Spotted on the AP news wire:
Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage is a new father.
His wife, Alice Kim Cage, gave birth Monday to a boy, Kal-el Coppola Cage, in New York City, said Cage’s Los Angeles-based publicist, Annett Wolf.
Now, I've joined in mocking a lot of recent celebrity baby names lately (Apple?!?!), but Kal-El -- (Superman's Kryptonian name in case you aren't versed in geekspeak) shoot, that's so uncool that it becomes cool. Nic Cage may have been all over the place in movie quality roles lately but hey, I like that name. Kal-El Cage — the kid is named after two comic book heroes! (If you didn't know, Nic Cage, born Nick Coppola, named himself after the black '70s superhero Luke Cage.) Sweet Christmas!
