On July 6, actress Kiritani Mirei (30) updated her Instagram account announcing the birth of her first child, a baby boy. Her husband, actor Miura Shohei (32) also made the announcement via his Instagram account.
Kiritani wrote, "I am very sorry to be talking about my personal matters, but I gave birth to a baby boy the other day. Thankfully, both myself and baby are healthy." She expressed, "I am thankful that he was born healthily. From now on, we will do our best as a family."
Kiritani continued, "Right now, I really feel the preciousness of life. My heart aches from the heavy rain damage. I am praying from the bottom of my heart that the damages won't get any worse."
Miura similarly stated, "Right now, we live in unprecedented times with lots of sad news around the world. I hope that things don't get any worse."
The two deepened their relationship after co-starring in Fuji TV's drama 'Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto' in 2016 and tied the knot in July of 2018. Earlier in February, Kiritani announced that she was expecting her first baby.
