Nicolas Cage has become a first time grandfather after his son, Weston Cage, welcomed a new baby boy with his wife Danielle.
According to E! News, a rep for the new grandpa said, “Weston and Danielle are thrilled! The family is home and baby Cage is taking very well to his new environment.”
The rep also confirmed the baby was born July 1 and his name is Lucian Augustus Coppola Cage. The couple also revealed they chose the name Lucian because of Danielle’s Romanian descent and Augustus for Weston’s grandfather. Weston and Danielle have been married since last year.
The New York Daily News reported Lucian is the couple's first child together and Weston, who is a musician and is currently in the middle of his work on a solo album, tweeted about his happiness on Friday.
“Fatherhood, being a husband and being an artist…What the h—l was I thinking long ago? Glad to live for this #NewDay.”
Weston had reportedly told Us Weekly previously that upon hearing he would be a grandfather, Nicolas Cage was “ecstatic.”
Weston is Cage’s son with Christina Fulton. Cage is currently married to Alice Kim and they have an 8-year-old son named Kal-El.
