Richard Gere is now a father of three!

The 70-year-old actor and his wife, Alejandra Silva, 37, recently welcomed their second child together, a baby boy, TODAY confirmed. Spanish magazine Hola! was first to report the news.

The couple hasn't publicly shared their newborn's name but are said to be enjoying their new addition at their ranch in Pound Ridge, New York. The baby boy joins big brother Alexander, who was born 14 months ago. Gere has a 20-year-old son, Homer, with ex-wife Carey Lowell. Silva has a son, Albert, from a previous marriage.

Gere and Silva, a Spanish-born political activist, tied the knot at their ranch in 2018.

She shared the happy news they were expecting their first child together in an Instagram post a few months later.

"I'm so happy!" she wrote next to a selfie showing her baby bump.

The couple announced last November that they were expecting their second child after getting a blessing from the Dalai Lama.

“A very special moment just a few minutes ago... Getting blessings for our precious to come.. we couldn’t say it before telling HH Dalai Lama,” Silva captioned a photo of her, her husband and the spiritual leader in a since-deleted post on Instagram.
