Actress Hoshino Mari (34) gave birth to a 2,980 gram (6 lb 9 oz) baby girl on July 30 at a hospital in Tokyo. Her husband, TBS announcer Takano Takahiro (35) made the announcement via FAX to several media outlets.
Takano said, "My wife, Hoshino Mari, is having her fill of happiness after childbirth. As someone's parent, I hope to grow even more and work even harder. Please continue to support TBS announcer Takano Takahiro."
The couple tied the knot back in 2011. Hoshino announced her pregnancy through her official blog earlier in February.
Congratulations to both of them!
