Nicolas Cage attends the TIFF premiere of his newest film only a few days after giving birth to his daughter
According to PEOPLE, the Oscar-winning actor, 58, and his wife Riko, 27, welcomed a daughter called August Francesca Coppola Cage later in the week.
After August Francesca was born on Wednesday, Cage traveled for the Toronto International Film Festival’s 2022 Butcher’s Crossing premiere.
Cage asserts at PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly’s video and photo studio at TIFF on Friday, “I honestly just got off the plane and flew here. It was agreed that even though my baby hadn’t already arrived, I wouldn’t be going anyhow if she had.
He went on to say that as soon as his daughter had arrived, he had left for the airport. “I wouldn’t be here,” the National Treasure star asserts, “but I made my word, and I’m here honoring my pledge, but I’m excited to get back to my wife and my daughter.”
Baby August is Riko’s first child and Cage’s third child; Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16, are children from former relationships. Cage claims that he is eager to continue producing films for his young daughter.
I want to make some movies that will make her grin and laugh, Cage declares categorically. Show her some more animated movies, like Croods 1 and Croods 2.
The actor also said his kids won’t be keeping an eye on Butcher’s Crossing any time soon. Who is it? He mocks his most recent Western film. Probably never. It’s challenging to watch. Cage acknowledged to PEOPLE in April that he has always put his family before his business.
In the beginning… At the time, he argued that the real Nick Cage always wanted to spend time with his children. There isn’t a Nick Cage who values his family more than his career.
