Popular freelance TV presenter Mari Watanabe, 41, announced this week that she had married Fuji TV producer Ichiro Takai, 45. She said they got married last week -- three months after their first date.
Watanabe held a press conference to announce her marriage at Fuji, together with comedian Beat Takeshi, 61, who appears on the same medical advice program. She said of her husband: “If I had not met him, I would not have married anyone. I just feel happy when we are together at home dining and watching TV.”
Kitano also joked about her marriage, saying, “I didn't know she had been planning to get married. My effort to hit on her was a waste of time!”
Watanabe insisted she is not pregnant and that a date for the wedding reception has not yet been decided.© Japan Today
