Ueto Aya announces her first pregnancy

Ueto Aya announced through her agency on 12 April that she is currently pregnant with her first child. In the statement, Ueto commented that she is very happy about the impending arrival of her new family member and expressed thanks to everyone around her for the support during this period as she continues to work during her pregnancy. However, she did not give any details of her pregnancy or her expected due date. Currently, Ueto is in the midst of filming for the TV Asahi Spring 2015 drama "I'm Home" which is expected to end in June. Her work plans after that will be decided depending on her condition. According to insiders, Ueto came to know about her pregnancy after the filming of "I'm Home" began in mid March so she is expected to be about three months' pregnant now. As she has a heavy role as the heroine i.e. Kimura Takuya's wife in the drama, care has been taken to ensure that the filming doesn't affect her condition adversely.

Ueto got married to EXILE's leader HIRO who is also the president of talent agency LDH on 14 Sep 2012 which was her 27th birthday. She had expressed her wish to have a child before she turns 30 this year. As recent as during the production press conference of "I'm Home" held on 6 April, she was asked by the reporters if she would prefer a boy or girl for her first child and the reply was that it didn't matter as long the child is healthy. Ueto used to dream of being a nursery teacher when she was in her teens but due to her entry into showbiz, she had to give that up. Nonetheless, she went ahead to study and obtain the childcare licence in 2008 which was seen as a show of her interest in taking care of children.

I was really surprised by your consistency to posts things related to J dramas. A lot of people tend to drop their blog about J drama and/because they've move on to the K dramas and began to stop posting about J drama. I begin to watch J drama 3 years ago and I'm loving it. I really appreciate your blog and your consistency to post about J dramas and things related to it. Hope you can keep your work in the future. Thankyou. お疲れ様でした
