According to the announcement, Yoshimura gave birth to a baby boy on August 1st at 2:34 pm. The baby is healthy and weighed 3,376 grams (7 lbs. 7 oz.) at the time of birth.
Through her agency’s official website, Yoshimura expressed, “Yay! Today, a baby boy was born from a girl’s body. It’s a mysterious feeling. It was difficult, but there is no other happiness like this. Thank you, everyone, thank you!”
After receiving the good news, fellow PUFFY member Onuki Ami wrote on her blog, “He’s such a cute baby with a fair complexion… Even from an objective point of view, he’s so cute!” In response, Yoshimura stated, “Because Ami-chan was always there, I was encouraged.”
Onuki’s husband, GLAY vocalist TERU also tweeted, “Yunko! Congratulations!” He continued, “Even if your first child is born, please don’t lose your funkiness lol. It will become even more hectic lol, but for someone like me who likes lively places, I’m looking forward to it. Your life as a mother will now begin, so do your best!”
Yoshimura married a non-celebrity man back in 2009. On April 1st of this year, she announced, “It’s sudden, but I will become a mother this summer,” and commented, “It’s my first time so I’m a bit uneasy, but I live everyday to the fullest with a lot to look forward to.”
