After their wedding announcement in February 2021, Terrace House cast members Seina Shimabukuro, 34, and Noah Ishikura, 25, are now expecting their first child.
Posting on her Instagram on Friday (31 Dec), Shimabukuro wrote in Japanese, “Although this is a personal matter, as a couple, we have been given a new life. We are pleased to share that I have entered a stable period, and my physical condition is stable.”
“I am filled with love for my tummy, which grew bigger every day, and I feel happiness from my heart thinking about having a new member in my family. I am thankful for everyone’s support,” she continued. Shimabukuro also asks everyone to “watch over us warmly” on behalf of the couple.
Shimabukuro, who was on both Terrace House’s Boys × Girls Next Door and Opening New Doors instalments, met Ishikura on the latter season. After dating for nearly three years, the couple tied the knot and became the first married couple from the franchise.
The couple had recently shared various wedding photos on their Instagram and a vlog from their photoshoot in Kyoto. “There are a lot of photos that I really love,” Shimabukuro wrote as she shared the photos with her fans.
