posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Vocalist and guitarist of band Flower Flower and former solo singer YUI announced on Friday that she has married a man outside of the show business industry, and is currently pregnant.
As a message to her fans, she wrote,
My partner is someone outside of the industry. In addition, I have been blessed with a new life inside of my stomach. I think there were quite a few people who were worried about me, but I couldn't find the chance to convey my current condition. I want to say thank you as well to the band members who cared about me even though I couldn't perform as I wanted due to illness... I still have worries about my health, but I'd like to do my best while being careful of my condition. I'd be very happy if everyone would watch over and protect me with warm eyes.
The 28-year old singer suffers from panic disorder.
YUI performed the fifth ending theme, "Life" and the fifth opening theme, "Rolling Star" for the Bleach anime, and the first opening theme, "again" for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. She took a hiatus from music in 2012, stating that she wanted to try something different. She joined the band Flower Flower in 2013 for less high-profile concerts.
