    Miki Ando is now mother of a baby girl!

    http://zasshi.news.yahoo.co.jp/artic...8-bjournal-ent


    Miki was on TV tonight, and said a baby girl was born in April. Also announced that 2013-14 season is going to be her final competitive season. She started training again in May.
    If she is able to compete at Sochi, Miki will be the very first 'mother' single skater to compete at the Olympic Games!

    BIG CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    News Miki Ando had a baby in April!!!

    I was just on Facebook, and my Ukrainian friend posted a link to this story on the website of the Japanese edition of Vogue (Thanks Ira!)

    http://health-beauty.vogue.co.jp/archives/1145

    The story is in Japanese, but it is easily enough translated.

    Apparently Miki had the baby in April, but only announced it in a TV interview today. Here is a link to the video on YouTube (Again, thanks to Ira): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_F-d8kAjKSI

    Unfortunately, there is no English translation on the video, but there are some lovely shots of Miki and the baby towards the end (roughly around the 5 minute mark)

    Well, at least that would explain why we haven't heard anything from Miki in the past year.

    Congratulations Miki! I hope you and the baby are both well, and I hope you enjoy Motherhood.

    I might assume that there might be a lack of caring about single motherhood at this point because the Japanese birthrate was so low as almost to be country damaging! there might still be conservative finger wagging though.

    Congrats to her!

    Ah, just noticed that deedee1 started a thread about Miki's baby while I was typing my message.

    So, could some of the Moderators please merge the 2 threads?

    Thank you

    Exactly my concern...J-media, especially nasty paparazzi will be crazy to follow her everywhere, since she has not disclose the name of baby's father.
    But boy, she was so beautiful in that interview. It's been a while I saw her such calm, peaceful and relaxed in front of TV cameras, actually. Mother ROCKS! Best of luck to Miki in the new season!

    Actually no, we don't. Though a tabloid reported a few months ago that she was living with Yasuharu Nanri.
    I read on twitter that she also plans to get married soon.
