On June 8, Maeda Atsuko appeared on the radio program 'TOKYO SPEAKEASY' and talked about the possibility of getting married again.
During the program, Maeda talked with actor Ikematsu Sosuke, whom she has been good friends with since co-starring in the drama 'Q10' in 2010. Ikematsu, who revealed that he has a desire to get married, asked Maeda, "Don't you ever think about remarriage?" to which she responded, "I don't think about it. Not right now. Not yet."
When Ikematsu mentioned how hard it must be to be a single mother, Maeda answered, "I often feel like I don't have enough time. I think that makes me restless everyday. The day goes by really fast. When I realize it, I'm only sleeping with him [her child]. And when I realize it, it's morning, and think, 'I need to go to daycare!'"
Upon hearing this, Ikematsu said, "Isn't it okay then? You're doing such a good job, so if you want to remarry, wouldn't it be okay to say, 'I want to remarry!'?"
Maeda agreed and said, "If there's someone that the little one [her son] has a lot of fun with together, then I want to get married again."
Maeda married actor Katsuji Ryo in July of 2018 and gave birth to their son in March of 2019. Earlier in April, she announced that she and Katsuji had divorced.
