RIKO Shibata is the fifth wife of acclaimed actor Nicolas Cage.
Shibata and Cage were married in February of 2021.
Who is Riko Shibata?
Riko Shibata, who is 27, is the wife of movie star Nicolas Cage, who is 57.
It is her first marriage.
A state of Nevada marriage license obtained by the outlet shows that the couple got married on February 16 at the Vegas resort.
The couple is now expecting their first child together according to People magazine.
This will be Cage's third child as he already has two sons.
"The parents-to-be are elated!" a rep for Cage told People.
They tied the knot at the Wynn Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, according to the Daily Mail.
"The date was chosen to honor the birthday of the groom's late father," Cage's rep told People.
"The bride wore a handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto that required three layers."
The rep added: "After the wedding, the happy couple was joined for a small celebration attended by Nicolas' ex-wife, Alice (who he remains very good friends with) and their son Kal," his rep says.
Cage was married to Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016.
Shibata took her husband’s last name – and now is legally Riko Cage.
She is 30 years younger than Cage and is also younger than his oldest son, Weston.
They reportedly met in her home country of Japan.
What did Cage say about her?
Cage announced the engagement on his brother Marc Coppola's radio show in 2020.
“She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan, and I went back to Nevada and I haven't seen her for six months," he said.
“We're really happy together and we're really excited to spend that time together so I finally just said 'Look, I wanna marry you' and we got engaged on FaceTime."
