Richard Gere's only son Homer James Jigme Gere is all grown up, and he is the spitting image of his legendary father.


Homer, who was born in February 2000, is the child of Richard and his then-partner, actress Carey Lowell.

In spite of his parents’ divorce, Homer is very close to his father.


From 1991 to 1995, Richard was married to supermodel Cindy Crawford. In November 2002, he tied the knot with Carey.

The former couple separated after 11 years of marriage. They spent three years in highly contested divorce proceedings in New York County Supreme Court. In October 2016, the case was settled.


In spite of his parents’ divorce, Homer is very close to his father. A lot of people noticed a striking resemblance between the two. Homer is a lookalike copy of Richard in his young years.

Richard, who started in films in the 1970s, playing a supporting role in "Looking for Mr. Goodbar," married Spanish activist Alejandra Silva in early April 2018 after being an item for four years.


Unlike many celebrities, the couple didn't host a big and expensive party; instead, they wedded in secrecy in a civil ceremony.

The most noticeable aspect of their relationship is their age difference. Even though Alejandra is younger than Richard, it doesn't seem to be a problem for the couple.


In August 2018, they announced that they were expecting their first child together. Richard and Alejandra's child, a baby boy, was born in early February, and they named him Alexander, a sweet nod to Alejandra as the Spanish translation of Alexander is Alejandro.


Richard currently serves an active role on the board of directors for Healing the Divide, an organization that helps and supports several global initiatives that promote peace and justice.

As for Alejandra, she is in charge of Rais Fundacion, a non-profit organization that aims to end homelessness in Spain. She has previously slept on the street to experience what homeless people go through every day.
