On June 1, actress Shaku Yumiko (37) revealed her maternity photos via her official blog.
Shaku shared that she and her husband had a maternity photo shoot on that day, "I actually wanted to do it during my 8th month, but I was at risk for preterm birth, so I was instructed to rest at home and not go out..."
She continued to express, "I become lonely when I think about how my days with this belly are coming to an end. So I'm very glad to have taken photos today that would remind me of these precious days." She then reflected on the photo shoot, "To experience fetal movements during a photo shoot was completely different from my usual photo shoots, so it was a strange feeling."
She concluded, "I'm sad to be graduating pregnancy, but I am excited to become a new mom."
The actress is due at the end of the month.
