Nicolas Cage is set to become a first-time grandfather - his son Weston's wife is pregnant. Danielle Cage told Closer Weekly magazine she was expecting a child during the Kasem Cares Foundation's First Annual Fundraiser in Beverly Hills on Saturday night (22Feb14).
She revealed, "It is a boy. Big boy, weighs a lot. I’m so excited! This wasn’t necessarily planned, but it is completely welcomed. We’re so happy to be giving birth eventually."
Weston Cage told the magazine that his father is thrilled about the news: "He was ecstatic. His reaction was one of pure joy and bliss. Family is very important to us.
"My father and I actually speak everyday and Danielle and I texted him the ultrasound photograph which was actually confirmation of what we thought."
Nicolas Cage's former handyman has been arrested on suspicion of stealing personal photos from the home of the movie star's ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton. Ricardo Orozco was taken into custody on 22 October (13) over accusations he took four computers and a box of pictures, allegedly including intimate images of Cage and Fulton, the mother of the actor's son, Weston.
Orozco has pleaded not guilty to a charge of felony burglary and is currently being held on $1 million (£666,667) bail, according to TMZ.com.
He is set to appear in court in Los Angeles on 22 November (13).
Nicolas Cage's son is officially divorced, two years after he walked down the aisle following a whirlwind romance. Rocker Weston Cage filed to end his six-month marriage to singer wife Nikki Williams in October, 2011.
The doomed union had been rocked by domestic disputes and arrests, which resulted in Weston heading to rehab for a 30-day treatment programme in July, 2011.
A judge has now finalised the dissolution of the marriage, with both parties being able to keep hold of their song catalogues, reports TMZ.com.
It would be easy to write 1000 words on just how silly so many of The Following's plot mechanisms happen to be. Why is there not an EFFING MANHUNT for an ESCAPED SERIAL KILLER the minute Hardy learns what's up with the transport switcheroo? Why would Olivia, an obviously smart if not ambition-blinded young woman aid the escape of SAID SERIAL KILLER, who we'll remember preys EXCLUSIVELY ON WOMEN? WHY DID BONE, WHOSE NAME MIGHT ACTUALLY BE "BO" BUT "BONE" SOUNDS MORE MENACING, INSTALL HIS HOSTAGE CAGES SO CLOSE TO THE BATHROOM?! Like I said…easy.
But you come to realize, watching this show as we (me and DISH Hopper guy, and maybe my editor Shaunna) have this past month and change, that narrative dumbness can't be considered one of The Following's flaws. I mean it IS a flaw — a big one, in fact. But it's so big, so much at the core of what this show seems to be doing (and wants to be doing) that you have to look to it as more DNA than defect. No less than you can fault a scorpion for stinging the toad, you can't snipe at a dumb TV show for being dumb.
'The Following' Recap: Everyone Who's Anyone is a Follower!
…Of course you can't tell a TV recap to not be petty and reductive, either. Because then what would we talk about? It was I think Ke$ha, or maybe Edgar Allen Poe, who said it best: "We r who we r."
After ditching her shower sex partners/Follower colleagues Paul and Jacob post-farmhouse siege, Emma split with little Joey for some sort of gang safe house, one run by a dude named Bo. Proclaiming himself to be "not a part of Joe's club," as his neck tattoos bulge and contort, Bo seems like a guy you don't want to mess with or annoy. Joey pays no attention to this and really riles Bo up when he finds a woman locked in a cage. "You're not supposed to go back there!" screams Bo, who is so tired of jerks going into his room.
Back in the most minimum-security maximum-security prison ever designed, Joe has somehow finagled a meeting with the warden and other prison officials to secure a transfer to another facility. One where he won't be so callously disrespected and abused by unstable alcoholics like Ryan Hardy. "Sounds cool!" the officials basically stamp on his papers, and send him on his merry way. Everyone deserves a second chance!
'The Following' Recap: Hardy's in the House!
Hardy, like us, thinks the whole move is bulls**t — a cover, maybe, for the warden's daughter's disappearance from college (Joe's former college) earlier that morning. And wouldn't you know it? It IS. Using the power of video editing, the warden helps affect Joe's escape with his lawyer Olivia.
SIDE: Wouldn't it be sort of sweet and reassuring to start every episode in Claire's house, Hardy showing up with a cup of tea for Claire as he says something cute, like "did I interrupt something?" Immediate smooching, ease of indie rock usage — just a pleasant way to kick off 42 minutes in which someone inevitably gets shivved and plot points are discussed as META-TEXTUALLY as possible.
Olivia seems surprisingly calm for someone driving with a man whose entire serial killer background revolves around attractive, defenseless women. #YOLO? (She's dead three minutes later.) In the most fun scene of the episode, Hardy is forced to listen in as Joe murders his lawyer. "Tell him," Joe asks Olivia to say to Hardy, "that Joe Carroll is killing me and it's because of you. It's all your fault." The whole thing is made all the worse by Weston sitting there with that "everything cool, bro?" look splashed across his face, as though he can't hear the woman dying on the phone just a few feet away from his ears. This show, man. With the murdering and everything.
