The big surprise might be another child, but there’s no reason to disregard this little bit of celebrity news. There are a few life lessons we can take from the romantic story of Richard and Alejandra.
It’s always possible to find love, even if you feel your years creeping up on you. Even if your previous romantic life hasn’t been a treat, the perfect someone might be out there looking for someone just like you.
Gere certainly isn't the first senior to bring new life into the world. He isn't even the first Hollywood A-lister to become a new father at such an advanced age.
Charlie Chaplin may be the oldest of the bunch, having sired son Christopher at the age of seventy-three. Robert de Niro is also on the list and was older than most at sixty-nine when his daughter Helen came into the world. Gere stands in good company.
Dedicated to His Children
Gere is dedicated to all of his children, and that isn't forgetting his oldest son Homer, or his first son with Silva, Alexander. Gere spoke about his son Homer around the time he welcomed Alexander into the world with the website Bang Showbiz NZ, saying, “He's very sweet, very sensitive, very smart. He's smarter than me, stronger than me, faster than me, taller than me, better than me. He's great. I love him.”
Gere seems like such a happy guy. But, Richard, Homer is in the prime of his life, and you're in your seventies. Of course, he's faster and stronger than you.
Silva has brought plenty of new additions to Gere's life. The two sons are just the beginning, and the Hollywood star feels the love every day!
Bang Showbiz NZ asked if it was love at first sight between Gere and Silva, and he confirmed it. “Instant from my side. I instantly became happy, just looking at her. It was one of those powerful things.” What can we do but wish this happy couple and young parents the best?
A Love Like Theirs
While neither Silva nor Gere had a life that hit the skids, it's always possible to end up enjoying your experience even more. This unlikely couple had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come together and produce plenty of love, and both of them are much happier for it.
May we all find our Silva, or our Gere, out there somewhere. As this happy couple shows us, it's certainly possible for anyone to do it.
