On January 16, actor Miyazawa Hio (29) announced through his fan club site that he is dating actress Kuroshima Yuina (26) and they are expecting their first child together.
In a letter addressed to his fans and persons concerned, Miyazawa wrote, "I'm sorry to trouble you with my personal affairs as the world goes through difficult times. At this time, I would like to announce that I am expecting a baby with Kuroshima Yuina-san, whom I have been dating for some time."
Miyazawa revealed that he and Kuroshima started living together last spring. "Gradually, we began to envision a future with children so we are happy to bring this announcement," he expressed.
He added, "We are not fussing over registering our marriage. At the moment, we do not plan on doing so. However, we will discuss and decide on the future as necessary. As lifelong parters and family, we will walk together while supporting each other."
Similarly, Kuroshima posted on Instagram stories, "At this time, I would like to announce that I am expecting a baby with Miyazawa Hio-san, whom I have been dating for some time."
She confessed, "I wasn't sure whether or not I should deliver the news to everybody, but if there is a possibility of it going public without my permission, I felt it would be better that I make the announcement in my own words." She continued, "As for my work, I plan to do as much as possible while considering my health. Please continue to support me."
