Who is Riko Shibata?
Riko Shibata, who is 26, is the wife of movie star Nicolas Cage.
It is her first marriage.
They tied the knot at the Wynn Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas, according to the Daily Mail.
A state of Nevada marriage license obtained by the outlet shows that the couple got married on February 16 at the Vegas resort.
“The date was chosen to honor the birthday of the groom’s late father,” Cage’s rep told People.

“The bride wore a handmade Japanese Bridal Kimono from Kyoto that required three layers.”
The rep added: “After the wedding, the happy couple was joined for a small celebration attended by Nicolas’ ex-wife, Alice (who he remains very good friends with) and their son Kal,” his rep says.
Cage was married to Alice Kim from 2004 to 2016.
Shibata took her husband’s last name – and now is legally Riko Cage.
