Premiere of His New Movie Back in January, PEOPLE exclusively confirmed that Cage and Shibata are expecting their first child together. "The parents-to-be are elated!" a rep said at the time. The Oscar winner tied the knot with Shibata, his fifth wife, during a "very small and intimate wedding at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas" on Feb. 16 of last year, honoring his late father's birthday. Cage and Shibata, who is also an actress, made their red-carpet debut last July at the premiere of his film Pig. Taylor Hill/FilmMagic Last month, Cage revealed in the April issue of GQ that he and Shibata have already landed on their child's moniker. The National Treasure star said they decided on Akira Francesco for a boy and Lennon Augie for a girl. "Augie was my father's nickname. And my uncle [Francis Ford Coppola] has decided to change his name to Francesco," he shared. After pulling up a two-month ultrasound on his phone, he added, "I think it's so sweet. It's like a little edamame. A little bean."
