Richard Gere, a father of three, had his second child at the age of 70 and his third child in 2020. Gere's first child Homer James Jigme Gere now is 22 years old. Homer is just as dapper as his father. He is the son of Richard Gere and Carey Lowell. Homer likes to live a private life and keeps a low profile as far as the media is concerned. Before splitting up, the couple had been together for 18 years, 14 of which were married. Gere desired a private life focused on his humanitarian work for environmental causes and AIDS awareness. Lowell, on the other hand, reportedly desired to continue their high-flying lifestyle, Mirror UK reported.

Their son Homer has grown up to look exactly like his handsome father, who had women drool over his gorgeousness in films such as Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, and more. Gere had previously been married to Cindy Crawford but they had no children. He was more than ready to embark on the journey of fatherhood with Lowell. "It was actually quite easy. I never had a problem with children in any way. Carey had a child from a previous marriage, and caring for this child, having our own child, seemed natural. It was completely natural and appropriate," he told The Guardian. They named their son after their fathers and gave him the Tibetan name Jigme because Gere is a Buddhist and a supporter of the Free Tibet Movement. Gere's life was altered when he became a father. "When you weigh the marginal stuff against the important things in your life, it just doesn't matter. All of the clichés about parenting are true." he continued.
