After decades in the spotlight, Richard Gere is still beloved by fans of his films. The 73-year-old man married for the third time in 2018 to the very outspoken Alejandra Silva.
As a result, when tragedy happened during the family’s vacation, she was very open about the circumstances that had resulted in Richard Gere being hospitalized. Just read on to find out…
Richard Gere, his wife Alejandra Silva, and their two children took a trip to Mexico. In honor of Alejandra’s fortieth birthday, the group took a trip to a tropical destination.
While on vacation with his family, the actor reportedly came down with the illness. An actor’s rep confirmed the news to NBC News, but would not provide any other information.
The news outlet continued by saying that the actor from The American Gigolo had a cough before going to Mexico, but that it got much worse there. His severe coughing eventually prompted him to seek medical attention, where he was ultimately diagnosed with pneumonia. After spending the night in the hospital for observation, the actor was discharged the next day.
The actor’s 40-year-old wife saw all the support and concern from fans and decided to put a stop to the rumors and questions on social media. She captioned a photo of herself and Gere going hand-in-hand with their son, “.” She captioned the image, “I woke up this morning and I saw the news and all your kind and [worried] messages,” she captioned the post. “He is recovering he is feeling much better today!”
She further added, “The worst has already [passed]!” Silva continued. “Thank you all for [your] sweet messages we really appreciate them! ♥️♥️ #thankyou.”
From Silva’s earlier social media posts, we can infer that the entire family is ill. In a post that included a photo of her and her two kids taking a stroll along the beach, she wrote, “Thank you all for the birthday wishes.. after almost 3 weeks of everyone being sick in our family, today finally I feel much better! Thank you for all the love ❤️ I give it all back to you! ��� #happybirthday #happy40.”
The family’s current state of health is cause for great celebration. Let’s all join together in wishing them well and success.
