Alejandra, a 35-year-old Spanish publicist and activist, had broken the news of her pregnancy by posting a picture on Instagram, “A very special moment just a few minutes ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come.. we couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama.”
In the photo, the Hollywood couple can be seen taking blessings from the Dalai Lama. The Pretty Woman star is a Buddhist and a longtime friend of Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader.
Alejandra has a son with her ex-husband, Govind Friedland, reported CNN. Richard and Alejandra married last year after dating since 2015, shortly after she finalized her divorce. Alejandra is originally from Spain and her father is Ignacio Silva, the former vice president of the Real Madrid Football Club.
Richard hogged the headlines earlier this year, when he was countersued for trying to “steal” a project from his producing partners, Random Acts Entertainment, just days after he sued them for allegedly trying to extort him.
