Voice actor Showtaro Morikubo announced his status as "Papa Kubo" on the "The BAY LINE" radio program on Friday. The Yowamushi Pedal and Naruto actor followed up the announcement on Twitter, and although he didn't specify what month his child was born, he reaffirmed that he's a dad now.
The 43-year-old voice actor married a "regular woman" in 2014 but otherwise kept the details about his wife private.
He married fellow voice actress Yū Asakawa in 2007. Asakawa announced in 2009 that the couple had divorced due to differences in their personalities.
Morikubo will play Koji Kabuto in Mazinger Z: Infinity, and he will reprise his role as Yūsuke Makishima in Yowamushi Pedal Glory Line series that will debut next month. He is also starring in next season's second season of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. as Uryoku Chōno. His other anime roles include Naruto's Shikamaru, Hakuōki's Sōji and Love Stage!!'s Kojirō. Morikubo has also voiced characters and provided theme songs in several installments of the Rockman (Megaman) video game and anime franchise.
