Supermen, Princes and Parises

I've always wondered: Can a man who married the ex-wife of Michael Jackson be sane? The answer, of course, should be an immediate 'no way!' - but Nicholas Cage always seemed so down to earth.

Well, he's not.

Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage's wife of 14 months gave birth on Monday to the couple's first child together, a son they named Kal-el -- a moniker recognised by comic book fans as the birth name of Superman.

The child's delivery in New York City and his full name, Kal-el Coppola Cage, were confirmed by the actor's publicist, Annett Wolf, who said of the family, "They are healthy and happy and it's quite lovely."


Excuse me? Speaky English?
I mean - Kal-El?!

Still, of course, there's no doubt that Michael is the crazier of Lisa Marie's ex-husbands, having named his sons Prince Michael I and Prince Michael II, respectively (to which the Purple One, if I may quote him again, responded in his 1998 song Fascination by stating the obvious: "So-called King gives birth to so-called Prince").

Incidentally, Paris Latsis, recently dumped by fiancée Paris Hilton, need not despair: Jacko's daughter is called - that's right - Paris.
