On February 19, actress Ishibashi Natsumi (28) updated her Instagram account announcing that she had a baby last year.
Ishibashi wrote, "I wondered if I am a proper human being to be making an announcement like this during this difficult time, but it's not something that I should hide, so I would like to announce this to everybody. It's a private matter, but I had a baby last year."
Ishibashi shared that she and her partner decided not to get married, and that she is raising her baby with her family. "I know people have their own opinions, but to me, marriage does not equal children, and children does not equal to marriage. By mutual agreement, we have not married. I am raising this baby together with my mom and other family members who will pour their love into this baby," she explained.
Ishibashi expressed, '"Everyday is hard, but I am happy. It's scary how happy I am." Congratulations!
