According to Sports Nippon, Yaguchi Mari and her boyfriend Nakamura Masaya will be registering for marriage tomorrow.
There were some rumors back in December that Yaguchi was going to get married to her boyfriend Nakamura (that she quickly dismissed saying that the plans weren’t finalized) but they made it official today, which is great news since we finally get a confirmation and we can celebrate another marriage.
It has been a while since a UFA member got married (the last time I think it was Saito) so I was really surprised to hear about the news but I am really happy and I wish the best for the couple.
Congratulations to Yaguchi and Nakamura on their marriage and I hope we get to hear their future plans soon.
They will register for marriage tomorrow, May 22.
Congratulations Yaguchi and Nakamura!
EDIT: Here is a quick summary of the content of the article thanks to Tokyograph:
According to Sports Nippon, they had originally planned to register their marriage in mid-March, but due to the Tohoku earthquake, they decided to postpone it until May. Nakamura has been active with his agency’s “WAE Charity Project” and with volunteering, while Yaguchi has been participating in charity events and fundraisers as well.
The newspaper says that the two of them have already privately notified their agencies of their coming marriage. However, neither agency has publicly confirmed this news. If true, more details should be learned in the coming week.
So even though it hasn’t been publicly confirmed it seems that they will get married, but I will update this post once a confirmation by Yaguchi, Nakamura, or their agencies has been released.
For now Yaguchi has at least already confirmed that they will get married (she hasn’t denied the marriage when the rumor started in December so there are definitely plans for it), but the official date has yet to be confirmed, although we will find out for sure in the coming days.
EDIT: Confirmed, Yaguchi is already married, she showed off her ring and announced the news to the press yesterday, here is some footage from the event as well as a picture of the happy couple:
