Richard Gere becomes dad again at 69, but he ain’t the only one to do so
Richard Gere, known for his performances in movies like American Gigolo, An Officer and a Gentleman, Pretty Woman, Runaway Bride, I'm Not There, Arbitrage, Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer and many more, has turned father for the second time at the age of 69. The actor’s representative confirmed it to E! News that Gere and his 35-year-old wife Alejandra Silva were blessed with a baby boy a few days ago. Now having a baby at the age of 69 is something quite surprising right! But Gere is not the only one who has embraced fatherhood at such an age, there are many other Hollywood celebs who have done that.
Eddie Murphy, who has made us laugh out loud every time he is on-screen, has 10 kids in total. The 10th one was born in November last year when he was 57-year-old. Actor Jeff Goldblum, who is married to Canadian Olympic gymnast Emilie Livingston, welcomed his first child in 2015 when he was 62 and then his second child was born in 2017 when he was 64. WOW! Actor-singer, Mick Jagger is also not much behind. Jagger welcomed his eighth child in 2016 at the age of 73. By the way, before turning a father for the eighth time, he became a great-grandfather in 2014.
Moving forward let’s talk about Alec Baldwin. The 60-year-old tied the knot with Hilaria in 2012 and have been on baby producing spree since then. They first welcomed a daughter Carmen in 2013, a son Rafael in 2015, then one more son Leo in 2016 and again a son Romeo in 2018.
We are already tired of writing this but the list is yet not complete. The next in the list is Dirty Grandpa, Robert De Niro. In 2011, he welcomed a baby girl through surrogacy. His age at that time was 67. Mad Max actor Mel Gibson has nine children and the ninth was born in 2017 when he was 61-year-old. Four Weddings and a Funeral actor Hugh Grant too has made a mark when it comes to having kids. At the age of 57, last year, he welcomed his fifth child.
Well, Badhaai Ho
it is then!
