How Old Are His Kids?

The Oscar winner welcomed his eldest son, Weston, in December 1990 with actress Christina Fulton. Weston is now 31. As far as his younger son, Nicolas and his third wife, Alice Kim, welcomed now-16-year-old Kal-El in October 2005. He was reportedly named after the DC character, Superman.

What’s His Relationship History?

Nicolas has tied the knot four times. He first married Patricia Arquette, but they ultimately parted ways and divorced in 2001. The star later found love with Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie, and they called it quits in 2004. Nicolas went on to marry Alice and they finalized their divorce in 2016.

By 2019, he was ready to walk down the aisle again with Erika Koike. They exchanged their vows in Las Vegas and their marriage lasted only four days before he filed for an annulment. They divorced soon after.

The Ghost Rider actor tied the knot with Riko at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas on February 16, 2021, choosing that date to honor his late father’s birthday.
