The actor and producer was famously married to supermodel, Cindy Crawford from 1991 to 1995. They first met at a barbecue of the infamous photographer, Herb Ritts, in 1987.

At the time, there was quite a big age gap between the pair.

When they wed, Crawford was twenty-five and Gere was forty-two - and this was reportedly the main reason for their split.

Seven years later, Gere married Bond actress, Carey Lowell.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Silva wrote: “A very special moment just a few minutes ago... Getting blessings for our precious to come.. we couldn’t say it before telling HH Dalai Lama."
