Richard cradled little Alexander in his arms as he and Alejandra posed for photos together with their son. 

The Primal Fear star wrapped a large beige towel around his waist, and used the material to shield his baby’s head from the sun’s rays. 

With his torso on display, the father-of-two shielded his own head with the help of a taupe-coloured cap and a simple pair of shades. 

Alejandra meanwhile, displayed her washboard abs in a purple string bikini as she smiled happily for snaps with her husband and young son.

The new mum looked effortlessly glamorous with blonde tresses were styled into a tousled ‘do, while going make-up free for the sun-soaked afternoon with her family. 

According to HOLA!, the couple named their son Alexander as a sweet nod to mum-of-two Alejandra, given that the Spanish translation of Alexander is Alejandro. 

The Hollywood actor is also the proud father to Homer James Jigme, 19, who he shares with ex-wife Carey Lowell. 

Alejandra also has a six-year-old son Albert with ex-husband Govind Friedland.

Richard and Alejandra, who’s son Alexander was born in New York, revealed that they were expecting their first child together back in September.  

Alejandra shared a photo of herself and husband Gere meeting the Dalai Lama – who put his hand on her bump to bless the unborn child. Gere is a long-term friend of the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader.

A Buddhist himself, Gere is a prominent advocate for human rights in Tibet – something he says led to him being blacklisted in Hollywood. His support for the state also led to him being banned from entering China.
