Richard Gere is being celebrated on Father's Day.

On Sunday, June 16, the actor’s wife Alejandra Silva posted a heartfelt message to the actor, 74, alongside a rare picture of their sons Alexander, 5, a younger son, 3, whose name they've not shared publicly, and Albert, 9, Silva's child from a previous relationship.

The Pretty Woman star is ultra-private when it comes to his family and Silva, 41, kept the faces of the children blurred in the shared photos.

“Happy Father’s Day, to the most wonderful dad four boys could ever wish for,” Silva's caption read alongside a carousel of family snaps. Gere also shares son Homer James, 24, with ex-wife Carey Lowell and is a stepfather to her daughter, Hannah.

“Your endless patience, love, and dedication are truly remarkable," added Silva.

Gere’s Father’s Day appreciation comes after he attended the afterparty of his film Oh, Canada at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival with his wife and son Homer in May.

Looking smart as they posed for snaps at the Lucia Cannes restaurant, Gere and Homer sported matching tuxedo suits, while Silva wore a black floral-embroidered gown.

"Proud of him ♥️ #ohcanada #cannesfilmfestival #richardgere,” Silva wrote as she shared a photo of Gere and herself on the red carpet.

Back in April, Gere opened up about moving his family to Silva's native Spain.

"The truth is we don't go out much. We have three small children. An 11-year-old, a 5-year-old, and a 4-year-old," he told Vanity Fair Spain . "So around 9:30 at night, we are all asleep. If we watch something, it will be on the big television we have at home."
