Richard Gere is doing “much better,” according to his wife, Alejandra Gere.
She shared a brief update on Instagram Tuesday after news broke over the weekend that the “Pretty Woman” star was hospitalized with pneumonia while on a family vacation in Mexico.
“Richard is feeling much better, we are all feeling much better, ‘almost’ back to normal,” she wrote in the caption for a photo of her, Gere, and their two sons together.
The activist shared that their youngest son, James, also had pneumonia, and she and eldest son Alexander had sinusitis and ear infections.
She also shared some details about their trip, writing, “We came to Mexico to continue with our conservation project south of Puerto Vallarta, we all came sick from NY… now we are all well and almost fully recovered.”

According to reports, Gere checked himself into a hospital after a cough he had developed worsened while in Mexico. He was eventually diagnosed with pneumonia and stayed overnight in the hospital.
