Rie Hasegawa pregnant by boyfriend

30 Comments

Model and television personality Rie Hasegawa, 38, is three months pregnant by her 47-year-old boyfriend, a gossip magazine says.

Josei Seven magazine reports that Hasegawa and her man are expecting their first child. The information was provided by one of Hasegawa's acquaintances. The magazine also reports that Hasegawa and her lover, a representative director for a coffee chain management company, were spotted visiting a high-class jewelry store before hugging each other goodbye outside her apartment.

The magazine reports that the couple were first introduced back in 2010 when Hasegawa was still dating fellow actor Masaki Kanda, 64.

The couple are planning to get married in June, an acquaintance of Hasegawa said.

At her age, there is no need to get married. Why not be bold and be a single mother and marry the man later if that is in the cards? She's not young, she can support herself and I hope won't do the typical "dekichatta" crap like so many others.

Congrats to her and her boyfriend.

I think it's good that Rie didn't marry or get pregnant by Masaki Kanda.

Why be bold and be a single mother if they want to get married? Age has nothing to do with it. Maybe they don't want their child to be illegitimate? Some folk don't worry about stuff like that, others do.

Congrats on the baby.

This headline connects too many dots.

I think the reason to marry is for the child. If the mother is not married at birth, the child according to my understanding, will have a family register as a b#st#rd child perpetually. And in this society that ain't good.

Glad it was her boyfriend and not some random dude. Scary.

In the long history of Japanese celebrities, has one ever managed to get married first, THEN get knocked up?

Ol' Kanda-san must be gutted

I have nothing to do with this, honest.

Cleo, did you read my post? I said that if they want to get married, by all means. Just don't get married because she's pregnant. If that is the only reason, it isn't a good one. If they planned on getting married, great. I just don't get why every damn actress here who gets up the duff then marries when many of them have the money and means to be a single mother. More so when it seems like over half of them end up getting divorced.

tmarie - Yes, I did read your post. It isn't all about money. Lots of people these days, not only actresses, get married when a baby is on the way. You don't think it's a good reason. I don't think it's a good reason, either. But it isn't you or me getting married. They don't need our approval.

No, they don't. No one does. However, the point to come to a place like JT is to discuss and post our opinions. I am posting mine.

Cleo, do you really think dekichatta isn't about money? Sure love does factor into it - I hope - but in a lot of cases, it IS about money. Females for the most part can't afford to have a kid on their own. Hence, getting married when they find out they are up the duff.

In Feb she was shedding those croc tears about her ol' geezer not wanting to marry and then BAM. 2 months later,knocked up and planning to marry.Now that is taking the bull by the horns, if I'm being politically correct.

This kind of article may lead to a rash of pregnant women!

Now, if she'd got pregnant by a girlfriend -- that would be news!

SO WHAT!

another dekichatta kon...big deal

I forsee problems in their future.

Marriage due to pregnancy is a sign of unstable relationship and can result in divorce or worse if not treaded carefully.

While i'm glad they are having a child, they need to seriously consider their feelings for each other first. If they end up getting divorced they are making the child suffer as much as them and that isn't right

How do they know the boyfriend is the father?

Imagine that 64-year old Kanda is the Dad... He'll be in his 80s when the child goes to Uni....lol

Elderly parents don't always produce healthy children, the kids are often lovely, sensitive and intelligent, but often not very healthy. Of course this is not a general rule and shouldn't be a deterrent, just a risk factor.

Rokudenashi kids. The future of Japan's youth.
