The couple has made sure that they don't take each other for granted and look head-over-heels in love even after years of togetherness.
Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva came into each other's lives after they had gone through the heartbreak of failed relationships. The Pretty Woman star has been married twice before but both of the relationships ended before long. In 2018, he tied the knot with Spanish publicist Alejandra Silva and it seems that both of them have finally got their forever.
In an interview with HOLA! the actor revealed that he fell for the Spanish beauty the moment he saw her and knew that their 34-year age difference will never be a hindrance in their relationship. “Our karma was attracted the moment we saw each other. I’m not ignoring our age difference and what it means to be with a Hollywood star, but when there’s such a strong karmic energy, the problems disappear,” he said.
Not just that, it seems Gere was so interested in dating Silva that he sent her flowers daily until she finally agreed to go out with him, the Express reported. After dating for a few years, the couple tied the knot in 2018 and became parents of their first child Alexander in 2019.
After almost six years of companionship, the couple does not fail to make each other feel important. This could be because not everyone is blessed with the opportunity to fall in love and be loved back, over and over. But this couple has been lucky and they do not want to take their time together, for granted.
The 70-year-old actor says that Silva has made him the happiest man in the world. The star couple can also be an inspiration and motivation to all those who think that it's too late for them to find love. "I'm the happiest man in the universe," Express quoted Gere.
“How could I not be? I'm married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who's fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who's a great cook – and who makes the best salads in the world!"
Silva said of Gere, "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?'"
The soon-to-be-parents of their second baby can also inspire people to not take their partners for granted even if they are together for decades. A relationship needs nurturing and that's what the couple has been going for all these years. “Not a day goes by that he doesn't mention how important I am to him. I feel very lucky," Silva added.
The proud dad of Alexander does not leave a stone unturned to make sure that they have the best life together. In doing so, he also made his wife a promise which could mean the world to any woman in love. "He has promised me at least 20 good years!" Fabiosa quoted Silva as saying.
As the much-in-love couple is expecting their second child, we wish them a long and healthy life full of love and peace.
