Nicolas Cage is picking out baby names!

The Oscar winner and his wife, Riko Shibata, are expecting their first child — and the couple have prepared by choosing both a boy's name and a girl's name for their little one.

In a cover story for the April issue of GQ, the "Leaving Las Vegas" star, 58, revealed that he and Shibata have decided on the name Akira Francesco if they welcome a son and Lennon Augie if they have a daughter.

Cage also opened up about the sweet inspiration behind both monikers.

“Augie was my father’s nickname. And my uncle (Academy Award-winning director Francis Ford Coppola) has decided to change his name to Francesco,” he explained.

The "Con Air" star also proudly showed off an ultrasound image of his baby-on-the-way on his smartphone to GQ. “I think it’s so sweet. It’s like a little edamame. A little bean," he joked.

Cage and Shibata, who tied the knot in February 2021, confirmed in January to TODAY that they were expecting a new addition to the family.

“The parents-to-be are elated!” their spokesperson told People in a separate statement.

This will be Cage's third child. The actor, who's been married four times in the past, shares a son, Kal-El, 16, with ex-wife Alice Kim and another son, Weston, 31, with former partner Christina Fulton.
