Kristi Yamaguchi's Daughters Are Too Cute

Kristi Yamaguchi sparkles at the world premiere of Disney-Pixar’s film Wall-E held at the Greek Theater on Saturday in Los Angeles.

The 36-year-old Olympic champion figure skater was accompanied on the red carpet with hockey player husband Bret Hedican, 37, and their two daughters, Keara, 4 1/2, and Emma, 2 1/2.

Yamaguchi and professional dancer Mark Ballas were this past season’s winners of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

How cute are Keara and Emma?! Especially Emma in this photo.

    THANKS JUST JARED.

  • xyz

    They’re so cute! The two sisters looks very much like one another.

  • mindy

    they are beautiful girls.. a perfect product of a japanese mother and caucasian father…

    ^^^^ Maybe there just aren’t that many Asian male actors! Kristi is not an actress either so she married an athlete. Most people marry their own kind so I think you are exaggerating.

  • tayler (miley cyrus fan 4eva)

    Soooooooooo Kute! :)

  • go sox

    I don’t think people who meet, fall in love, and want to spend their lives together, think much of what race they are. No one should marry someone based on their race; it should be who they love and cherish, no matter the color of their skin.

    8th!!! The girls are adorable. To number #6 Meg. I asked a friend of mine {f emale whom is asian} why alot of them marry american men, and she said Asian men are not as easy too find here, and are not as good looking and are very small, and usually not as educated. That will probably open up a can of worms with Asian men who read this, but that is what she and her Asian friends said, whether it is true or not. Anyway, Kristi and her family are very cute!!

  • T&M.

    You can’t help who you fall in love with. And, what’s it to you if Asian women marry someone outside their race? It’s actually enlightening to see different cultures collide and people, men and women, not having to be forced to marry one of their kind.

    And, Keara and Emma are absolutely gorgeous. They’re the perfect mix of Japanese and Caucasian. It’s funny how all bi-racial kids are adorable. :)

  • amy

    I saw great photos of her and her family on http://www.pro-thinspo.com and since then I am a big fan… lol

  • An Intelligent Mind

    Meg @ 06/22/2008 at 8:39 pm Do Asian women ever marry Asian men? Or are they determined to marry White men to “whiten the race” and have non-Asian looking kids? I have never seen an Asian female actress with an Asian husband. What self-loathing. How sad.

    ______________________________________________________
    That’s so racist and biased!! I hope you never have kids, because people should be free to date and marry whoever they fall in love with, regardless of race or color. I’ll have you know that i’m a 27 year old proud African-American woman W/Irish descent happily in love with an intelligent, sweet, caring Brazilian man, and it’s because we have amazing chemistry and love for each other! So what your’e saying makes no sense. I am willing to bet Kristi and her husband married each other because of what’s on the inside, not nessecarily of ethnicity or race. And their kids are so darn cute!! Let’s stop hating and live and love!!!

  • yeahhh

    this is so cute!!

  • manny

    aww they are so cute!!!

  • Kalia

    To #13 –> Excellent comment.

    I’m Asian and my fiance is *surprise surprise* also Asian. No, Asian women really don’t have trouble finding other Asians. It depends on the individual, and most of my Asian friends are engaged or involved with another Asian. I think Meg just took one look at Kristi and Brett and assumed every other Asian woman is like that. We’re not. Most of us still marry within our race and honestly, what does it matter of whether we do or we don’t?

    Wow, so bitter! What happened, honey, did an Asian woman steal your boyfriend?

    The kids are beautiful, whether you like it or not.

    Very cute family!

    Here’s a video from FitTV’s Art of the Athlete about Kristi and her family and how she and her husand met and fell in love!

    Somehow my earlier post seems to have gone lost, so hopefully I am not posting twice now. Anyway, Meg this comment about Asians having to marry Asians is horrible, I am with An Intelligent Mind on that one. America is a free country, people fought for the right to have everyone treated equal and give everyone the same rights and responsibilities. Of course there are still areas that need working on, but what you are saying is so backwards and uneducated. And I suppose it’s right what Victoria sais as well, you are shaped by your surrounding and if you live in an area where there are more white than Asian people, chances are much higher you will end up marrying someone with white skin. Not because you make a conscious decision to do so, it just happens that way. And completely agree with the rest of you, the most important thing is character, not looks. And by the way, Kristie’s daughters are just gorgeous!

    If you have a second to spare, I’d like to invite you to my new blog http://www.sunnykidstyle.com about stylish design for kids :):)

  • blah

    the kids are very ugly!

  • gw1230

    I guess we can’t post links to videos. If you google Kristi and pull up videos there is a FitTV segment called Art of an Athlete that she did before Emma was born. There are about 4 videos in total and I think the 3rd one is where she and her husband talk about how they met and fell in love. It’s very sweet.

  • Angeline

    STFU 24 and 25 !

    Her kids are SO cute !

  • wow

    Okay, some of these comments are ridiculous. Who you love with is based on a connection that goes much deeper than what you look like, and that goes for everyone. Plus, who said that just because you look similar (asian+asian, or what have you) you should be together???????

