Silver and suave — onscreen and off! Richard Gere has not only been married three times, but has also made his way around the Hollywood dating scene over the years.
The Pretty Woman star has been married to wife Alejandra Silva since 2018, and together the two have a blended family of six. Gere and Silva welcomed their first child together, Alexander, in February 2019, followed by their second son in April 2020. The Runaway Bride actor is also father to son Homer, born in 2000, with ex-wife Carey Lowell, while Silva shares son Albert, born in 2012, with ex-husband Govind Friedland.
While Gere and Silva tend to keep their family life private — though the Spain native occasionally shares rare photos of their children via social media — the Dr. T & the Women star’s love life has been in the spotlight for decades.
Gere, who has been linked to such high-profile stars as Barbra Streisand, Priscilla Presley and Susan Sarandon over the years, made headlines when he married Cindy Crawford in 1991. The actor had just come off the enormous success of 1990’s Pretty Woman, while Crawford was taking the world by storm as one of the biggest supermodels of the time.
“Look, I learned a lot from Richard. I learned how to be famous,” the Fair Game actress told Porter magazine in 2015 when explaining her decision to not include her ex-husband in her memoir, Becoming. “Again, that’s not a universal lesson. And a lot of the personal things, everything else I learned from that, were for me.”
After the two split in 1995, he went on to marry Lowell in 2002, two years after the birth of their son, Homer. After Lowell filed for divorce from the actor in 2013, Gere went on to date Padma Lakshmi the following year. He met Silva in 2015 — and the rest was history. (Gere and Lowell finalized their divorce one year later.)
“I have found the quiet and happy life that I have always sought,” Gere told Hola! magazine in 2018 about his romance with Silva.
For her part, the philanthropist gushed, “I feel like I’m in a true fairy tale. Without a doubt, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world,” she told Hello! magazine about her marriage to Gere one year later. “He is the most humble, sensitive, affectionate, attentive, funny, generous man that I’ve ever met. What can I say? I’m so in love! How would you feel if each morning you were asked, ‘What would make you happy today?’ Not a day goes by that he doesn’t mention how important I am to him. I feel very lucky.”
