Nicolas Cage, 57, has announced that he is expecting a child with his wife, who is 30 years his junior.

For the third time, NICOLAS CAGE is expecting a child.

Nicolas Cage, 57, and his wife Riko Shibata, 27, are expecting their first child, according to a representative for the actor.

The happy news comes just one year after the couple married in a small Las Vegas wedding ceremony.

“The soon-to-be parents are overjoyed!” the Hollywood actor’s representative exclaimed to People.

Nicolas is already the father of two children from previous marriages.

Weston, 31, is his oldest son and is the son of American actress Christina Fulton, while Kal-El, 16, is the son of Alice Kim.

Nicolas and Kim got married in 2004 and divorced in 2016.

Riko is the fifth woman to marry the FaceOff actor, who married last February in a “very small and intimate wedding” at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.

“It’s true, and we are very happy,” Nicolas said of their wedding last year.

When Nicolas was filming Prisoners of the Ghostland in Shiga, Japan, the two are said to have met through a group of mutual friends.

In July 2020, in a rare interview with Entertainment Tonight, the usually private film star discussed his relationship with Riko.

“When we first met in Japan, I thought she was stunning.

He explained that they had a lot in common.

“I asked her if she had any pets because she likes animals as well.”

“‘Yes, I have flying squirrels,’ she said.

“She had two sugar gliders… I figured that was it.

This might work.”

Nicolas revealed that he proposed to Riko via video call at the start of the pandemic, when the latter was still living in Kyoto, Japan, and the California native was based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The couple didn’t see each other for six months because of strict travel restrictions.

Upon her return to the United States, however, Nicolas wasted no time in moving forward with their wedding plans, opting to exchange vows in a hotel.

Nicolas previously married Erika Koike in 2019, but they were only married for four days after he claimed to have been inebriated when he agreed to marry her.

He alleges in his court filing for an annulment.
