Former SDN48 member Kato Mami (32) gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, on October 3.
In a recent blog post, Kato announced, "I am full of gratitude that she was born safely to us. I was discharged the other day, and our lifestyle as a family of three has started."
She added, "I am still a new mom and might be at a loss as there are many things I'm not used to, but everyday, I feel happy to take care of my adorable daughter."
Finally, she expressed, "Thank you for all of your support and kind words from when I was pregnant. From now on, I will take on this huge responsibility as a mother to protect and raise my daughter with care. It would make me happy if you would watch over me warmly."
Kato was a salesperson at a department store, but pursuing her dream went on to become a first generation member of SDN48 on August 1, 2009. She graduated from the group in March of 2012. Last year, she announced that she had married a non-celebrity man.
