The couple announced the news with the assistance of another high-profile persona—the Dalai Lama. "A very special moment just a few minutes ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come," wrote Silva in an Instagram message that accompanied a photo of said blessings. Gere, a Tibetan Buddhist, wed Silva in April, notes USA Today. He has an 18-year-old son from a previous marriage; Silva has a 5-year-old son. (More Richard Gere stories.)
