Singer, Kondo Masahiko (48), in an interview held on Sep 24th, blessed the birth of Akanishi Jin‘s first daughter. MATCHY, whose first son is already 4 years old, had this to say; “Even during hard times you can feel calmed just by looking at your child’s face”.
Akanishi (28) who got married to Kuroki Meisa back in February, is currently suspended from any form of activities by the agency. MATCHY encouraged him by saying; “There’s still things to fight for. If you have a wife, children and people around to give you strength and support then it’ll be ok if you work hard”.
Johnny’s senior talent Masahiko Kondo sent his congratulations to Jin Akanishi on September 24, reports Chunichi Sports.
Akanishi and his wife, actress Meisa Kuroki, had a baby girl on September 23. It has been reported during an interview in Tokyo, Kondo, who also has a 4-year-old son, said he had some advice for Akanishi about being a father.
“Kids are really cute. Just seeing them makes your worries go away. I don’t think you need to put more pressure on yourself, it’s okay to do things at your own pace.”
Kondo also said he would like to encourage Akanishi to keep doing what he wants to do, even after all the drama so far with leaving KAT-TUN, going to the USA, a cancelled concert tour, and a blank work schedule.
“I chose to start a racing career, and I’m still involved in it. You can get through it if you concentrate on your work and have faith in your fans and your supporters. Your wife and children are on your side, you’ll be alright.”
