Since 1981, Nicolas Cage has been a fixture on the Hollywood circuit, with blockbuster movies such as Face/Off and National Treasure in his very extensive acting resume. The actor, whose real name is Nicolas Kim Coppola, has received many accolades throughout his four decades in the industry, including a much-coveted Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Golden Globe Award.
Aside from multiple awards, Cage can now add another thing to his long list of achievements: a new baby. Yes, you read that right! Congratulations are in order as Nicolas Cage and his wife, Riko Shibata, are expecting their first child together. The new baby on the way will be the 58-year old actor’s third child.
For now, Cage and his reps have yet to share other details about the pregnancy, such as the baby’s sex and due date. Given everything happening in the world, let’s just hope the baby and mother will be healthy and safe throughout their pregnancy.
As per People, the Ghost Rider star tied the knot with his now-wife, Shibata, last February 2021. The couple got hitched during a “very small and intimate wedding at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas” on February 16, which is the actor’s late father’s birthday. Their nuptials mark Cage’s fifth marriage, so let’s hope things work out for him this time around.
Aside from getting hitched in Vegas, the couple sparked a lot of talks because of their vast age gap. As previously mentioned, Cage is now 58 years old, while his lady love is 30 years his junior at 27 years old.
This endeavor isn’t Cage’s first rodeo in the world of fatherhood. Cage is already a father to 31-year old Weston and 16-year old Kal-El. To add to this, he is also a grandfather to two boys through his eldest child, Weston. However, the new baby is Shibata’s first pregnancy.
Aside from having a new baby on the way, Cage has a lot on his plate. According to IMDB.com, the actor has an untitled Amazon Studios project in the works. He also has five film projects that are in post-production.
With that said, Cage will be a very busy man in the next few months. With baby number three coming soon, things will be more colorful for the actor and his family. Congratulations once again!
