Gere has a 19-year-old son from his previous marriage with actress Carey Lowell while Silva has a son with her former husband, Govin Friedland.

Last year, Silva announced their pregnancy on Instagram in September last year after she posted a photograph of herself with Gere seeking blessings from Tibetan spiritual leader, Dalai Lama.

The photo showed Dalai Lama placing his hand on Silva’s stomach as Gere standing by her side

However, the post has been deleted.

Nevertheless, Silva has been public about the pregnancy as she has been documenting it on her Instagram account

“Receiving a blessing from our precious soon to come… we couldn’t announce it before telling His Holiness the Dalai Lama,” the post read.

Gere married Silva who works as a publicist after a four-year relationship. The couple tied the knot in early in 2018 in a civil ceremony in Madrid

“I’m the happiest man in the universe,” Gere told Hello! magazine in an exclusive interview after the wedding.

“How could I not be? I’m married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, (and) 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!”

Gere was also married to supermodel Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995.
