At 72, you would forgive him for wanting nothing more than to relax on the beach while on holiday. But an energetic Richard Gere showed no sign of taking it easy as he spent time with his wife and two sons in Spain. 

The Pretty Woman actor was spotted diving into the sea off a yacht and later laughing as he dashed around on a jet ski on the island of Formentera. He and his wife Alejandra Silva, 39, were also seen embracing and holding hands during a walk along the sand. 

The Hollywood star  who set pulses racing in his breakout role as an escort in 1980s movie American Gigolo  became a father for the third time in April 2020 when Miss Silva gave birth to their second son.

The pair had their first child Alexander in 2019, and Gere has 22-year-old son Homer with his ex-wife, model Carey Lowell.  Miss Silva is also mother to a nine-year-old son with her ex-husband Govind Friedland, the son of American mining magnate Robert Friedland.

Gere and his wife initially had a long-distance romance, splitting their time between America and Spain but now live in New York. The young family recently moved into a £7.9million 35-acre estate after downsizing from Gere’s nearby palatial mansion which was put on the market for £22.4million.

The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom, red-brick Northshire manor is located an hour north of Manhattan in an affluent enclave of Westchester County, North Salem, New York.

Miss Silva previously revealed she believed karma had brought the couple back together after they first met when she was a ‘little girl’ and the actor borrowed a boat from her businessman father, Ignacio Silva.

They then reconnected in 2014 in Positano, Italy, where she was running a luxury hotel. Gere married the Spanish publicist in May 2018 near New York in a low-key civil ceremony.
