Richard Gere is reportedly set to become a father again at 68 as his 35-year-old wife is rumoured to be expecting their first child.

The Pretty Woman actor is supposedly gearing up to welcome his first child with the Spanish activist, according to Spanish publication ABC.

Gere was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995 and actress Carey Lowell from 2002-2016, with whom he had his 18-year-old son Homer.

Silva has a five-year old son from a previous marriage.

A representative for Gere has declined to comment.

Gere tied the knot with Silva after four years together in an Indian-inspired ceremony at Gere's ranch outside of New York.

The couple arrived together at the ceremony in a tuk-tuk.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, Gere said: "I'm the happiest man in the universe.

"How could I not be? I'm married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who's fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who's a great cook - and who makes the best salads in the world.

"Alejandra meditates, she's a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel and she's also Spanish - the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Bunuel. You can't get any better than that."

The couple met after the Hollywood star stayed at a hotel Silva's family owns in Positano in Italy in 2014.

Silva is an activist who runs a charity that aims to eradicate homelessness in Spain. Her foundation hosted a screening of Gere's film The Dinner in 2017.
