Subscribe to Nicolas Cage alerts

Nicolas Cage has become a grandfather for the first time.

The 50-year-old actor's eldest son Weston Cage, 23, and his wife, Danielle Cage, welcomed a ''happy, healthy little boy'' into the world on Tuesday (01.07.14).

A spokesperson for the 'Gone in Sixty Seconds' star told ''Weston and Danielle are thrilled! The family is home and baby Cage is taking very well to his new environment. Lucian Augustus Coppola Cage was born on July 1, 2014 at 3:14 p.m.''

Nicolas also has an eight-year-old son, Kal-El, with his third wife Alice Kim.

The 'Con Air' actor was previously married to Lisa Marie Presley and Patricia Arquette.

Weston, whose mother is Christina Fulton, got married last year and previously admitted his father was ''ecstatic'' at the prospect of having a grandchild.

The musician added: ''He was elated immediately when he met Danielle.''

The couple revealed their newborn baby's name before his birth and explained their unusual choice.

Danielle said: ''Lucian is of Romanian descent, which is what I am. And Augustus is taken from Weston's grandfather.''

Weston added: ''His name is August. We honour him very much. He was of extreme brilliance. He was a genius.''

Nicolas previously admitted he loves being a father and said the experience had ''changed'' him.

He said: ''Any fatherhood is a gift. I've been blessed with both my sons, and they're both wonderful, rewarding experiences in different ways. I'm not the same person I was 15 years ago, but I wouldn't trade any of it for anything. It's been a blessing each and every time it has happened.''
