Nicolas Cage has become a grandfather.

The 50-year-old actor's son Weston, 23, and his wife Danielle welcomed a baby boy - their first child together - into the world on Tuesday (01.07.14) and have named him Lucian Augustus Coppola Cage.

A representative for the couple told Us Magazine: ''Lucian Augustus Coppola Cage was born on July 1, 2014 at 3:14 p.m''

Weston - whose mother is Nicolas' ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton - and Danielle announced their happy news earlier this year and admitted the 'Joe' star was looking forward to becoming a grandfather for the first time.

Weston said previously: ''My dad is ecstatic. He was elated immediately when he met Danielle.''

The couple also picked out the tiny tot's name prior to his birth and explained in February where they had got the idea for the cute moniker from.

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.''

Meanwhile, Nicolas - who has been married three times in the past - also has eight-year-old son Kal-El with his current wife Alice Kim.
