18 Comments

Japanese speed-eating celebrity Natsuko "Gal" Sone has announced that she is pregnant.

Writing on her blog this week, Sone, 26, told fans that she is five months pregnant, in good health and feeling excited.

Sone married a TV director, nine years her senior, whom she met while working on a TV show. The couple were married in July of last year and in January of 2012 Sone told reporters, "I'd like to get pregnant as soon as possible," according to Nikkan Sports.

"It's hard to believe that I, who caused so much work for my mom, am also going to become a mother. Our family is going to get one person larger, so I'm delighted but I'm also aware that it's going to be hard work," she wrote.

Good luck to her. She's one of the only "talent" I can stomach...

She had better hope her kid does not eat like she does!

With all the stomach abuse she performs I won't be surprised if she ends up with stomach cancer or colon cancer later in life. I hope not though.

Congrats to her, hope that she has a happy and healthy baby, don't have any good morning jokes, but on a serious note, does this woman really keep all that food in her stomach or does she purge later? It just seems so strange a woman that tiny can eat like a Sumo wrestler. As cadmium said, it's stomach abuse and knowing women that were bulimic, it just seems strange, but I am not an expert on this.

A heavy drinker is more likely to get stomach cancer, or someone with untreated ulcers. In her case, half of the food passes further than the stomach, and if she does purge, her stomach doesn't have the time to soak all that food with acid.

Colon cancer is more likely in people who only use the toilet once a week, or if they have a bad mold culture in their bowels in place of healthy "yoghurt" type probiotic bacteria.

So i wouldn't worry about her. Good luck to her and the baby :)

Actually, I've heard that Gal Sone has an extremely high metabolism. She needs to eat almost constantly or she passes out. I'm worried that if her condition is genetic and is passed on to her baby, her husband will be out of money very quickly.

I wish her the best of luck and hope she and her baby will be healthy.

REMzzz - thanks for the info.

Colon cancer is more likely in people who only use the toilet once a week, or if they have a bad mold culture in their bowels in place of healthy "yoghurt" type probiotic bacteria.

Someone using the toilet only once a week has some other big problem. Anyway, I'm gonna get me some yoghurt today.

Good luck to her. She is one of the very few TV 'tarento's' who actually has a talent.

Is she a 'speed' eater? I've seen her on TV eating a lot but not necessarily the hot-dog-a-second-Kobayashi style speed eating. Maybe she's just a 'big' eater?

Her tummy is a bottomless pit. That baby should be soooo comfortable.lol Can't help but wonder what and how she eats these days. I love so-called "talentos" who balances life well, her statement implies that she's on the right track. Good luck.

Have authorities made sure she hasn't simply eaten her hubby? jk. Gotta luv such a cutie.

She isn't a speed eater like Kobayashi, she can just eat a lot. Her metabolism is incredible. I hope her husband can afford to feed her. As long as she keeps doing shows on TV where she is supposed to eat, I guess he won't have a problem. But after birth, he's going to have to make arrangements for food! Good luck to her!

They actually did a full medical check on her on one TV show to find out how and why she can do what she does....her stomach is longer than the average person's and stretches to fit more....also yes, her metabolism. When she eats her body temperature actually goes up several degrees to burn off the calories as she is eating. She can eat as little or as much as she wants. Amazing, really.

Wow, where can I get a stomach like that?
