Richard Gere is recovering in Mexico this weekend after he caught a case of pneumonia — this while vacationing with his family — but the good news is … he’s gonna be alright.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the actor is down near Nuevo Vallarta this week — where he’s celebrating the 40th birthday of his wife, Alejandra Silva, with their kids. Alejandra posted a photo Thursday showing her and the kiddos walking toward a beach.
We’re told that, before the trip, Richard developed a bad cough … and it continued while he was there as well. Our sources say it got so bad, he had to check himself into a hospital … where we’re told he was diagnosed with pneumonia and treated in an overnight stay. Unclear what day he went in, but we’re told it was during his vacation — which is ongoing.
Interestingly, Alejandra herself alluded to a sickness that apparently continued to dog Richard. In the IG post from Thursday … she said the whole family had been ill for 3 weeks.
However, her IG Story post from Saturday seems to confirm what we’re hearing about RG’s condition — namely, that he’s okay. You can see her, Richard, and one of their kids walking … and she notes it’s another beach day for them. Richard is seen wearing a mask.
