"What could be more romantic than a man who writes you songs every day?" says Alejandra Silva, as she gushes about her marriage with the silver-haired star.
Believing with all their heart that destiny brought them together, Richard Gere and his wife Alejandra Silva are living out the fairytale that they have always hoped for.
Richard Gere was actually a friend of Alejandra Silva's family and the two of them first met when the latter was a little girl. They met years later in 2014 and immediately felt a "very strong connection" according to The Sun. "A friend introduced us, we looked at each other and felt a very strong connection," Alejandra Silva, told Hello! "We couldn't stop looking at each other all night, and since then we haven't been apart."
Richard Gere was so keen on taking her out on a date that he sent Alejandra Silva flowers until she agreed. Ever since then, he makes her feel special every day and he even "regularly writes her songs". He does all that he can to make her feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
"I feel like I'm in a true fairytale," Alejandra Silva previously said. "Without a doubt, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world… What could be more romantic than a man who writes you songs every day?"
They exchanged vows and got married in April 2018 and welcomed their first child together just a few months ago. In the chaos of his fame and Hollywood glamor, he always longed for a partner that he could share the simple, quiet pleasures of life with. And Alejandra Silva gave him that, along with the joys of a family.
"I'm the happiest man in the universe. How could I not be?" Richard Gere said. "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!"
The two found in each other the partner of their dreams and couldn't be more in love. "He is the most humble, sensitive, affectionate, attentive, funny, generous man that I've ever met," said Alejandra Silva.
What's most important is that even after spending years together, Richard Gere still takes time out to make his wife feel special and feel valued. Alejandra Silva added, "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."
As a caring partner, Richard Gere gives his wife the priceless feeling of being loved and making her feel mattered. "Richard has been my hero in real life," she told Hola, as reported by The Telegraph. "I was a little lost, without light, and meeting him gave sense to my life. I felt like someone was stretching out his hand and showing me the true path."
They make each other happy and even the people around them can see it. An insider told People, “They’re so comfortable with each other, have fun together and are looking forward to their future together.”
The couple never doubts that they were meant to find each other. While the world may think that their age gap of more than 30 years is a factor that might come in between them, but for Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva, they were destined to be together. “Our karma was attracted the moment we saw each other,” said Alejandra Silva. “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.”
Together, they both have committed themselves to the cause of helping people in need, especially working towards eradicating homelessness. Through it all, they will never forget to cherish the partner standing beside them with love and encouragement.
