AAA member Ito Chiaki has announced her marriage to a non-celebrity man. †They are also expecting their first child. Due to this, Ito has decided to graduate from the group.†
Ito's husband is a businessman in his 40's. The couple met through a mutual acquaintance a few years ago, began dating last summer, and registered their marriage last month. Ito is currently three months pregnant. On this situation, she commented, "When I†found out about the baby, I†felt a happiness I've never felt before. I wanted to take care of this life carefully."†
Ito is scheduled to graduate in late March. While reflecting on her time in AAA, she expressed, "With my remaining time in AAA, I hope to deliver whatever I have left with all my might and feelings of gratitude."†
The members of AAA also posted a message on their official website. "When we heard this news from Chiaki, we were happy, but surprised at the same time. After many discussions with the members and staff, Nishijima Takahiro, Uno Misako, Urata†Nagoya, Hidaka Mitsuhiro, Atae Shinjiro, Sueyoshi Shuta, and the AAA staff have all decided to fully support the path Chiaki has chosen," they said, and continued, "AAA will work even harder than before, so please continue to support AAA and Ito Chiaki as before."
