Nicolas Cage's Wife Gives Birth to Kryptonian

From Oct 3, 1:41 PM (ET)

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage is a new father. His wife, Alice Kim Cage, gave birth Monday to a boy named Kal-el Coppola Cage, (thus proving that she has no say in the realationship) in New York City, said Cage's Los Angeles-based publicist, Annett Wolf. No other details were available.

(Jor-El and Lara) Kal-el as we all know, is Superman's Kryptonian birth name. His true parents being father Jor-El, and mother, Lara. The house of El was a historic and prestigious family on Krypton.

"They are healthy and happy and it's quite lovely," Wolf said by phone from New York. Cage is a nephew of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. The couple married in July 2004. It was the third marriage for Cage and the first for his new wife, who was 20 when they were wed. They met when Cage visited a Los Angeles restaurant where she was working as a waitress.

Naming his child after Superman is just the latest in Mr. Cage's obsession with letting people know he likes comic books. He has at one time or another been cast as The Green Goblin, John Constantine, Iron Man and even Superman himself, which thankfully never came to be.

Currently, Cage has finished shooting a movie version of Marvel's 70's Superhero/Demon Ghost Rider. His birth name is Nicolas Coppola, which he changed to Nick Cage inspired by 70's hero and Comic Blaxploitation hero Luke Cage, Power Man, hopefully they won't cast him for that movie.

Cage, 41, who won an Oscar for his role in "Leaving Las Vegas," has a son from a previous relationship. His screen credits also include "Lord of War," now in theaters, "Adaptation,""Honeymoon in Vegas" and "Moonstruck." He was previously married to Lisa Marie Presley and actress Patricia Arquette.

(Cage was set to play Superman for several years, when Tim Burton was directing the movie. The picture on the right depicts how bad that would have been)
