Nicolas Cage & Wife Riko Shibata Expecting A Child Together, Actor To Be A Father For The Third Time
Nicolas Cage is going to be a father again!
A representative confirmed to People that the actor, 57, is expecting his first child with wife Riko Shibata, 27, after the two married in Las Vegas last year.
"The parents-to-be are elated!" the representative told the outlet of the Moonstruck star — who is already a dad to sons Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16 — and his bride.
The parents-to-be — who donned the cover of Flaunt magazine this October — tied the knot on Feb. 16 (the date honoring Cage's late father's birthday) of 2021 in a "very small and intimate wedding at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas."
"It's true, and we are very happy," the Ghost Rider star told the outlet at the time. Cage and Shibata met while the star was filming Prisoners of the Ghostland in Shiga, Japan.

The news of a baby comes as Cage had a bit of a rocky 2021. As OK! previously reported, the Academy Award winner was thrown out of a bar in Las Vegas in September for reportedly "belligerent" behavior.
Cage was allegedly escorted out of Lawry’s Prime Rib located close to the infamous Las Vegas Strip after he had “been drinking expensive whiskey and shots of tequila” before becoming intoxicated.
An eye witness at the bar claimed the actor was staggering and shouting. One added they believed Cage was "a homeless man completely drunk and being rowdy" and that he was "shouting at people and trying to get into fights and then staff asked him to leave.”
"To our shock it turned out to be Nicolas Cage. He was completely smashed and was getting into a bit of a fight with the staff," the source revealed about the unsettling encounter. "He was in a really bad state and was walking around shoeless."
