Nicolas Cage Says His Fifth Marriage Is ‘It for Me’, Adding: ‘This Is Not Happening Again’

Riko Shibata seems to be Cage's true love.

Nicolas Cage has clear ideas on marriage.

The Hollywood actor, 58, is currently expecting his third child with his wife Riko Shibata. The couple got married whom in February 2021.

Shibata, 27, is Cage’s fifth wife. He previously married Patricia Arquette in April 1995 and their divorce was finalized in 2001; he and Lisa Marie Presley wed in August 2002 and filed for divorce three months later, though their divorce wasn’t finalized until May 2004; he married Alice Kim in 2004 and they finalized their divorce in 2016; he wed Erika Koike in March 2019 and was granted a divorce in June 2019.


During an interview with GQ the beloved actor said, “I am a romantic, and when I’m in love, I want to give that person everything I can. It’s my expression of saying, ‘I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.’ And this is it for me. I mean, this is not happening again. This is it. This is it,” he added.

Cage seems to be very happy with his new wife.

In January, Cage told the Los Angeles Times, “I’m really happily married. I know five is a lot, but I think I got it right this time.”

Cage and Shibata, an actress, tied the knot 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. “It’s true, and we are very happy,” he told PEOPLE in a statement at the time.

And what about the baby’s name? The National Treasure star says 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 shares.

After pulling up a two-month ultrasound on his phone, he adds, “I think it’s so sweet. It’s like a little edamame. A little bean.”
