After attending his wife Alejandra Silva’s 40th birthday celebration with their two children, Richard Gere, who is 73 years old, was sent to the hospital for treatment.
Alejandra gave a recent report on her husband’s health. He had previously informed her they would remain together for at least 20 years.
It was almost as if Richard was destined to meet the woman who would become his wife.
Richard Gere, who is most known for his role in “Pretty Woman,” just became a parent at 70. In 2020, the actor, who is 73 years old, and his wife, Alejandra Silva, who is 40, welcomed their second child together. Alexander Gere, the couple’s eldest son, was born in 2019, and his younger sibling came along not long after that. Both Richard and Alejandra have kids from prior relationships with other people.
Richard was previously married to Cindy Crawford from 1991 until 1995, and then he married Carey Lowell in 2000. Homer Gere was Carey and Richard’s son together. Alejandra had a past marriage to Govind Friedland, and they became parents to a son named Albert Friedland in 2012.

Alejandra shared that her husband, Richard, came down with a case of pneumonia when the family was on holiday in Mexico, despite Richard being in excellent physical condition. In an Instagram post, she claimed that she and the rest of her family have been feeling ill since before her 40th birthday. Regrettably, Richard needed to be admitted to the hospital.

Richard seemed to have been sick since before they left on their trip. TMZ reports that the star suffered from a severe cough just before his family left for vacation. The actor’s symptoms worsened when he and his family were away on vacation. Finally, the symptoms became so severe that he needed medical attention, so he went to a hospital.

The actor was in the hospital for a short period, a lucky turn of events. He was given treatment for pneumonia throughout the night, and he was able to be discharged from the hospital the next day. It would appear that the actor was treated with a strong course of antibiotics to assist in his fight against the sickness, and he has since reunited with his family. Alejandra shared a picture of him taking her and their child on a walk. It has the following caption:
“I woke up this morning and saw the news and all your kind and worrying messages; he is recovering. He is feeling much better today! The worst has already passed! Thank you all for your sweet messages. We appreciate them!”
After the scare with his health, Richard went on vacation with his family members as they continued their journey. In the photo that Alejandra posted to Instagram, she and her son are shown walking along with Richard. The actor looks in good health in the photo, as he is seen cradling his son’s hand while hiding his face behind a mask.
How did Richard and his wife meet, and why did she sleep on the street?
2015 marked the first time Richard and Alejandra were seen together. Even though they’ve known each other for a long time, they didn’t start dating until after they got back in touch. Before they got together, Richard and Alejandra were longtime family friends. Nevertheless, when they saw each other again after a long time apart, they both experienced a great attraction to one another.
Alejandra stated that the minute they saw one another again, she understood that they would spend the rest of their lives together. She argued that their “karmic energy” drew them to one another and that it was futile to resist this connection. They’ve known each other for a long time, greatly enriching their lives. Both of them mentioned that the relationship greatly influenced their lives.

Alejandra runs a non-profit organization in Spain to end homelessness. She has put an incredible amount of effort into her job, even going so far as to sleep on the streets to understand the lives of homeless people better. Yet, she stated that she lacked a sense of direction before she met her husband. She mentioned it:
“I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life. It was a feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path. It had to be that way in this lifetime.”

Richard has also offered his thoughts on his marriage, stating that it is the perfect union. The actor stated that his life has greatly improved since he married Alejandra. He acknowledged that the day he married his wife was the beginning of a new and much more peaceful chapter in his life.
Alejandra stated that her husband has recovered from pneumonia, and Richard and Alejandra have been blissfully married since 2018.