  • mindy

    FYI a lot of Asians are among the highest ducated in the country and have the highest income reported much higher thathe avergae white family….next to asian is white the i’m not even saying who gets the lowest rating based on income…i am just stating facts…
    typical asian immigrant to the US is college educated or with a masters degree and comes here and ends up working as licensed professionals like nurses and doctors, physical therapists, accountants and other fields that require a higher level of edication…in most asian culture getting a college education is alrewady a given to any child born to a educated parent it is required and not even thought about…
    and these educated asian girls don’t marry to produce white kids…a lot of white men like them because they are usually the kind of wives most men crave for…. and speaking of being asian not all asians look alike…depending on what country a lot of asian people are also very multi racial especially those coming from countries that were colonized by european countries for s o long…countries like the philippines, indonesia , malaysia and hong kong were colonized for hundreds of years by countries like spain, portugal, the netherlands (for indonesia) the Britsish Isles (for Hong Kong) and the USA….the philippines was a colony of SPain for 400 years and 50 years a colony of the US so the populated there is a mix of people of mixed ancestry with chinese, malay, spanish and what have you…looking part european in those colonized countries is a norm some of them look more european and continental than asian actually…those countries have been a melting pot since time immemorial long before people started accepting that here in the US…
    I just wish that people who have no knowledge of world history would shut up cos you know nothing about the rest of the world and your inputs are very limited based on your small town exposure…

    ANd for your information an example of products of a filipino mother are singer Enrique Iglesias whose mother Isabel is a Filipino of Spanish/filipino heritage and comedian Rob Schneider whose mother is also Filipino with mixed ancestry….and can these white men be blamed if they happen to fall in love with a beautiful and exotic and talented and educated Asian woman who will also surely give them a beautiful child…is that so hard to figure out….

  • CHILLOUT20000

    SORRY VITORIA #10 BUT THAT DOSENT JUSTIFY YOUR COMMENT CAUSE OF YOUR 2 MINORITY FRIEND OF YOURS..NOT EVERY ASIAN WOMEN LIKE BIG AND TUFF MEN AND THAT THEY DON’T HAVE TO BE TALL OR RICH AND LIVING IN FAKE FAKE WORLD…IF YOU WORLDLY MINDED AND GO TO ASIA AND SEE THE TRADITIONAL ASIAN LADIES,THEY ARE HAPPILY MARRIED FOR A LONG LONG TIME WITH MEN WHO ARE BETTER LOOKING THEN THEY ARE..IT DOESN’T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE THE LOOKS,TALL OR HOW BIG IS YOUR WALLET WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE..AND IT SHOULDN’T BE THE COLOUR OF THE PERSON ITS WHAT INSIDE THAT MATTERS..THATS WHY IN THE WESTERN WORLD THERE ARE SO MUCH BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN FAMILY’S CAUSE WE AWAYS WANTING AND WANTING MORE AND MORE..AND SHOULD BE HAPPY OF WHAT WE GOT…

    In this case, the initial connection was likely the amount of one’s life spent training in a rink. Hockey players and figure skaters are frequent matches.

    And ca-yute kids!! The little one’s a ham, you can tell. Can’t believe Kristi Yamaguchi is 36?? I remember when she was 18.

    Love Kristi, and her kids are adorable! My husband is a hockey fan, and used to root for Bret and his team.
    They seem like a very loving, sweet family!

    In response to some posts about Asian women marrying Caucasian men. It’s not easy to find true love. When you do, whether it be from your ethnicity or not, it’s a wonderful thing. America needs diversity, so open your minds people!

    Wow, you sound stupid and uneducated. There’s lots of Asians who are highly educated with high income. You sound a bigoted idi0t who needs to get out of your bubble and see the real world. You can’t help you who fall in love with. Most of my asian friends are with asian guys. So what?

  • dayummmm

    The kids are cute, but…DAMN! Look at her HUSBAND!!
    Hockey players are the freakin’ hottest men on the planet. Yum!

  • Carrie

    Gorgeous family….

  • grace

    OMG kirsti’s daughter’s are too cute!!

  • grace

    I just wanna say that it is unbelieveable what meg said….my mom is full blooded japanese and my dad is full blooded german(both born in america) and I am perfectly happy with my ethnicity….Its not about the color of someones skin or there ethnical background…its about the connection you have with a person….my mom moved from hawaii to san fran and then to san jose…so she was around lots of asians…and I do agee that if you are in an area that has more asains then its more likely that you will end up with an asian but my mom was still around plenty of asians and fell in love with my dad…so it just goes to show you that it doesnt matter where you live and what ethnicity you are….you will fall in love with whom ever you fall in love with

    and I said this in a previous comment but i still cant get over how cute kristi’s daughters are!

    hi.. hi.. hi.. it’s too cute. i want make her cry…

    sanjay you sound like sour grapes…sorry…scum…

  • Mary

    Why does every post about an Asian person always have to provoke such hostility about race and interracial dating/marriage! Can’t everyone just say “oh what cute kids” or “looks like Kristi lost a few pounds” just like every other superficial post about any American celebrity. Do you really think justjared.com is a forum to have a serious discussion about the sociology of Asians or interracial dating in America? PLEASE GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!!

  • eURASIAN

    I am of British/ Chinese descent and am currently residing in Singapore (Southeast Asia) with my family. The Asians here are certainly not stupid and in fact many asian males can actually give Cacuasian men a run for their money in term of looks. The Asians I meet here are eloquent and intelligent. Conversation with them are always a pleasure.

    The race tolerance level are very very high here. I think this is something America can learn from. Many of my American friends are actually ashamed of the seemingly superiority and vulgarity some of their fellowmen displayed. I think it’s time Americans see how the world does not revolve around them and the Whites are certainly not any more superior than the Asians.

    So please. The world is not in Black and White. So are the people living in this common ground we call home.

    Stop with the racist remarks. It will only show how naive and ignorant you are. The world will laugh at you. Not with you.
