On August 1, former Morning Musume member Fujimoto Miki (30) updated her official blog and announced the birth of her second child.
Fujimoto began the blog by saying, "I have an announcement for everyone," and reported, "On August 1, at 1:32 am, I safely gave birth to a 3,152 gram (6 lb 15 oz) baby girl." She reflected, "As expected, childbirth was very painful... but above all, I am filled with happiness."
Fujimoto's husband, comedian Shoji Tomoharu (39) was able to witness the birth of their child. "I am grateful for my husband and son who welcomed the new baby together," she expressed, "I am also thankful for everyone who secretly supported me during childbirth."
The couple married back in July of 2009. They welcomed their first child, a son, in March of 2012.
