Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish, 28, and his girlfriend, former wrestling world champion Seiko Yamamoto, 34, are expecting a baby and plan to marry later in the year after the MLB baseball season is over.
Both Darvish and Yamamoto have been married once before. Sports Nippon reported Monday that the couple, who publicly announced their relationship last November, do not plan to hold a wedding ceremony.
Yamamoto is said to be six months pregnant, Sports Nippon reported.
Last Nov 18, Darvish himself uploaded a picture of himself and Yamamoto embracing, looking at the camera, on Twitter. In a message to his fans, Darvish said: “We have talked about it, and decided that we want to date openly. Please support us.”
On Monday morning, Darvish said on his official blog that, “We have been blessed with a new life.”© Japan Today
