Love is often associated with youth. However, it can arise during maturity when you meet the right person. This is the case of Richard Gere, who met the woman of his life and, despite the age difference, they got along well because they share the same ideals. And nothing can prevent two people from starting an affair and living as a family.

We delved into how Richard Gere fell in love with Alejandra Silva, what they both think about each other and how they feel several years apart.

Richard Gere met Alejandra Silva when she was young, as the actor had lent her father a boat for a movie. However, it took several years before they could become attracted to each other and start a romantic relationship.

The 2 began dating in 2014, but it was in 2018 that they decided to tie the knot in a low-key wedding. The actor found in his wife a partner who values ​​humanitarian work since Silva works for a foundation that fights to eradicate the homeless in Spain.

He also said that: “I am the happiest man in the universe, how could I not be? I am married to a beautiful woman who is intelligent, sensitive, committed to helping people, fun, patient, forgiving, a great cook, and who makes the best salads in the world. “

The young activist said, in turn: “I feel like I’m in a real fairy tale. Without a doubt, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world… What could be more romantic than a man who writes songs to you every day?

And it is that Gere, staying at the family hotel, wooed her by sending her flowers until she agreed to go out with him, and when they got married, he began to sing to her every day.

In addition, Silva has nothing but praise for her husband: “He is the most humble, sensitive, affectionate, considerate, funny, generous man I have ever met. What I can say? I’m so in love!

How would you feel if every morning you were asked, ‘What would make you happy today?’ Not a day goes by without me mentioning how important I am to him. I feel very lucky”.

Both were going through the divorce process when they met again after a long time. And even though they have been separated for more than 30 years, that has not been an impediment to the love and support they have for each other to overcome their struggles.

On this subject, Silva said: “Love stories with a complicated beginning, where you have to overcome difficulties together, can bring you closer together … I’m sure at some point I had some doubts. At first, he was more convinced than I was. But from a very young age, we felt that we were destined to be together. “

In 2019 they welcomed a boy they named Alexander. Although they both already have their respective children from their previous marriages, this was the first one they welcomed together.

And in 2020 they announced the birth of their second baby. They currently live together on a ranch in New York where they spend time together in complete privacy.
