Three years ago, it was revealed that 68-year-old Richard Gere was raking the zen garden of 35-year-old Spanish socialite Alejandra Silva, who Wikipedia says comes from Spanish money. Either Alejandra really wanted to lock down that silver senior, or Richard was totally smitten with someone who could explain Instagram Stories to, because Page Six says they got married.
Page Six’s source says they got married a few months ago, but Hola! claims they got married in a civil ceremony at the beginning of April. Hola! also says that they plan on having another ceremony in New York on May 6th. This is Richard’s third marriage (he was previously married to Cindy Crawford and Carey Lowell, who he shares an 18-year-old son Homer with), and this would be Alejandra’s second marriage. And here’s where it might get a teeny tiny bit messy.
Alejandra was still technically married to her first husband Govind Friedland when she started dating Richard in 2014. Alejandra and Govind were married in 2012 and had a kid together the same year. They also reportedly ran a boutique hotel, which was where she met Richard. Ooooh, drama.
But the big question remains: how did Richard propose to Alejandra? Obviously I want to believe he presented her with a diamond in a blue velvet box that he snapped shut on her hand. Although it might not have been intentional. The lids on those gosh-darn jewellery boxes can be just so difficult to maneuver with arthritic hands.
