Shinohara Ryoko announces her pregnancy with second child

On August 31st, it was announced that actress Shinohara Ryoko (38) was pregnant with her second child!

According to multiple sources, she is currently threee months pregnant, and is expected to give birth sometime next spring. Shinohara has been busily promoting the movie, “Unfair the answer“, but will go on maternity leave at the end of the year. Movie officials say that Shinohara revealed her pregnancy to people close to her at the end of August.

Shinohara married actor Ichimura Masachika (62) in December 2005. In May 2008, they welcomed their first child, and since then, Shinohara mainly focused on shooting CMs while taking care of her son. After continuously receiving casting offers, however, she made her return as an actress in September 2009 with the 2-hour special drama, “Hataraku Gon!“.

Last May, Shinohara starred in her first drama series in three years titled, “Tsuki no Koibito~Moon Lovers~“. Then, in October, she landed the lead role in “Ogon no Buta Kaikei Kansa Cho Tokubetsu Chosaka“.

Currently, Shinohara plays a role in six CMs, and is at the peak of her career. Some fans have mused over how this would affect her future career, but many others expressed that she would be able to return confidently after the birth of her child.

Congratulations to Shinohara and her family!
