Nicolas Cage 56, has announced his engagement to girlfriend Riko Shibata, 26, on brother Marc “The Cope” Coppola's radio show.
Cage was first seen out with new girlfriend Shibata in February of 2020. The pair were seen on a date in New Orleans and one month later seen out in public for a weekend in New York City together.
When asked by his brother, Monday August 24th, to talk about anything in his personal life that is exciting, Cage revealed that he is currently engaged! How did it happen during the pandemic? Over FaceTime!
She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan and I went back to Nevada and uhm I haven't seen her for 6 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.
What does the ring look like?!
I got her a black diamond engagement ring. Her favorite color is black so she wanted the black gold, and the black diamond. I customized and personalized it and I actually sent it to her Fedex.
When will the two be officially tying the knot?!
We don't have a date because of the world we're currently in but I'm very hopeful when I go to Croatia and then to Hungry, to finish the movie I can get into London, England safely and spend some time with her.
