Nicolas Cage became a father again at the age of 58. He and his 27-year-old artist wife welcomed their first child, daughter August Francesca Coppola Cage, into the world on Wednesday, September 7, in Los Angeles, a representative for the couple confirmed exclusively to People magazine.
“Nicholas and Rico are delighted to announce the birth of their daughter”says their representative. “Mother and daughter are doing well.”
The baby girl is Rico’s first child and Cage’s third, as he already fathers sons Kal-El, 16, and Weston, 31, from previous relationships.
In January, People magazine exclusively reported that the couple was expecting their first child.
“Parents-to-be are excited!their rep said at the time. Then in April, the actor shared the news that he was expecting a baby girl while promoting the film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
“I have a big news for everyone,” he said. “I’m having a baby girl.”
Earlier this year, the star told Access Hollywood that he was “extremely excited” to become a father again.
“My boys are grown and I miss going to the toy store. I miss singing lullabies and rocking”he said earlier this month. “I’m looking forward to getting back to it.”
The Oscar winner tied the knot with Rico in a “very small and intimate wedding at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas” on February 16 last year in honor of his late father’s birthday.
