Richard Gere becomes a father again at 69

Star of the 1990 film Pretty Woman, Richard Gere has become a father for the second time at the ripe age of 69 with his 36-year-old Spanish wife Alejandra Silva giving birth to early this week.

This is Gere's second child, with his first child from his previous marriage to Carey Lowell just turning 18.

Richard has certainly kept fatherhood to later in life. What do you think about him fathering his children at 51 and 69?

I've been doing it all wrong.

Our Latin teacher had a grin when the translation was, 'He had done her wrong'.  Referring of course to some personal slight.

The only boys who were listening with noggin switched on caught his eye and the inference, 'Which way did he do her that was so wrong?'

He and we were so innocent back then. 

One wonders (best not to) what an array of possibilities might go through the mind of an early secondary student these days, esp. in Dan's 'Malburne', Australia's most hipster city.

Its the kind of thing which could only happen in Hollywood. ;)

Oh for goodness sake. Why would or should anybody, who has and is living, a decent worthwhile life even consider that what this particular person does is any of their business at all.

Exactly, Polly Esther,

This  question is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

 

Love Richard Gere. Congratulations! I don't think it matters what age you are when you father a child..as long as you are mentally, physically able and financially secure to look after the child.

YES I agree - congratulations to Richard - great actor and seems a lovely man.

It is always okay for men to father children at a late age, but when a women does so many people criticize them. Look for the stories on the internet about women giving birth late in life and see the flak they get.

It isn't 'people' who presume to be the experts and moral guardians where 'relationships' and fertility decisions are concerned, it is women.  Their heads spin if any man should think of giving an opinion of those and other deemed exclusive preserves of women.

But why doesn't 'love' rule in this case?  Love and anything goes. Or is that only apply to gays?

IMO it is far too old -- and they need to think of the Kids -- who feels like doing what should be done with kids at those ages -- when the kids get to ages when they should be taking out and about and played with ect  -- yes they have the coin to pay someone -- but it is NOT like Mum and Dad

Excepting where luminaries of social 'Progressivism' are concerned, where there is instant approval and much gushing.
