LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Oscar-winning actor
Nicolas Cage’s wife of 14 months gave birth on Monday to the couple’s first child together, a son they named Kal-el — a moniker recognized by comic book fans as the birth name of Superman.
The child’s delivery in New York City and his full name, Kal-el Coppola Cage, were confirmed by the actor’s publicist, Annett Wolf, who said of the family, “They are healthy and happy and it’s quite lovely.”
No further details were released, including how the actor and his wife, Alice Kim Cage, were inspired to borrow from the mythology of Superman in naming their child. Nicolas Cage gives Superman’s birth name to son – Yahoo! News
