A big congratulations to Richard Gere, 68, and Alejandra Silva, 35, who have got married! Sources close to the couple told HELLO!'s sister publication HOLA! that the wedding took place at the beginning of April, and the pair plan to celebrate with family and friends on 6 May at their home in New York. The duo first started dating in 2014, and have been blissfully happy ever since. This is Richard's third marriage - he was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995 and actress Carey Lowell, the mother of his only son, Homer, 17, from 2002 until 2016. Alejandra was married to Govind Friedland, with whom she shares five-year-old son Albert.

Richard and Alejandra share a passion for travel and humanitarian work. "I have found the quiet and happy life that I have always sought," said the Pretty Woman actor. Alejandra confessed some time ago in the pages of HOLA!: "I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life. It was feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path." Alejandra also confirmed to HOLA! that the couple would like to start a family in the future.

The couple began dating in Positano, on the Amalfi coast, and were first spotted together at the Madrid premiere of Time Out of Mind in 2015, in which Richard played homeless man George. Rumours of an engagement first sparked in November, when Alejandra - the daughter of a former Vice President of Real Madrid - was spotted out with a diamond ring on her wedding finger. During the first years they were dating, Richard and Alejandra survived a long distance relationship, with Alejandra living in Madrid with her son for part of the year. They are now both settled in New York, where Richard resides.
