New Delhi:

Hollywood star Richard Gere is expecting his second child and first with new wife Alejandra Silva- at 69 years old.

The Pretty Woman star and his wife, Alejandra Silva, 35, have confirmed they are expecting a baby.

Spanish activist and publicist Silva posted a photo on Instagram of the couple with the Dalai Lama, saying they were “getting blessings for our precious to come”.

"A very special moment just a few minutes ago? Getting blessings for our precious to come," she captioned a photo of her with the Dalai Lama and Gere in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

The actor, who is a Buddhist, and the spiritual leader are both bowing and placing their hands on her baby bump.

"We couldn't announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama," she quipped.

Gere, 69, also shares 18-year-old son Homer James Jigme with ex-wife Carey Lowell.

The couple have been sparking baby speculation since August, when Spanish outlet ABC reported that Silva was pregnant.

Gere was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995, and actress Carey Lowell from 2002 to 2016, with whom he has his 18-year-old son Homer. Silva has a five-year-old son from a previous relationship.

Gere and Silva had secretly wed on April 23 after more than three years of dating.
