Nakao Akiyoshi & Naka Riisa to get married; expecting first child in autumn
The fax statement mentioned that the couple first met in the 2009 movie "Toki wo kakeru shoujo" and worked together again in the NHK drama "Tsurugame Jousanin". They started dating after the drama wrapped up filming last October. In the statement, they said that although they first met four years ago, they had been good friends before they began dating. The couple said that they believe that they would be able to build a happy family with each other and thus decided to get married. They are not living together at the moment and plans for the wedding are still undecided.

This comes as a total shocker, really. Although Nakao and Naka were reported to have had an overnight date in November last year, it came as a surprise to see them get married and with a baby on the way. When the news came out last year, they denied being an item but it seems like they were already dating back then. Although the dekichatta-kon is pretty unexpected, this is still good news after all so congratulations to the couple!
