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?

True! That's what I intend to say. Children born out of wedlock are discriminated on many aspects (officially and unofficially). Japan should be more open like European countries.

I thought Japan is already opened in that kind of social matter if we considering how remarkable their social nowadays.* like living together, gay, okama, and etc*.

That's why I still doubt on them on holding that strong social value among them especially youngsters~

Japanese people aren't really cool with living together before marriage, gay people, etc.

It's more like it's tolerable or entertaining as long as it's not someone I know.

The society is open , but i mean that the goverment is not open at all. You can see that, they still have kids registered under family register, out-casting the kids born out of wedlock, no rules for homo-marriage yet etc. That's why Japanese people now are frustrated about the government.
