Rock singer Daigo, 37, and actress Keiko Kitagawa, 29, have announced their marriage. The pair attended a packed news conference in Tokyo on Monday afternoon.
At the news conference, there were 45 TV cameras and 210 reporters. A gold folding screen and three different colors of roses decorated the stage.
Daigo, who is the lead singer for Breakerz and the grandson of former Prime Minister Noboru Takeshita, said he proposed to Kitagawa last August right after he finished taking part in NTV's "24-Hour Television 38" 100-kilometer charity marathon, Sankei Shimbun reported.
After the event, Daigo said he handed Kitagawa a box that had an engagement ring in it and a note saying "KSK" which stands for "Kekkon Shite Kudasai" (Please marry me). Kitagawa said she instantly understood what he meant by "KSK" and got really nervous.
The couple announced their engagement in October.
Monday was the second anniversary of the beginning of their relationship which began when they started filming a TV show in 2014. They had first met in 2011 when they both appeared in the TV drama "LADY - Last Crime Profiling."
Since Kitagawa said that her favorite number is 1, they registered their marriage at the ward office at 11:11 a.m. on Jan 11.© Japan Today
