Alexander Gere, their eldest, was born in 2019, and his younger brother followed shortly afterwards. Richard and Alejandra have more kids from prior relationships.
Richard was married to Cindy Crawford from 1991 until 1995 before marrying Carey Lowell in 2000. Together, Carey and Richard had a son called Homer Gere. The year 2012 saw the birth of Alejandra and Govind Friedland’s son, Albert Friedland.
While Richard became a parent for the second time late in life, Alejandra reports that he remains in outstanding physical shape. She said that her husband sometimes has more energy than she does. She also said that Richard had assured her that they would spend more than a decade together.
While Richard is in excellent health, his wife Alejandra recently disclosed that he developed pneumonia when the family was on holiday in Mexico. In an Instagram post, she said that her family had been ailing since before her 40th birthday. Richard was compelled to be hospitalized.
Richard appears to have been ill since before their vacation. The star had a severe cough before leaving with his family. During his vacation, the actor’s ailments worsened, and his family also became ill. Ultimately, the severity of his problems forced him to seek medical attention.
Thankfully, the actor’s hospitalization was brief. He was treated for pneumonia overnight and was discharged from the hospital the next day. The actor reportedly had an intensive course of medication to combat the condition and has now rejoined his family. Even Alejandra uploaded a picture of him strolling with her and their child.
After the health crisis, the family has resumed their vacation, and Richard looks to have joined them. In an Instagram image by Alejandra, she and her kid are seen strolling with Richard. In the shot, the actor seems to be doing well, as he is holding his son’s hand while wearing a mask.
In 2015, Richard and Alejandra were first seen together. Although they had known each other for years, they only began dating after reconnecting. Before becoming together, Richard and Alejandra were old family friends, but when they reunited, they both felt a tremendous affinity for one another.
Alejandra said that the minute they reunited, she felt they were intended to be together. She argued that their “karmic energy” drew them to one another and that resistance was pointless. They have considerably enhanced each other’s lives throughout the years. Both parties agreed that the connection altered their lives.
Alejandra operates a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating homelessness in Spain. She has devoted an amazing amount of effort to her job, including sleeping on the streets to get insight into the lives of homeless individuals. She stated, however, that she felt aimless before meeting her spouse.
She remarked: that she was a bit lost and in the dark, and knowing him gave her life purpose. It was the sensation that someone was guiding her down her proper path. This must be the case in this lifetime.
Richard has also spoken about his marriage, stating that it is the ideal partnership. The actor said that his life has improved after his marriage to Alejandra. He acknowledged that his life has been much more tranquil since he met his wife.
Since 2018, Richard and Alejandra have been happily married, and Alejandra has said that Richard has recovered from his pneumonia.
