Gone In 60 Seconds star Nicolas Cage has welcomed a new baby girl with his wife Riko, age 27.

The 58-year-old and his partner are “happy” with the bundle of joy, who was born on September 7, 2022.

A representative of the couple confirmed the wonderful news to People.

“Nicolas and Riko are happy to announce the birth of their daughter,” a rep said.

“Mother and daughter are doing fine.”

Nicolas Cage gushed over new baby before

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent actor had previously gushed over the fact he was going to be a dad again this year.

After the news came in January that the pair were expecting, a few months later he spoke about it on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

He said: “I’m gonna announce some big news for everyone.

“I am gonna have a little girl”.

He also told Access Hollywood he was “extremely excited” to be a father once again.

The baby girl is Nicolas Cage’s third child. He is already a proud dad to Kal-El, 16, and Weston, aged 31, from previous relationships.

“My boys are all grown up, and I miss going to the toy store,” he said a few weeks ago.

“I miss singing lullabies and rocking in the rocking chair,” “I’m looking forward to getting back to that.”

The lovebirds tied the knot in a “small and intimate” wedding ceremony at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. The day took place on February 16, 2021, which was the actor’s late father’s birthday.

The Oscar winner wed Riko after she walked down the aisle to Winter Song by Kiroro, her favorite song.

Cage, dressed in a snazzy tux, exchanged vows with Riko who was wearing a handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto.

They met in Japan more than a year before becoming husband and wife.
