Richard Gere and Alejandra Silva have completed the final chapter in their love story. The Hollywood star and the Spanish activist, who made their love official during a civil ceremony in April, celebrated their union with family and friends during a special party at the actor’s ranch – located outside of New York City. “I am the happiest man in the universe,” the 68-year-old told HOLA! USA. “Alejandra is beautiful, sensitive and committed. You can't beat that.” The 35-year-old echoed his sentiments saying: “I die of love. I feel like this is an authentic fairy tale."
"Every morning, he asks me: 'What would make you happy today,' And every day he composes a song for me." Inside the magazine, the couple speak to us about their love story – that started in the idyllic town of Positano, located off the Amalfi Coast, and share pictures of the bride’s three wedding dresses from the Buddhist ceremony.
The pair met during a chance meeting at a hotel owned by Alejandra’s family. 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.
Alejandra and Richard’s love story is available in English and Spanish inside of HOLA! USA’s digital issue, available on Apple and Google Store.
