Richard Gere has increasingly appeared in the media recently, not because of his new movies but because of news about his personal life.

Richard Gere’s son, Homer James Jigme Gere, from his marriage to actress Carey Lowell, bears a striking resemblance to his famous father. Despite Gere’s initial reluctance towards fatherhood, his son became the center of his world upon his birth in February 2000. Homer’s occasional appearances alongside his father offer glimpses into their close relationship, notably at the Giffoni Film Festival in 2014.

Now a young adult, Homer attends Brown University, studying Cognitive Neuroscience and Visual Arts. Described as bright and musically inclined, Homer enjoys a private life away from the public eye, with little presence on social media. Gere’s divorce from Lowell in 2016 was preceded by a custody battle over Homer, culminating in joint custody.

Gere’s subsequent marriage to Alejandra Silva welcomed two more sons, Alexander in 2019 and another in 2020, further expanding the family. While the younger Gere boys remain largely out of the public eye, family outings reveal a close and affectionate bond. Despite their private nature, the Gere family cherishes their time together, with Homer continuing his journey through academia and maintaining a balance between privacy and familial responsibilities.
