Nicolas Cage and his wife have chosen names for their baby.
The ‘Pig’ actor – who already has Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16, from a previous relationship – and his wife Riko Shibata are expecting their first child together and they plan to name the tot Akira Francesco if it’s a boy and Lennon Augie for a girl, in honor of the 58-year-old star’s late father, August Coppola, and his uncle, director Francis Ford Coppola.
Nicolas explained to the American magazine GQ: “Augie was my father’s nickname.
“And my uncle decided to change his name to Francesco.”
The ‘Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ star carries a photo of Riko’s ultrasound with him everywhere.
He said, “I think it’s so sweet. It’s like a little edamame. A little bean.”
Nicolas married Riko in Las Vegas in 2021, making her his fifth wife, and he explained that his frequent trips down the aisle are because he’s “a romantic.”

He gushed: “I’m a romantic, and when I’m in love, I want to give that person everything I can.
“It’s my expression of saying, ‘I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. And that’s it for me.”
The ‘Con Air’ actor insisted he would never marry again.
He swore, “I mean, it won’t happen again. That’s it. That’s it.”
Nicolas’ “best friend” is his cat, a Maine Coon named Merlin, and he admitted he sometimes mistakes his “loving” pet’s affections for his wife when he’s in bed.
He said: “He’s so kind and so loving. Sometimes he puts his arm around me when he’s sleeping, and I think that’s my wife, and I’m like, ‘Oh, Riko. And then it’s Merlin.
