A source close to the couple confirmed the pregnancy to PEOPLE in November. The news came nine months after Alejandra gave birth to Alexander in February.

Gere and Alejandra have known each other for over a decade, and first began dating in 2014.

In April 2018, a source close to the pair told PEOPLE they had married "weeks and weeks ago" and were "extraordinarily happy," adding, "They're so comfortable with each other, have fun together and are looking forward to their future together."

After news of their marriage broke, a film source who has known Gere for years told PEOPLE he "has been much happier in this half of his life because he is settled, confident and doing what he likes."

Alejandra previously revealed her pregnancy with the couple's older son on social media, sharing a photo showing the Dalai Lama blessing her baby bump.

"We couldn't announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama☺️," added the Spanish businesswoman and activist in her September 2018 post.
