- Nicolas Cage is becoming a father again
- Cage reveals he will have a baby girl
- The actor reveals who inspired her name
Nicolas Cage already had two sons from previous relationships, but he will now soon have his first daughter! In January, the Oscar winner and his wife announced their great happiness that they are expecting, and now, Cage has shared the name of his unborn daughter on a talk show.
Cage's daughter will be named after two men
Cage recently appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show, where he revealed that he and 27-year-old Riko Shibata are expecting a baby girl. The actor, who can soon be seen in the upcoming movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, shared that his father, August Coppola, inspired part of his daughter's name.
Coppola isn't her only namesake though! That's because as Cage revealed, music legend John Lennon of The Beatles has also inspired his daughter's double name. "Her name will be Lennon Augie. Augie after my father," Cage explained. He also has a cute nickname in mind for his baby girl! "And I'll be sure to call her Lennie," he shared.
Cage and 27-year-old Shibata began dating in 2020, marking Cage's fifth marriage after several relationships. The couple tied the knot in February of the following year, and Lennon Augie will be their first child together. We think the name and its hidden homage are great, and wish all the best to the new parents-to-be!
