We are currently in the midst of a celebrity baby boom. Ever since 2020, COVID-19, and the subsequent quarantine, it seems like half of Hollywood has announced they were expecting. And the trend continues as we approach two full years in the pandemic.
Stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Kylie Jenner, and Katherine Schwarzenegger all shared that they were pregnant in 2021. As we await the arrival of their little ones, 2022 is already starting out strong with even more celebrity baby news: Nicolas Cage and his wife Riko Shibata just announced they're expecting their first child together.

Nicolas Cage is going to be a father again! On January 6, the National Treasure star and his wife Riko Shibata confirmed they are expecting to People. The couple's rep added that "the parents-to-be are elated!"
This will be Cage's third child. He also has sons Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16, from previous relationships with Christina Fulton and Alice Kim, respectively. The new arrival will be Shibata's first child. The two tied the knot back in February of 2021 in an intimate Las Vegas ceremony. Congrats to the soon-to-be new parents!
