The Indecent Proposal star then married Carey Lowell in 2002, after welcoming a son together in 2000.

Homer has kept a fairly low profile over the years, but did step out with his famous father in May 2024 in Cannes, France, where fans got to see how much taller the 24-year-old is than Richard.

About his firstborn, Richard told The Times, “He’s smarter than me, stronger than me, faster than me, taller than me, better than me. He’s great. I love him.”

After divorcing Carey, Richard would go on to marry his third wife, Alejandra Silva, in 2018.

James Gere

All we know about the Geres' second son together is that he is 3 years old at that his name is James.

Like his big brother, we also have not seen the child's face, although he appears in obscured photos with his family online.

Alejandra also has an 11-year-old son from another relationship named Albert.

“We have three small children. An 11-year-old, a five-year-old and a four-year-old. So around nine thirty at night we are all asleep. If we watch something, it will be on the big television we have at home," Richard told Vanity Fair Spain previously about family life at this stage.

"Happy Father’s Day, to the most wonderful dad four boys could ever wish for," Alejandra wrote on Instagram in June 2024.

"Your endless patience, love, and dedication are truly remarkable," she continued. "Happy Father’s Day to the man who is always there for us, making every moment special. Love, Mom, James, Alexander, Albert, [and] Homer."

The family reportedly lives full time in Madrid, Spain, with Richard explaining about the big move from New York, "For me, going to Madrid is going to be a great adventure because I have never lived full-time outside of the United States."

He explained about his wife, “She was very generous in giving me six years living in my world, so I think it is fair that I give her at least another six living in hers."
