Nicolas Cage Is a Grandfather! Son Weston Welcomed Baby Boy, Lucian Augustus
Break out the cigars, ya’ll! Nicolas Cage can officially add the title of grandfather to his IMDb bio. The 50-year-old actor’s son, Weston Cage, recently welcomed a bouncing baby boy with wife Danielle just this week!
"Lucian Augustus Coppola Cage was born on July 1, 2014 at 3:14 p.m.," the couple’s rep tells Us Weekly. “He is the couple's first child.”
The musician and his wife announced their pregnancy news earlier this year, where they told Us just how excited the grandfather-to-be was. "My dad is ecstatic," Weston revealed. “He was elated immediately when he met Danielle.”
Weston was previously married to fellow singer Nikki Williams, but given their tumultuous relationship, Weston filed for divorce back in 2011, which was finalized in 2013. No wonder Nicolas was overjoyed that his 23-year-old happily re-married — especially with a baby on the way!
As for the newborn’s impressive name, the new parents revealed the deep meaning behind it. "Lucian is of Romanian descent, which is what I am," explained Danielle. "And Augustus is taken from Weston's grandfather."
Weston was quick to add, "His name is August," Weston piped in. "We honor him very much. He was of extreme brilliance. He was a genius." How sweet!
Weston is Nicolas’s first son from his previous relationship with Christina Fulton. Nicolas is also the father to 8-year-old, Kal-El with his current wife, Alice Kim. We’re sure little Lucian is going to have a fun time understanding that his uncle is about eight years older than him.
