Nicolas Cage revealed the sex and name of the baby he is expecting with his wife, Riko Shibata.

“I am gonna have a little girl,” the “Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” star said on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” Thursday.

Cage shared that his daughter’s name will be Lennon Augie in tribute to John Lennon and the actor’s father, August Coppola.

“I’ll call her Lenny for short,” he continued. “I’m thrilled. It’s going to be the biggest adventure of my life.”

The “Leaving Las Vegas” actor explained that “Across the Universe” by The Beatles is his “favorite song ever written,” so Lennon seemed like the right fit.

He did not announce Shibata’s due date.

Cage, 57, and Shibata, 27, confirmed to Page Six in January that they were expecting.

“The parents-to-be are elated!” his publicist told People at the time.

The couple tied the knot in Las Vegas at the Wynn Hotel in February 2021.

“We are very happy,” Cage said of their nuptials at the time.

The Oscar winner met his fifth wife in Shiga, Japan, and they began dating shortly after his four-day marriage to Erika Koike was annulled in June 2019.

Cage proposed to Shibata via FaceTime and FedExed over her custom black-gold and black-diamond engagement ring to her in Japan.

“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, and 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,” he said on his brother Marc Coppola’s radio show in August 2020.

The “National Treasure” star has two sons from previous relationships: Weston, 31, and Kal-El, 16.

He was previously married to Patricia Arquette from 1995 to 2001, Lisa Marie Presley from 2002 to 2004 and Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016.
