A representative of the 69-year-old actor told CNN on Monday that Gere and his wife, Alejandra Silva, 35, have received a baby. No more details were given about the date and the name.
This is the first child of the couple, but both have children from previous relationships. Gere has a 19-year-old son from her marriage to Carey Lowell and Silva has a son with her ex-husband, Govind Friedland.
Gere and Silva got married last year after leaving since 2015, shortly after she finished her divorce.
Silva is originally from Spain and his father is Ignacio Silva, former vice president of Real Madrid Football Club.
In September, Silva posted a photo of her with Gere visiting the Dalai Lama. Gere is a Buddhist and an old friend of the spiritual leader exiled from Tibet.
She has also been documenting her pregnancy on Instagram.
Gere was also married to supermodel Cindy Crawford, from 1991 to 1995.
