Richard Gere has been in the spotlight for over 50 years. After making his debut in the 1974 film The Lords of Flatbush, the 72-year-old actor quickly rose to fame in a variety of popular movies, like An Officer And A Gentleman, Pretty Woman, and Chicago. Richard has long been celebrated for his acting skills, and he’s even earned a Primetime Emmy nomination in 1994 for his performance in And The Band Played On.
Throughout his career, Richard has been involved in a number of high-profile relationships. He married his first wife Cindy Crawford in 1991. The pair split up in 1995, but he married his second wife Carey Lowell in 2002, but the pair ended up splitting up in 2013. Richard got married for the third time in 2018 to Alejandra Silva. From his marriages to Carey and Alejandra, Richard has three kids. Find out all about them here!
Homer James Jigme
Before Richard and Carey wed in 2002, the couple welcomed their only son together Homer James Jigme, 22, in 2000. Despite being the actor’s oldest, Homer has kept a pretty low profile. Shortly after his son was born, the Pretty Woman star gushed about his then-very young son in a 2002 profile with The Guardian. “[Homer is] the joy of my life. Loves music, very fast runner, very smart. Very funny. Pretty quick he learned irony, which is a wonderful quality for any human being,” he said.
After Richard and Carey broke up in 2013, the pair entered a legal battle over custody of their son, via Observer. The pair finalized their divorce and seemed to have come to an agreement in October 2016, per Page Six. Now that he’s all grown up, Homer is clearly a smart young man, because he’s a student at Brown University, according to his LinkedIn profile.
After Richard and Carey settled their divorce, he wed Alejandra in 2018. The pair welcomed their first son Alexander, 3, in 2019! While the actor has kept much of his family private, he is clearly a natural father! He spoke about how his life changed after his first son was born in a 2002 interview with The Guardian. “The marginal stuff just doesn’t affect you any more when you weigh it against the real things in your life. All the cliches [about parenthood] are true,” he said at the time. Despite mostly keeping their kids out of the spotlight, Alejandra did share an adorable photo of her son in a pumpkin patch to her Instagram in October 2020.
Second Son With Alejandra
Richard became a father for the third time in April 2020, when Alejandra gave birth to another baby boy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. While there’s not much known about the now-2-year-old son, the pair are clearly happy parents! Besides the two boys with Richard, Alejandra also has an older son Albert from a previous marriage.
