Richard Gere will become a dad again at the age of 69.
The wife of Pretty Woman star Alejandra Silva is pregnant with her first child.
Richard is already a father of one.
She shared the joyful news on her Instagram account by sending a picture of the Dalai Lama blessing her child.
The 35-year-old businesswoman and activist wrote: "A very special moment a few minutes ago … to get blessings for our loved ones … we could not announce it before we HH Dalai Lama …"
Richard described himself as the "happiest man in the universe" after he married Alejandra in April.
The couple tied the knot in an Indian-inspired ceremony on his ranch outside of New York.
In an interview with Hello! Magazine, Richard said: "I am the happiest man in the universe.
"How could I not be? I'm married to a beautiful woman who's smart, sensitive, dedicated, helping people who are having fun, being patient, who knows how to forgive, who a great cook is – and who the best Salads prepared world!
"Alejandra meditates, she is a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel, and she is also a Spaniard – the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Bunuel.

The couple met after the 2014 Hollywood star stayed at a hotel owned by Silva's family in Positano, Italy.
Alejandra is an activist who runs a charity that wants to put an end to homelessness in Spain.
She once said that Richard sent her flowers again and again until she agreed to meet him and that he regularly wrote songs about her.
When they met for the first time when they met, she once said, "A friend introduced us, we looked at each other and felt a very strong connection.
"We could not stop staring at all night, and since then we have not been separated."
