Will Richard Gere become a father again at 69?

Richard Gere will turn 69 later this month, but — if you believe the rumor mill — he has even bigger things to celebrate.

According to reports in the Spanish daily newspaper ABC — and now spreading its way through the tabloids — the Pretty Woman star and his bride of mere months, Alejandra Silva Gere, a 35-year-old publicist and activist from Spain, are expecting their first child together.

The news originates from Spanish TV host Lydia Lozano, a panelist on the gossip show Sálvame Deluxe, who first reported on July 25 that Alejandra was pregnant and Gere would be a father again within six months. ABC then reported the news and claimed it’s “confirmed.”

That’s where things get a little murky because we reached out to Gere’s publicist, who said he has “no knowledge at this time” of and “therefore no comment.”

And this is one of Alejandra’s latest Instagram posts — though it could be a throwback.


But it’s also worth noting that Gere didn’t confirm their nuptials either.

If they are in fact having a child, this will bring their party to five. The actor is already a father to an 18-year-old son, Homer, with his second wife, Carey Lowell. (He became a first-time father at 50.) Meanwhile, Alejandra has a 5-year-old son, Albert, with her ex-husband.

After the pair tied the knot in April, which was followed by a celebration for family and friends at his Westchester County, N.Y., estate on Cinco de Mayo, a Gere insider told People magazine that the acting legend, who was also married to Cindy Crawford, “has been much happier in this half of his life because he is settled, confident, and doing what he likes.”



The couple first met almost 20 years ago when Silva was a teenager and Gere borrowed a boat from her father to shoot a TV ad. (Her dad is a businessman and the former vice president of the Real Madrid Football Club. However, they didn’t couple up until 2014.

    Forget Gilead Sciences: Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Is a Better Growth Stock

    Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ: GILD) has clearly lost its luster as a growth stock over the last three years, thanks to a suite of setbacks for its oncology and hepatitis C franchises, as well as an increasingly competitive HIV marketplace. Gilead's stock, for instance, has woefully underperformed the broader biotech landscape during the past 36 months. With a price-to-sales ratio of 18.9 at present, Intercept's stock might not look like an outright bargain.

    Walmart is aggressively shifting away from its most legendary shopping format

    Walmart (WMT) continues to kill off the American shopping creation it’s most known for, the massive supercenter that sells everything under one roof. With the U.S. market already having more than 3,500 Walmart supercenters and a focus by CEO Doug McMillon to increase spending on eCommerce and India, Walmart said Tuesday it will open a mere 10 supercenters in 2019. The company has reduced emphasis on the store format pioneered by founder Sam Walton – which could average a gargantuan 178,000 square feet – in recent years.

    Here's the Average Social Security Benefit for 2019

    Millions of seniors collect Social Security, and without it, they'd be underwater on their bills. At present, the average retiree gets $1,422 a month in Social Security benefits. There's a world of misinformation surrounding Social Security, and perhaps one of the most detrimental myths out there is the notion that the program is enough to sustain seniors by itself.

    Sears faces tough foe: an unforgiving bankruptcy code

    The change stems from a 2005 legislative overhaul of the bankruptcy code that forced companies to find an agreement within seven months on its real-estate leases, or allow landlords to walk away from the agreement. The law intensifies the pressure on Sears and Chairman Eddie Lampert to restructure the company and turn it into a relevant, viable business. Sears did not respond to requests seeking comment.

    Marijuana stocks to watch: Canopy Growth is the cannabis business’s $4 billion gorilla

    The following article is part of a package of stories that MarketWatch is publishing to mark the start of full legalization of cannabis for adult use in Canada on Wednesday. Smith Falls, Ontario–based Canopy Growth Corp. made headlines and drove cannabis stocks to new heights over the summer when it announced that Corona brewer Constellation Brands Inc. was going to invest an additional $4 billion in the company. Billed by both companies as a strategic partnership, the additional $4 billion investment adds to the 9.9% stake that Constellation bought in October of last year and sets the company up to either be bought outright by Constellation — via warrants that could increase its stake to more than 50% — or continue to work with the beverage company to create a range of consumer-focused cannabis products that may one day appear in markets in dozens of countries.

    Saudi Arabia could hike oil prices over the Khashoggi case. Here's why it would backfire

    Fears are spreading that Saudi Arabia, amid the growing global outcry caused by the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, may hit back at potential economic sanctions by weaponizing its oil dominance. A look at history and geopolitics suggests that while a Saudi-driven oil price spike would bring pain for much of the world, it would ultimately backfire on itself. Turkish officials allege that Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Washington Post contributor, was murdered on orders of the Saudi government.

    USAF quiet on delivery schedule for Boeing KC-46 tanker to Wichita

    With the month now half over, it appears less and less likely that McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita will receive its first KC-46 tanker from the Boeing Co. in October as previously hoped.  Boeing (NYSE: BA) last week deferred direct comment on the delivery schedule for the first tanker’s arrival to McConnell to the U.S. Air Force, as the aircraft is now involved in testing for its military type certificate.   A spokesperson for the service told the WBJ that it did not have any updates on the certification timeline or first delivery schedule at this time.  That leaves just two weeks for the tanker to still obtain its needed military type certificate and arrive in Wichita to meet the October goal. Boeing had reiterated that goal as recently as early last month when it was announced that the aircraft had completed its needed Federal Aviation Administration certifications.

    Why New Age Beverage Corp. Stock Popped Today

    Shares of New Age Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ: NBEV) were climbing again today, riding a surge on marijuana stocks as growers like Tilray, Cronos Group, and Canopy Growth all jumped by double digits. Along with the bullish sentiment in the industry, a number of other factors seemed to be driving New Age shares higher, including the recent hiring of a new CFO, the upcoming legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada on Wednesday, and the market's reaction to its launch last week of a new line of beverages infused with cannabidiol (CBD). On Friday, New Age named Gregory Gould as its new CFO, a notable move as Gould brings experience from the pharmaceutical industry, which should help the beverage company as it moves into CBD products.

    Shares were unchanged in premarket trading, with the company forecasting adjusted 2018 earnings per share in the range of $8.13 and $8.18, marginally up from a previous range of $8.07 to $8.17. "This is exactly how we want to start the third earnings season," BMO Capital Markets analyst Joanne Wuensch wrote in a note, referring to the overall sales number. As Remicade faces increased competition and sales of medical devices and some consumer products weaken, J&J has been relying on its new cancer drugs as well as deals like the $30 billion purchase of rare disease specialist Actelion last year.

Allen died Monday in Seattle from complications of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, according to his company Vulcan Inc. He was 65.

    Offshore drillers eye recovery by 2020

    Transocean Ltd (RIGN.S), a top supplier of drilling vessels, said last month that rates for its new high-spec vessels in the North Sea are now fetching $300,000 a day. Transocean last year acquired rival Songa Offshore SE [SONG.UL] and recently agreed to buy deep water expert Ocean Rig UDW (ORIG.O) for $2.7 billion. Tie-ups with state run giants like Aramco (IPO-ARMO.SE) and Qatar Petroleum [QATPE.UL] are expected to boost rates in the Middle East for drillers in the jack-up - or shallow water - rig market, while the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and West Africa are already showing signs of recovery, Rystad Energy analyst Oddmund Fore said.
