Nicolas Cage (58) and his wife Riko Shibata (28) are expecting a daughter. The couple will call the girl Lennon Augie, the actor revealed on Thursday in ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ on American television.

“I’m having a little girl”

“I’m having a little girl,” said Nicolas, who also immediately revealed the name of the child. By her first name, Lennon Augie will be named after John Lennon, as the actor calls the Beatles song “Across The Universe” his “favorite song ever written.” Nicolas first heard it when he was only 4 years old, but remembers being “frozen, paralyzed by the music,” he said. Augie has gone to August Coppola, Nicolas’ father.

Lennon Augie is the first daughter for Nicolas, who already has two sons from previous relationships. The baby is Riko’s first child. Nicolas and Rico got married on February 16 last year, on the birthday of Nicolas’ deceased father. The two met in Japan when the actor was working on the film Prisoners of the Ghostland.
