When I wrote that Ninomiya Kazunari of Arashi announces his marriageI did not assume I would be writing this type of article so soon, especially with his 2020 schedule with Arashi.

On March 5, 2021, Ninomiya announced through his agency Johnny and Associates that his daughter was born.  It was revealed early in Josei magazine that his child would be born in spring.

Ninomiya stated, "I'm sorry for my personal affairs, but I have a report for everyone. The other day, my first child was born. I'm relieved that she was born safely."

"From now on, as a father, I will support my family and work harder than ever, so I would like to thank all of you for your warm support. Thank you for your continued support. Last but not least, I would like to thank all the medical professionals for their devoted support during this corona disaster. "

After Arashi stopped working at the end of last year, he has been performing as a solo MC on the NTV variety show "Nino-san" (Sunday 10:25 am). He is expected to play an even more active role as an actor, receiving the "44th Japan Academy Award" Outstanding Leading Actor Award for his performance in the 2020 movie "The Asadas! ".  He is best known to western audiences as Saigo from Letters from Iwo Jima.
