

The ceremony was Indian-inspired, with the couple arriving together in a tuk-tuk.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, Gere, 68, said: "I'm the happiest man in the universe.

"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 Bunuel. You can't get any better than that."

The couple met when Gere stayed at a hotel owned by Ms Silva's family in Positano in Italy in 2014.

The 35-year-old, who runs a homeless charity in Spain, revealed that Gere sent her flowers until she agreed to date him and he regularly writes songs for her.

Gere was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995 and actress Carey Lowell from 2002-2016, with whom he had his 18-year-old son, Homer.

Ms Silva has a five-year old son from a previous marriage.

Gere is set to play an American media mogul in BBC drama series MotherFatherSon, which is his first television work in almost 30 years.
