J-Pop Superstar Ayumi Hamasaki, 41, Reveals She Gave Birth to Her First Child!

Ayumi Hamasaki is a first-time mother!

The 41-year-old “Evolution” J-Pop icon revealed the unexpected news in a post to fans on her social media on Thursday (January 2).

In the post, Ayumi – or Ayu, as she’s known to fans – revealed that she welcomed a baby boy at the end of 2019, calling him “a beautiful angel.” She asked fans to support her and give her time and space as she juggles her responsibilities, and thanked them for understanding, adding that she had even more respect for mothers – starting with her own.

The news came as a huge surprise, as Ayumi did not publicly disclose the pregnancy last year.

The identity of the father is not yet publicly known, although there is speculation that she is “in a relationship with a dancer who is 21 years younger than her.”

Congratulations to Ayumi Hamasaki!
