MEG has given birth!

Singer and designer MEG shared some exciting news via her official Instagram account, she has given birth to her first child! The healthy baby girl was born in London, England. The exact date of birth was not revealed, but MEG did share that it was in late January. The father of the child is non-celebrity (assumed) British man. MEG joked that her child has unusually long fingers, a trait shared by MEG and her own mother. On the Instagram post MEG also shared a short message in English thanking her fans for their continued support. Once her physical health has improved MEG plans to return to Japan and slowly resume activities.

MEG’s last musical project was her 8th studio album CONTINUE, which was released on December 4th, 2013. After the release of CONTINUE MEG switched her attention to the fashion industry, focusing on her clothing line CAROLINA GLASER. In July 2016 she released a fashion book titled MEG FASHION DIARY.

この度、英国人パートナーとの間に第一子を授かり、一月下旬に出産しました事をご報告致します。 私と、そして私の母とも同じ、手足の指が異様に長い女の子です。遺伝、面白い。 プライベートな事なので、公式にお知らせする必要があるのか考えていたのですが、はじめての妊娠、検診や分娩方法も異なる英国での出産に対する不安や、体調の優れない日もあった為、できるだけ今までと変わらず過ごせることを優先して、極親しい友人だけにしか知らせておらず、それによって驚かれた方もいらっしゃるかと思いますが、今後また撮影やレコーディング等で帰国する際にも、何かと現場の方には調整をお願いする事もでてくるかと思い、出産を終え、落ち着いたこのタイミングでご報告させていただく事にしました。 ここ数ヶ月を振り返ってみると、あらゆる体調不良が「妊娠・出産あるある」であり、無理がきかなくなる中で、お茶や食事を選んだり、タブレットをのんだり病院に通ったり、自分がどうしたいというよりも次の命を育てる為の準備として、毎日の生活を整えていく自分の心境の変化も不思議な事として興味深く、ひとつひとつの出来事が戸惑いの連続で、子どものいる友人や母や父も同じ体験をしたのかなと改めて何度も思う、貴重な時間でした。 体調が復活して、娘が飛行機にも乗れるようになったら、また日本にも帰国して今まで通り仕事にも復帰する予定です。 これから長い付き合いとなる新しい家族と一緒に、ゆっくりとマイペースに、多くの人と一緒に笑って過ごしていけたらと思います。年賀状みたいな締めになってしまいましたが、今後とも、よろしくお願い致します。 MEG Dear friends and fans, I got a first baby and gave birth in London. After my physical condition has recovered, I'd like to return to work slowly with my new family. Thank you xxx 14th Feb 2017.

      “The healthy baby was conceived in London, England. The exact date of conception was not revealed, but MEG did share that it was in late January.”

      You might wanna fix this — conception is the act of conceiving/getting pregnant, she conceived (probably back in April, since nine months from then is January…) and later gave birth to her baby in London. :) She’ll be moving back to Japan to raise her (the baby’s a girl, lol).

      Anyway, so many congrats to her, I was shocked to hear about this. It’s so strange to have been enjoying her work since she was 27 and seeing her now with her first child. Also, queen of secret pregnancies.

        That made me laugh, imagine if she had actually shared the date of conception!

          Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure that Shiina Ringo said that she got pregnant “on the first try”, so that wouldn’t be the most TMI thing that a J-Pop artist has said!

            lmao Shiina Ringo would. Amazing.

      • Brain fart, thank you!
