They named their son after their fathers and gave him the Tibetan name Jigme as Gere is a Buddhist.
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.
Richard Gere's son, Homer James Jigme, joined his father in accepting a special award at the 44th Giffoni Film Festival. Gere married Alejandra Silva in 2018 after romancing her, and the couple has two children. He remains a dedicated father to his young children, spending time with them in their upstate New York home. Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva married earlier in a secret civil ceremony on April 23, 2022. According to a US magazine, She stated, "I was a little lost, without light, and knowing him gave meaning to my life." "I had the impression that someone was reaching out and pointing me in the right direction." She also revealed that the two intended to start a family soon. Silva and Gere were spotted getting cosy on an Italian beach in Taormina, Sicily, in June 2015, while in Italy for the 61st Annual Taormina Film Festival. Alejandra Silva recently shared a rare photo of the couple's three-year-old son Alexander on Instagram.'Daddy, mommy and Alexander,' Alejandra captioned the sweet image, christening her post with a single heart emoji, Daily Mail reported.
