On August 21, WagakkiBand shared the wonderful news that vocalist Suzuhana Yuko and koto player Ibukuro Kiyoshi are married and are expecting their first child. The couple was hesitant to share this news with the world at first but as the “most challenging part of the pregnancy” passed, the announcement was made.
You can read the words of the members through our translations.
From Suzuhana Yuko and Ibukuro Kiyoshi
We got married on March 4, 2022, but at that time refrained from announcing details about our private affairs. As we have passed the most challenging part of the pregnancy, we are pleased to announce that we are expecting our first child.
We met right before WagakkiBand formed and began band activities. Through the years we deepened our relationship while working together and eventually decided to become a family and live together.
Our everyday life is peaceful and full of laughter and we hope to build a loving family in the future.
Both of us want to keep growing, sharing good music, and creating a fun space where we can share many precious moments with our fans of all ages, who are like family.
We thank you for your continued support.
