Former Morning Musume member Ai Kago is pregnant with her 2nd child.
The idol announced the pregnancy on September 23 during a live performance in Tokyo.
"My husband cried tears of joy when I told him. The gender isn't known yet. Either would be good," she said. Her 4-year-old daughter is also excited to have a sibling, Kago said.
The pregnancy comes a little over a month after Kago married a 38-year-old man who owns a company in the beauty industry. Her second child is with her second husband.
The expected due date for Kago's second child is some time during next spring. A specific due date, and by proxy the date of conception, was not given.
Kago's first child is named Minami. She was born in June of 2012. The child's father is Haruhiko Ando, Kago's first husband, who she married in December of 2011 and divorced in June of 2015.
Kago's entertainment activities will be continuing as normal.
