In the world of Japanese entertainment, idols are often expected to keep their romantic lives, marriages, and parenthood a secret. This is reminiscent of situations we’ve seen in popular anime like “Oshi no Ko,” where the idol Hoshino Ai conceals her motherhood and two children, Aqua and Ruby, from the public eye.
And recently, real life seemed to imitate fiction in a surprising twist, much like the storyline of “Oshi no Ko.”
Real-Life Oshi no Ko Scenario! Idol Nagi Fujisaki Reveals She’s a Single Mother!
Real-Life “Oshi no Ko”? Idol Nagi Fujisaki, aged 23, and a member of the duo Saishu Mirai Shojo, displayed remarkable courage during a talk show appearance, which had an audience.
Let’s delve into her revelation:
“In reality, I’m a single mother. This is the first time I’m addressing this topic, so I can imagine that both the viewers and my fans might be in shock right now.”
The show’s primary focus was on sleep issues, and when asked about her sleep troubles, she made this confession, disclosing her status as a single mother.
One of the show’s hosts was taken aback and commented, “This isn’t something you usually hear on this program.” She went on to reveal that she has two children, one aged 3 and the other just one year old.
Towards the end, the 23-year-old idol stated, “There’s a babysitter taking care of them when I’m away.” Notably, after making this revelation, she wore a relieved expression and said, “I finally said it.”
This revelation quickly brought to mind Aka Akasaka’s manga “Oshi no Ko,” where an idol named Ai Hoshino is also a single mother of two children.
Let’s see how some Japanese people reacted:
“It’s like a real-life ‘Oshi no Ko.'”
“So, she has children! It’s incredible that she’s managing both motherhood and her idol career.”
“Being a single mother to a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old, while maintaining all that cuteness, is remarkable. She must be working really hard, unlike me…”
“They probably made this announcement to preempt any speculations.”
“I wonder who the father is; did they have the second child and then part ways?”
