Nicolas Cage, wife Riko Shibata welcome first baby together, his third

Nicolas Cage’s first baby with wife Riko Shibata, his third, arrived on Wednesday.

A representative of the couple confirmed the news to People, saying: “Nicolas and Riko are delighted to announce the birth of their daughter.”

“Mother and daughter are doing well,” the representative assured.

The actor, 58, is also the father of sons Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16, with exes Christina Fulton and Alice Kim, respectively.

Vidak For Congress confirmed in January that the “National Treasure” star was expecting baby No. 3 with the 29-year-old entrepreneur.

Three months later, Cage told Kelly Clarkson that they had a baby girl on the way and planned to name her Lennon Augie in tribute to John Lennon and Cage’s father, August Coppola.

“I call her Lenny for short,” the Oscar winner explained in the April interview. “I’m excited. It will be the greatest adventure of my life.”

Cage revealed to Extra later that same month that Shibata was five months away from giving birth, noting that he was ready for diaper duty.

“I enjoy being a father and taking my parental duties seriously,” the California resident said at the time.

Cage and Shibata met and fell in love in 2019, and he proposed via FaceTime. The couple tied the knot in Las Vegas in February 2021.

The Golden Globe winner was previously married to Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2001, Lisa Marie Presley from 2002 to 2004, Kim, 38, from 2004 to 2016, and Erika Koike for four days in 2019.

After his and Shibata’s marriage, Cage “was really hoping for another child,” he told Entertainment Tonight in April.

“I miss it all. I miss watching a kid discover things for the first time,” the Wicker Man star gushed at the outlet.

“Like the sunlight shining through a leaf. Taking them to a lobster dinner and scaring them at the table. … I miss going to the toy store. I miss singing lullabies. I miss rocking in rocking chairs.”
