AceShowbiz - Richard Gere thrilled his new Spanish bride by performing a Flamenco dance and singing to her at their wedding reception. The "Pretty Woman" star exchanged vows with Alejandra Silva last month, and he made sure his wife had a night to remember by showing off his dance moves.
Alejandra tells Spain's HOLA! magazine, "When we took the dance floor to dance to this Flamenco group and just after a couple steps - because I have to tell you, he is a really good flamenco dancer - Richard took the microphone and he started singing. Everybody was so surprised, including myself."
She also reveals her five-year-old son, Albert, and Homer, Richard's 18-year-old son from his marriage to Carey Lowell, were ring bearers at the top secret ceremony. "The ceremony was beautiful," she explains. "We exchanged vows and rings - our children were the ring bearers and it was very emotional. I have to admit I cried a lot. When he saw me, Richard said I was the most spectacular woman he had ever seen. And I couldn't stop smiling. I just replied, 'I love you.' "
Meanwhile, Alejandra insists she and her new husband were destined to be together, even though she is 33 years younger than Gere. "Life was supposed to be like this...," she gushes. "He has promised me at least 20 good years. And I have to confess, he has a lot more energy than I do, he is so active it is difficult to keep up. It's not even human!"
"I think I give him some sense of stability. The fact that I am not an actress or a model helps - I was never interested in those things. What brought us closer was our wish to help people in need, our commitment to Buddhism and the Tibetan people," she adds.
