Richard Gere and his wife Alejandra are expecting their second child together. The Pretty Woman actor and his 36-year-old wife welcomed their first child together in February 2019.

It is believed she is three months pregnant, according to Spanish publication Hola!

The couple will welcome their second child in the springtime. Both Richard and Alejandra have children from previous relationships.

Richard and his former wife share 19-year-old son Homer and Alejandra has a six-year-old son called Albert with her former husband Govind Freidland.

The couple have yet to publicly comment on the news but we’re sure their baby announcement will be just as wonderful as their last one.

Alejandra posted a snap of her and husband Richard Gere with the Dalai Lama. He blessed the business woman’s stomach during the special meeting.

The pair dated for four years before saying ‘I do’ at the 70-year-old’s ranch just outside of New York. Richard and Alejandro married in an Indian-inspired ceremony in April, 2018.

The couple welcomed a baby boy earlier this year.

Huge congratulations to Richard and Alejandra.

Congratulations to the couple!



Sunday is a day for relaxing. We’re sure most of the country has spent the day at the beach, sunbathing in the park, or enjoying a barbecue at home.

Don’t get us wrong, we love the sunny weather, but we must admit that it can leave us feeling exhausted.

After spending the day working on tanning our pasty pale legs, all we want to do is curl up on the sofa with a glass of wine and a classic rom-com on TV.

Thankfully, RTÉ 1 have got our Sunday night movie covered as they are streaming one of Julia Roberts’ best movies tonight.

This 1990 classic has a strong female lead, the dreamy love interest, a kickass soundtrack and a complicated love story, what more could you ask for?

Pretty Woman is one of the most iconic romantic comedies and there’s no doubt that we’ll be tuning in tonight.

The film follows the complicated love story of a millionaire and a prostitute. Gere’s character decides to hire prostitute Vivian, who is the perfect partner to accompany him to lavish work events. Much to his surprise, he starts to develop feelings for her. The pair come from completely different worlds, but as the saying goes, opposites attract.

Pretty Woman has a stellar cast with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere taking on the lead roles. It also stars Jason Alexander, Laura San Giacomo, Ralph Bellamy and Hector Elizondo.

You can watch Pretty Woman on RTÉ1 tonight at 9:30 pm.



Actor Harrison Ford has spoken for the first time about his daughter Georgia's fight against epilepsy while attending a charity Gala. 

Speaking at the FACES (Find a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures) event in New York, the actor was quick to praise his 26-year-old daughter for fighting against the illness in an emotional interview.

"When you have a loved one who suffers from this disease, it can be devastating," the actor said to New York Daily News.

"You know how it affects their lives, their future, their opportunities and you want desperately to find mitigation. You want to find a way that they can live a comfortable and effective life."

"I admire a lot of things about her. I admire her perseverance, her talent, her strength. She's my hero. I love her."

The 73-year-old revealed that it took years before a diagnosis was made after a series of serious seizures. 

"A few years later, she had another a big one, this one on a beach in Malibu, where a Hollywood director found her, luckily.

"I said to myself, this is Los Angeles, we have some of the best doctors in the world, they must know what's wrong with her. But nothing was diagnosed as epilepsy."

"Dr Orinn Devinskly, who is a dear friend, made the diagnosis: epilepsy.

"He prescribed the right medication and therapy; she has not had a seizure in eight years."

So you don’t own a toy lightsaber, you always just assumed that Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker were love interests and you have never referred to your own unshaven state as being Chewbacca-esque.

If you agree to all the above then we can safely assume that you are not looking forward to Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens. But you HAVE heard about it, right? 

Whether you are a diehard fan living for December 17 or just wondering what all the fuss is about, here is why you should most definitely be excited about the new Star Wars.  

1. It’s a real sequel

Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the new reboot is that is takes places thirty years after the events of the original trilogy. Having had to sit through three rather divisive prequels, we finally get to find out what happens to our original heroes.

2. The Cast

Apart from the return of Harrison Ford as our favourite ‘love to hate’ cocky pilot, Han Solo, the new films boast a load of fresh talent. And with fresh talent comes new characters.