It's all preamble, of course, for Hardy and Joe's big halfway-point-of-the-season confrontation. Joe has acquired two new Followers, David (nebbishy dude) and Louise (ice cold blonde), who get the upper hand on Hardy. But Joe doesn't want his "protagonist" dead. Especially not in a parking garage. He spells things out: "I spent nine years in a jail cell concocting this story, Ryan. And there is so much more to come."
As Joe gets away in his helicopter, Hardy vainly fires 5-6 shots after him. Oh Hardy — forever chasing a guy you won't truly catch until the end of the series, which based on this morning's early pickup for Season 2 may be some time from now. But Hardy's not put out; he's energized. "We'll find [those Followers]," Hardy tells Parker and Weston, "and we'll break them. We've got to start doing things a different way." Which to comic book movie-trained ears everywhere, means — time to be BATMAN. Hardy questions the injured David…right in his leg wound. DIG, BABY, DIG. And you know what? He gets his answers.
Headlights illuminate a creepy, Dragon Tattoo Swedish rape mansion-style gate. And soon the mansion behind them, where a crowd has gathered for the arrival of this black SUV. Joe steps out. And we realize — it's Follower HQ. Charles Xavier's School for the Gifted, absent mutant powers and plus switchblades and dog-eared Poe paperbacks. Emma gives Joe a great big hug. So wonderful to see you!
And then the kicker: Joey. Who has never actually seen his father in person before. "You're my dad." he surmises. "Yeah, I'm your dad." Niagara Falls. CREDITS.

The rocker filed documents on 27 October (11) to start divorce proceedings from Nikki Williams.
The 20 year old took to his Facebook.com page to reveal the news, writing, "WELL ITS OFFICAL (sic). THE DIVORCE IS SETTLED! ..................LADIES, DADDY IS BACK ahahahhahahaahh oh god! its on."
The pair wed in New Orleans in April (11).
The short-lived marriage has been a tumultuous union - the pair was arrested in July (11) following domestic disputes. Weston entered rehab for a 30-day treatment program following the bust-ups.
Fulton and her 20-year-old son will front new VH1 show Uncaged, which will follow their daily lives, and Weston is hoping the new project will show the public his true colours.
A source tells America's Star magazine, "Christina said the show will be like a modern-day Addams Family. Weston just wants to show the world he's not mentally ill."
Weston has had a tough 2011 so far - in July (11), the black metal rocker checked into rehab for a 30-day treatment programme and was twice arrested on suspicion of domestic violence following fights with his wife Nikki, who he married in April (11).
The rocker has enrolled on a 30-day treatment programme in an unknown facility, following his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence earlier this week (beg18Jul11).
The 20 year old was taken into police custody for the second time this month (Jul11) after an alleged confrontation with his wife, Nikki Williams, on Wednesday (20Jul11).
Weston, whose mum is actress Christina Fulton, admits the public perception of him has been tarnished but he's determined to get better.
He tells E! Online, "I am getting myself together, so I'm sorry about being mislabeled by people who don't know me, or realise that I come from a long line of creative and successful artists."
Weston also dismissed speculation he is envious of his songwriter partner's success and revealed plans for his own future goals.
He adds, "I would like to congratulate my multi-talented wife on her recent recording contract. I have always been supportive of her music. In no way would I ever be jealous of her successes, as I do not follow her preferred musical genre, and am personally working on a new solo album that I should have recorded a long time ago."
Police booked the rocker at 5am after receiving a report of a domestic incident. He was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for cuts before he was taken into custody.
As WENN went to press, Cage was still in custody.
His three-month marriage to Nikki Williams appeared to be over at the beginning of July (11) when he suggested he was ready to split from his wife in a Facebook.com rant.
The Eyes of Noctum star and his wife were booked on felony domestic violence charges over the Independence Day weekend (02-04Jul11) after complaints of a disturbance at their Los Angeles home.
Songwriter Williams reportedly attacked her husband and cut his arm with a bottle. Cage is alleged to have responded with force, prompting their arrest.
Cage, who posted bail hours after he was taken into custody, opened up about his tumultuous relationship in a lengthy Facebook post, in which he hinted Williams' "rage" was the root of their problems.
He wrote, "This message goes to Family, Friends and Nikki's loved ones especially... i also made this for Nikki to read when I bail her out of the s**t hole we got ourselves into. I PROMISE THAT I SHALL NOT REST UNTIL SHE IS OUT. I would even lie and say that i am a murderous wretch to get her out. i would do time in her honor even though i tried to save her life from her rage. I love you all and i love you Nikki.
"I don't know if being your husband is in the stars anymore for me. I have to think about it and really focus. I don't contain the ability that certain men do, the ability to abuse elders, women and children. I have three witnesses and video recording of me being calm."
Since that incident Williams has opened up about the drama, revealing she and Cage were undergoing counselling to save their marriage.
Weston's mother-in-law tells TMZ.com that Williams is "safe and away from him".
Cage and his wife Nikki Williams were both booked on felony domestic violence charges earlier this month (Jul11) after police were called to their Los Angeles home to investigate reports of a disturbance.
Cage initially took to his Facebook.com page after the bust-up and hinted the marriage was over, but Williams later insisted they were "working through" their issues and heading to rehab to battle their demons. She also revealed she is pregnant with their first child.
And the pair proved their commitment to each other by stepping out for a meal in West Hollywood earlier this week (begs11Jul11), along with Weston's mother Christina Fulton.
