Nicolas Cage’s first baby with wife Riko Shibata, his third, arrived on Wednesday.
A rep for the couple confirmed the news to People, saying, “Nicolas and Riko are happy to announce the birth of their daughter.”
“Mother and daughter are doing fine,” the rep assured.
The actor, 58, is also the father of sons Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16, with exes Christina Fulton and Alice Kim, respectively.
Page Six 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 as a tribute to John Lennon and Cage’s father, August Coppola.
“I’ll call her Lenny for short,” the Oscar winner explained in the April interview. “I’m thrilled. It’s going to be the biggest 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 native said at the time.
Cage and Shibata met and fell in love in 2019, and he proposed over FaceTime. The pair tied the knot in February 2021 in Las Vegas.
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.
Following his and Shibata’s nuptials, Cage was “really hoping for another child,” he told Entertainment Tonight in April.
“I miss it all. I miss watching a child discover things for the first time,” the “Wicker Man” star gushed to the outlet.
“The way the sunlight shines through a leaf. Taking them to have a lobster dinner and have them freak out at the table. … I miss going to the toy store. I miss singing lullabies. I miss rocking in rocking chairs.”
