Singer Koda Kumi has confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child!
Koda was rumored to be pregnant shortly after she revealed that she was getting married to BACK-ON vocalist and guitarist, KENJI03. She planned to make her official announcement after entering a more stable period of pregnancy, however, with all the confusion from the media, Koda decided to release the news today.
On her official website, Koda Kumi wrote:
I wanted to report this to my fans first, but I discussed it with my doctor and was told not to make an announcement just yet since I'm not in my stable period of pregnancy. This is why I wasn't able to report it to everyone at that time.
After the reports came out, a lot of people became confused. That wasn't my intention, and so I decided to make this announcement earlier than scheduled.
At this time, I have been gifted with a new life!
With this new life, I pray everyday that the three of us will enjoy life as a family.
I hope everyone will continue to watch over us with warm eyes.
As for the tour, I have my body to think about, so I am currently discussing it with my staff.
I should be able to make an announcement early next week, so I hope you will all wait for me."
Congratulations, Koda Kumi!
