Actor Richard Gere and his wife Alejandra Gere are pregnant with their first baby together and couldn’t be more excited! But that’s not all! The couple even got the blessing of none other than the Dalai Lama on their upcoming addition to the family!
The Pretty Woman star, 69, and his much younger life partner, 35-year-old activist, and publicist Alejandra are still newlyweds as they tied the knot only back in April.
It only took a few months for the pregnancy reports to surface last month.
That being said, today, Alejandra finally confirmed the news by sharing a pic on her Instagram account that featured her and her hubby meeting the Dalai Lama in Rotterdam, The Netherlands
In the snap, the Dalai Lama can be seen putting one of his hands over the expectant mother’s belly while holding her hand with the other.
‘Just a few moments ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come… We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama Muy feliz recibiendo bendiciones para nuestro preciado tesoro por llegar… no lo podía anunciarlo sin antes habérselo dicho a su SS Dalai Lama.. #dalailama #richardgere #alejandragere #love,’ she wrote in the caption, sharing the great news both in Spanish and English.

Both Richard Gere and Alexandra are also the parents of one other child each from previous marriages.
The actor, who’s met the Dalai Lama before and is a Tibetan Buddhist, has an 18-year-old son named Homer.
Meanwhile, his third wife also has a son named Albert, 5.
Hopefully, they will have a daughter just to balance things out but regardless of the baby’s sex, they will definitely still be just as happy to become parents together! Congratulations!
