Koda Kumi confirms her pregnancy

Singer Koda Kumi has confirmed that she is pregnant with her first child!

Koda was rumored to be pregnant shortly after she revealed that she was getting married to BACK-ON vocalist and guitarist, KENJI03. She planned to make her official announcement after entering a more stable period of pregnancy, however, with all the confusion from the media, Koda decided to release the news today.

On her official website, Koda Kumi wrote:

Hello everyone!

I wanted to report this to my fans first, but I discussed it with my doctor and was told not to make an announcement just yet since I’m not in my stable period of pregnancy. This is why I wasn’t able to report it to everyone at that time.

After the reports came out, a lot of people became confused. That wasn’t my intention, and so I decided to make this announcement earlier than scheduled.

At this time, I have been gifted with a new life!

With this new life, I pray everyday that the three of us will enjoy life as a family.

I hope everyone will continue to watch over us with warm eyes.

As for the tour, I have my body to think about, so I am currently discussing it with my staff.

I should be able to make an announcement early next week, so I hope you will all wait for me.

Congratulations, Koda Kumi!

Also, can we not make fun of people who get shotgun weddings?

Congrats!! I hope it becomes stable...but seriously why couldn't she just say she was pregnant before? lol I don't understand the whole lie than truth thing!

Because there's a high chance of miscarriage in the first trimester. Most people wait to tell others about their pregnancy after the first trimester is over.

yeah but she still knew she was "pregnant" so to speak I don't know why she could've just said. it's in the very early stages but if everything goes well, blah blah..etc. that's what I mean

There's a lady who is close to my family. Her 2nd pregnancy didn't go as well as her first one. Her 2nd was premature and he needed to stay in the hospital for the first couple of months because he was so weak. She didn't announce the news of her birth to her relative for fear that he couldn't survive. People's decision are based on ther own different thoughts and circumstances.

If I was her, I wouldn't let anyone know except maybe my Mom. I'm the type to keep my worry to myself.

Of course but she told her friend who had a big mouth and decided to tell everyone she is pregnant and that left kuu no choice to say it.

spoken like a true teenager... her own health and family comes before fans in this case. even normal people don't tell their family until after the first trimester
aaalove 16th-Dec-2011 07:50 pm (UTC)
I'm way past being a teenager, I was just saying it as a passing thought of why deny it? yes then the whole world knows if she comes out and says it and God forbid anything goes wrong but don't deny it, I just don't see why she could've said I wish to keep my family life private. simple as that.

I hate the idea that people are entitled to know what's happening with her body at every moment, either because she's a celebrity or because she's pregnant. She's still at the higher risk of miscarriage, why would she want the extra worry of telling the media/having everyone discussing it if she happened to miscarry? While she was grieving over the loss herself? Not only do I think pregnant women have the right to tell people whatever the hell they want, I completely understand why you wouldn't tell people even if it meant lying to them. Better than have people asking you about the baby and every time having to explain you lost it, if the worst should happen.

I didn't mean to say it to sound like an asshole, I'm just saying people already said she was pregnant and she denied it...why deny it? obviously it's a horrible thing to have a miscarriage, i didn't mean it the way everyone is taking this.

She wasn't the one to deny it, Avex was.

She never said she wasn't pregnant, she just chose not to disclose it until she was forced to.
aaalove 16th-Dec-2011 09:00 pm (UTC)
OH! well than that changes everything!!! Wow, the article I read said it was her~ should've just checked tokyohive to begin with! I always forget about that site..thanks of clearing it up!!
retahdedtim 16th-Dec-2011 07:02 pm (UTC)
She probably didn't announce it because having a miscarriage is a horrible enough emotional blow without the whole world watching and knowing you just had one.
aaalove 16th-Dec-2011 07:44 pm (UTC)
of course it is horrible, I didn't mean it to sound as if it wasn't I was just saying just explain the situation instead of denying it when she knew she was even if it was incredibly early on, like I said explain the situation.
coika 16th-Dec-2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
C'mon that isn't the real reason and we all know it. She was most likely wanting to just keep it under wraps until she was ready, and therefore lied about it.
aaalove 16th-Dec-2011 09:01 pm (UTC)
whoops! nvm! she didn't deny it~avex did! Read an oopsie article~tokyohive cleared it up! But still she got a big mouthed friend!!
coika 16th-Dec-2011 11:58 pm (UTC)
Friend might not have known she was outing her TBH.

There are some very sleazy tactics used here; I wouldn't dismiss that the journalist might have lied to said friend and said the announcement had already been made and just wanted a close opinion on the steps she's taking to prepare for her baby.

Or what the friend said was supposed to be passing comments in private only, but the person told ended up leaking the story.

she denied it even though it was obvious because of her previous miscarriage. the media glams things up and next thing you know no receipts
