EXILE TAKAHIRO & Emi Takei Welcome Healthy Baby Girl

Actress Emi Takei and singer TAKAHIRO from pop group EXILE have welcomed their first child, a baby girl, natalie reports.

In a joint press release from their respective offices, the couple wrote:

Everyone, thank for your overwhelmingly kind support. Thanks to you, we were able to safely welcome a brand new life to this world. She is a very healthy, energetic baby girl. To everyone who has supported us, we are extremely thankful to you all. From now on, we hope you can keep watching over us and cheering us on as we build a happy family together.

In September of last year, the Japanese media was caught off-guard by the announcement that the two had gotten married and that Takei was already three months pregnant.

TAKAHIRO and Takei met while working on NTV drama “Senryokugai Sousakan” back in 2014, and while there were reports that they were in a relationship in April 2015, both parties denied it.

Welcome to the world!
