The pair were married from 1991-1995. After that marriage ended, the Chicago star was married to the mother of his 18-year-old son Homer, Carey Lowell from 2002-2015. Alejandra was married to engineer, and the father of her son Albert, Govind Friedland, from 2012- 2015. Richard and Alejandra’s love story began through their shared desire for humanitarianism. “I have found the quiet and happy life that I have sought,” Richard has said.
In a past interview with HOLA!, the actress opened up about her love saying: “I was a little lost, without light and knowing him gave meaning to my life.” Adding: “It was feeling that someone was reaching out and showing me my true path." The couple began their relationship in Positano, on the Amalfi coast, and made their debut at the Madrid premiere of Time Out of Mind in 2015.

Rumors of an engagement were sparked in November, when Alejandra - the daughter of former Vice President of the Real Madrid soccer team - was spotted out with a diamond ring on her wedding finger. The pair, who survived an international long distance relationship, now call New York their home.
