After doing some sightseeing from the tower, the family climbed into a boat and enjoyed a trip along the vast lake.

They later disembarked the water vessel and headed to dry land as they took in the picturesque location.

The Runaway Bride actor even grabbed a camera and began snapping pictures of his wife, son and another member of their party. 

The family’s boat trip comes just days after they previously enjoyed a day on the water during a boat ride alongside other pals and Alejandra’s son, Albert, six, from her previous relationship with Govind Friedland.

Richard ensured he was beach ready as he strolled along shirtless in a pair of bright blue swim shorts before boarding the private vessel.

While Alejandra showcased her toned abs and golden tan as she wandered along the sand in a black bikini that featured a halterneck top and briefs and she donned shades. 

The Spanish publicist tied her caramel flecked locks up in a relaxed bun and she appeared to go make-up free to allow the sunshine to kiss her skin.

Proving he was every inch the true gentleman, the Pretty Woman star carried all of the group’s belongings and ensured they did not get wet as he lifted up the bags above his head as he waded through the surf to hop on the water taxi.

The group appeared at ease as they bobbed along the crystal clear ocean as they took in the views whilst kicking back and relaxing on the bow of the boat.

Once they finished their day at sea and arrived back on land, the couple showcased their affection as they held hands and walked along the marina with little Albert in tow.

The Gere family holiday comes after Richard and his wife welcomed a new baby earlier this year.

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.

Alejandro met her current husband while divorcing her first husband Govind, the son of mining magnate Robert Friedland.

Previously, Richard was married to Carey Lowell from 2002, before splitting 14 years later with the couple sharing son Homer James, 19.

He had beforehand been married to first wife Cindy Crawford for four years between 1991 and 1995.

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.

Their baby news comes after screen icon Richard tied the knot with Alejandra in April, after four years together.

Gere met wife Alejandra back in 2014 at a luxury Italian boutique hotel Alejandra bought with her former husband and was managing at the time.
