On December 8, actor Sugiura Taiyou's (37) wife, former Morning Musume member Tsuji Nozomi (32) has birth to their fourth child, a 2,655 gram (5 lbs 13 oz) baby boy.
Both Tsuji and Sugiura made the happy announcement on their official blogs. She expressed, "Once again, I felt how risky and miraculous it is to give birth to a new life. Also, no matter how many times you do it, every birth is different! And no matter how many times I've experienced it, it's painful!"
She continued, "Our family of six will become even more lively. In the beginning, we will be really busy, but our children are looking forward to taking care of the baby too, so we hope to go through each day by putting all of our powers together."
Sugiura similarly stated, "I was able to witness the birth again. The very moment the baby is born is moving. When you hear the first cry, tears naturally come out of your eyes. When you carry him, you immediately love him. There are no words to explain this feeling. Every child has their own story when they are born." He then said to his wife, "Thank you. My heart is full."
Tsuji and Sugiura tied the knot in June of 2007. They had their first child in November of the same year, their second in December of 2010, and their third in March of 2013.
