There are now reports that former Morning Musume member Sayaka Ichii has gotten married for a second time. This time she got married to a hairdresser who is 37. I actually did not know who she was until I read about her Saturday evening. Ichii has also announced that she is pregnant with her 3rd child. She registered her marriage on July 24th before getting married yesterday. In May 2004, she got married to Naoki Yoshizawa, guitarist for the band “Ichii Sayaka in CUBIC-CROSS.” This is the band that Ichii formed after leaving Morning Musume but the couple divorced in May 2011. She has raised two daughters by herself since the divorce. In an interview, she said: “I’m still in the early stage of pregnancy. Including my daughters, we are all looking forward for the new family member who will be born next year. I am very happy. I would like to make a warm family that can overcome anything together, and that is full of smiles.” Ichii will continue her normal schedule while carefully taking her condition into consideration. The 28 year-old singer attended the opening of the 24th annual Tokyo International Film Festival in October of 2011. She was dressed in a stunning yellow dress. the quote is from http://www.tokyohive.com/2012/08/former-morning-musume-member-ichii-sayaka-announces-her-re-marriage-pregnancy/. Ichii is featured in this video of the Morning Musume members. Ichii now joins members such as Yuko Nakazawa and Kei Yasuda to get married in the last few years. Note: as of 2016, we can now add Natsumi Abe’s name to the list of former Morning Musume members to get married. Of the second generation members of this group (MM), I would probably say that Ichii is probably my favorite but it is a tough call. Congratulations to the beautiful singer and bikini model Sayaka Ichii!
