Alejandra Silva confirmed she and husband Richard Gere are expecting their first child together by sharing a photo of the couple with the Dalai Lama.
The photo shows Gere, a Buddhist, and the Dalai Lama with their hands on Silva's baby bump.
"A very special moment just a few minutes ago ... Getting blessings for our precious to come," Silva wrote.
"We couldn't announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama."
The actor and ex-wife Carey Lowell have a son, Homer, 18, while Silva and ex-husband Govind Friedland also have a son, Albert.
