Richard Gere is gearing up for fatherhood again. 

The 69-year-old actor and his 35-year-old wife, Alejandra Silva, confirmed they’re expecting their first child together with a photo of their bun in the oven meeting the Dalai Lama, natch. 

The mom-to-be captioned the photo, “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??” 

Gere already shares an 18-year-old son (Homer) with his ex-wife Carey Lowell, and Silva has a 5-year-old son (Albert) from her previous marriage to financier Govind Friedland. Silva and Friedland officially divorced in 2015 after being separated for about a year and she began dating Gere in 2014. The couple quietly wed in a civil ceremony in April of this year and celebrated their nuptials surrounded by friends and family in New York in May.

Ahem, Gere? You might want to reach out to Hugh Grant or George Clooney for some dad advice.