Some of the top-billed names include Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis and our very own Domhnall Gleeson.

3. The Costumes

The costumes from the original picture have become pretty iconic (those Princess Leia buns anyone?) so you can be sure that a load of effort has been put into the design of the costumes in the new films.

We can’t wait to figure out which ones will make it into cinematic history – and, of course, which one we will attempt to recreate next Halloween.

4. The Villains

Forget Darth, the new film comes with a whole new band of villians.

There is Domhnall Gleeson playing an evil general-like character and Andy Serkis playing Supreme Leader Snoke, a sort of omnipresent overlord.

But the villain that has most fans losing their minds is Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, pictured above with his CRAZY cross-shaped lightsaber.

5. There are a lot more coming

Disney Studios has announced that it is releasing not only a new trilogy but a new spin-off franchise of films. That means that there will probably be a new Star Wars film out every year for the foreseeable future.

You might as well jump on the bandwagon.

6. The trailer is pretty AMAZING

Okay, we are gonna officially stop talking and let the pretty epic trailer do all the talking. 




We always fancied ourselves as rather adapt polo players.

Something about all that champagne and Pimm’s and jolly-good fun seems to appeal hugely.

It’s a little Pretty Woman when she wears the amazing polka-dot dress and on-fleek Nineties white gloves; it’s a lot Prince Harry racing around on a noble steed giving us the eye during occasional breaks in play.

And it seems that polo events are not just for royalty (cinematic, aristocratic or otherwise).

Because at the All Ireland Polo Club on the grounds of the Phoenix Park, there are plenty of good-natured equine larks to be had.

Case in point: the glamorous Pink Polo In The Park event, which was successfully held last week.

Glamorous guests, all of whom were supporting Breast Cancer Ireland, comprised of the likes of Michelle Harrison, Norah Casey, Leigh Arnold, Roisin Tierney Crowe, and Gavin Duffy.

Watching the polo from the comfort of a marquee. they were treated to on-pitch action from a talented Irish squad who played against Team Canada… and we’re glad to report that Ireland emerged victorious in a fast-paced show of horsemanship.

The day had began with a pink prosecco reception followed by a sumptuous three-course luncheon prepared and served by the team from the swish Tinakilly House.

TV presenters and stylist entrepreneurs Darren Kennedy and Cathy O’Connor judged the keenly-fought best dressed competition, which was eventually won by Naomi Mulderry and Eoin Likely – both of whom received prizes from Harvey Nichols, Louis Copeland and Ireland’s Blue Book


Lovely lunch with Claire Bear! Thank you #pinkpolointhepark #breastcancerireland

In the second match of the day, Team Breast Cancer Ireland narrowly beat Team Nissan with a score of 6-5 and afterwards CEO of Nissan Ireland, James McCarthy, presented beautiful Galway Crystal trophies to both teams.

During the afternoon, guests furthermore enjoyed a Veuve Clicquot champagne reception and once all the excitement in the park was over, teams and guests were brought to Residence on St Stephen's Green in a cavalcade of Nissan cars for the after-party celebrations.

Certainly, it was a fitting end to the summer polo season and raised much-needed funds for the charity. And in the meantime, roll on the 2016 season, we say! Now, where did we leave our white gloves…

Today marked the 25th anniversary of Pretty Woman's release, and the film is still a firm favourite with women everywhere.

The modern-day (well, 90s) Cinderella tale might not be a perfect love story, but in reality, what love story ever is?

Richard Gere was of course the film's Prince Charming but it's Julia Roberts that makes us want to watch this movie time and time again. Vivian – what a lady!

Here are just a few of the times she won us over…

1. When she had a no-bullsh*t attitude towards safe sex
A buffet of safety.


2. When she sang her heart out to Prince while taking a bath
She is basically our spirit animal in this scene…


3. When she gave that snobby Rodeo Drive shop assistant a piece of her mind


4. When she was blatantly honest about how much she loved the opera
"She said she liked it better than Pirates of Penzance."


5. Anytime she did her giant, infectious laugh
Gets us every time!


6. When she was honest about what she wanted
Stick to your guns, Viv.


7. And basically the entire last scene
The two of them are so goddamn cute!
