On December 5th, Sankei Sports reported that Nakazawa Yuko (38), a Dream Morning Musume member and the first leader of Morning Musume, will be getting married next spring.
Nakazawa’s future husband is said to be a president of an IT-related company who lives in Fukuoka prefecture. The couple started dating in August and were ‘outed’ by tabloid magazine ‘FRIDAY‘, who reported on their relationship back in October.
Reportedly, the couple will introduce each other to their parents early in the new year, and have plans to hold a wedding ceremony next spring. There will not be a reception party, and Nakazawa will move to Fukuoka to be with her husband. Although Nakazawa will continue pursuing her career, her activities will be reduced since she will be travelling back and forth between Tokyo and Fukuoka. However, she is willing to participate in special concerts or events as much as she can.
There have been no official statement from Nakazawa about this report at this moment.
