“I hope my husband and I can work together to give our baby as much love as possible,” she said.
It has been almost two months since Kuroki and Johnny’s talent Jin Akanishi had gotten married, but finally the actress had sent out a handwritten statement to media companies by fax.

“Johnny’s & Associates talent Jin Akanishi admits the press reports from February 9 are true and that he married on Feburary 2.
It has been reported the TV company is moving ahead with production, and have already started auditioning actors to play school students.
Now, Akanishi’s schedule for the near future is blank.
Any fines, such as for canceling concert venue bookings, will be paid out of Akanishi’s own pockets.

“I had heard Akanishi-san was one of the leading candidates for the role, but it’s been made quite clear he’s out of the picture now,” the source said.
“GTO” would have been Akanishi’s first leading drama role since “Yukan Club” five years ago.
For the 27-year-old talent who said he left KAT-TUN because he hated how his own ambitions were causing the others trouble, this could be his toughest lesson yet.
