Kaori Iida is one of those former Morning Musume members that I have not yet written about on this magazine. Today via her blog, she announced that she is now pregnant with her 3rd child. Kaori also revealed that her son rubs her belly while talking to the baby in a quiet voice. Iida also said that while she is involved with child-rearing, she thinks that this pregnancy will be fast. She wants to spend this time with what she calls “great care” and encouraged people to watch over her. Kaori Iida is due to give birth sometime in the fall of 2017.

In July 2007, she married former 7HOUSE vocalist Kenji. The couple had their first child, a son back in January 2008. He would unfortunately die 6 months later due to chronic renal failure. Kenji and Iida would then have their 2nd son in May 2013. Congratulations to Kaori Iida and Kenji as they celebrate this new chapter of their lives!

The group was known as Morning Musume from 1997 until the end of 2013. Since then, they have been known as Morning Musume 14, Morning Musume 15, Morning Musume 16, and now Morning Musume 17. Here is Kaori Iida talking about playing video games one night and then she is given an English lesson. There’s a good chance you may laugh after seeing this! The video was recorded back in 2002 when Iida was still a member of Morning Musume. She chooses one of the easiest English phrases ever!
