Actress Eriko Sato announces she is married and pregnant


Actress Eriko Sato, 33, is married and four months pregnant.

Sato made the announcement on her blog on Jan 31, which is "Beloved Wives Day" or "Aisai" (a play on the words for for 1 and 31).

Sato wrote: “From today my family name is not Sato anymore. I have officially married my fiance and a new spirit exists in my womb.”

Her husband, 45, is a salaryman who works with kabuki actor Ebizo Ichikawa, Sato's ex-boyfriend, NTV reported Monday. Last February, Ichikawa introduced him on his blog as “the boyfriend of my ex” with his photo.

“I am worried about my unstable condition but I will take care of myself and continue making efforts in my career," Sato wrote.

Which came first? The chicken or the egg?

She's married a guy that works with her ex-boyfriend? Sounds like a bit of a love triangle to me.

She was really hot in "Cutie Honey". Wish her the best.

Sounds a little like both the ex and the new husband liked her, but only the husband called 'Shotgun' ;P

That said, best of luck to the three of them (mother, father and little bub yet to come).

What, no fax. If you ask me it was a whoopsie and only one stepped up to the plate afterwards. Best of luck.

She's beautiful like most Japanese women are. Whoever had set with her I am sure he is the luckiest man.

Why is the guy's name secret? He was mentioned in the blog with a photo, and yet this story does'T disclose his name.

If my wife or girlfriend came up to me and said, "A new spirit exists in my womb,” I'm calling a priest for an exorcist or something and I'm not gettin anywhere near that womb!

Hope the ex has a good working r/ship with the husband. Workplace love triangles are the worst.
