Richard Gere was sick for several weeks before admitting himself to a hospital for treatment, and he is now on the mend.

According to Deadline, the actor was diagnosed with pneumonia while on vacation with his family in the Mexican resort of Nuevo Vallarta.

The star had acquired a cough, prompting him to attend the hospital, where it was revealed that he was suffering from pneumonia. On the other hand, he was freed after spending the night there.

As Richard was in Mexico celebrating his wife Alejandra Silva’s 40th birthday, Alejandra posted an update on Richard’s health on Instagram.

She disclosed in the post that he wasn’t the only family member who had been sick for “weeks.” Richard was in Mexico to help his wife Alejandra Silva celebrate her 40th birthday.

The Spanish publicist uploaded a photo of herself on the beach with the actor’s two children – their two sons were born in 2019 and 2020, respectively – and said everyone was gratefully on the mend. The snapshot was accompanied by a statement stating that everyone was okay.

“Thank you all for the birthday greetings,” she added before adding, “After almost three weeks of everyone in our family being unwell, today, finally, I feel much better!”

“Thank you for all the love, I give it back to you!” she said. In exchange, she was bombarded with kind wishes from her ardent followers.

Alejandra returned to Instagram on Sunday to update Richard’s condition after announcing in her first Instagram post on Friday that he had been admitted to the hospital.

“I woke up this morning and saw the news and all of your sweet and worried comments; he is mending,” she wrote in the caption of a photo she posted on social media. Richard is wearing a mask in the picture, and the pair is walking with one of their boys.

She said, “He is doing much better today than yesterday!” The worst of it is already over! We’d want to thank everyone who has taken the time to give us encouraging thoughts.”
