To everyone who has been supporting me,October 13, 2021
To everyone involved,
This is a personal topic, but I’m blessed with a new life. Although the birth is expected in March of next year, as I’m in the second trimester ina stable condition, my body has started showing the growth of our baby, so we have decided to make the announcement.
I appreciate my manager and the people of my agency for their delicate care and adjustments, and to those who involved for their very thoughtful consideration.
I will continue thinking first of my condition and try to do my jobs the same way as I have been doing as possible.
To inform you of good news, I will get my mind and body in shape for the delivery, and my husband and I will pull together to take good care of our tiny, tiny new life.
Life has been hectic with a lot of things that we have never experienced, but we’d appreciate your continuous warm support.
Yui’s fans and her colleagues from the entertainment industry congratulated the couple after the announcement. She thanked everyone for warm wishes and support:
