The seiyuu couple Ayana Taketatsu and Yuki Kaji announced on Thursday the birth of their first child. They also shared photos of their baby holding their fingers on their respective social media accounts. Ayana followed up with a tweet stating that she’s now going to spend her days nurturing her newborn. The voice actress also said that she is still working on her recovery in order to return to work. The couple made their marriage public back in 2019 on Ayana’s 30th birthday (June 23).
Fans and fellow voice actors flooded the couple with congratulatory messages. Mitsuki Saiga (voice of Yelena), Kaji’s co-star in Attack on Titan, mentioned that she’s deeply moved that the cute Kaji is now a father. Meanwhile, Ayana’s co-star in K-On and fellow Houkago Tea Time band member Satomi Sato (voice of Ritsu Tainaka) is relieved that both mother and child are healthy.
