It was all a case of misunderstanding when Speed memberUehara Takako was spotted holding the hands of a child at the Naha Airport while she was visiting her hometown in Okinawa.

According to Tokyo Hive, a rumour started spreading that Ueharahad a child out of wedlock with fiancé ET-King member Tenn, when an airport staff had mistakenly identified the child to be hers. When Uehara first heard about the rumours from her mother, she clarified on her official blog that the child was not hers, but was her nephew.

However, Uehara was flattered that she was mistaken as the mother of the child, saying:

“If it looked like I was at ease holding my nephew, I am happy. I guess I looked like a mother.”

Uehara added that she would let everyone know ‘when that time comes’.

Singers Meisa Kuroki 23 and Jin Akanishi 27 made major news when the two were seen out together at the Tokyo DisneySea on January 22, 2012, in Okinawa on January 14, 2012, and in Tokyo’s Koto Ward at the Lalaport Toyosu on January 21, 2012 but they both denied they were dating.

However, there are numerous media reports including Sports Nippon who first released the news that Kuroki is two months pregnant and got married to Akanishi on February 2, 2012.

Kuroki has a new album called “UNLOCKED” the day after Valentine’s Day on  February 15, 2012 along with promoting the album and Akanishi has new album coming out “JAPONICANA” in March 7, 2012. Also, Akanishi will be touring the U.S. which includes five cities plus he will be acting in a film with Keanu Reeves “47 RONIN” to be released in December 2012.

If the report is true that Kuroki and Akanishi are dating, married, and pregnant, it’s not good to deny the truth. Just tell the truth to your fans, don’t worry about the media, think about being honest with your fans. Never lie to your fans. However, if this news of Kuroki and Akanishi isn’t true, then their fans can see them as honest celebrities and the story of them being a couple that’s expecting a baby is just a false media report.

Kuroki and Akashini do make a gorgeous couple and if they are expecting a baby then that’s going to one super gorgeous baby. However, they are both busy in the entertainment industry which is a very difficult place to keep a relationship from falling apart. It never fails, it ends.
