Actor, Hiro Mizushima, known for his role as Souji Tendou / Kamen Rider Kabuto, and his wife Ayaka are expecting a child.
A comment with the couple’s name on the website says, “We, as a married couple, have been able to accept a child into our lives.”
Ayaka, who is 4 months into her pregnancy, has announced that she will be on hiatus until around Spring 2015 and probably will not appear at this year’s Kohaku Uta Gasssen, the annual New Year’s Eve Japanese music show aired on NHK Network.
Ayaka, who has Basedow’s Disease, states:
“Even after my comeback, I have been keeping a steady pace in my work, at the end of last year my doctor has told me that I have been making good progress on my medical results. That was a good sign for me, and I started to have more discussions about having a child in my life with my husband, and now I have been blessed with good fortune. A tiny life has entered our lives, I pray that they are growing healthily in my tummy.”
The two secretly married in February of 2009 and announced their marriage to the public in April that same year.
Hiro Mizushima starred in the 2006 series Kamen Rider Kabuto and Ayaka is a popular singer in Japan and sang the theme song for the game Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7.
