LONDON:- Richard Gere feels like ‘the happiest man in the universe’ to be married to Alejandra Silva. The ‘Pretty Woman’ star, 68, tied the knot with the 35-year-old businesswoman in an Indian-inspired ceremony in New York in April and has admitted he wakes up every morning with a smile on his face because he can’t believe he’s got such a ‘’beautiful woman’’ on his arm. Speaking to HELLO! magazine, he said: ‘’I’m the happiest man in the universe. How could I not be? I’m married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who’s fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who’s a great cook - and who makes the best salads in the world!


 Alejandra meditates, she’s a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel... and she’s also Spanish: the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Buñuel... You can’t get any better than that.’’
