Mizushima Hiro & Ayaka appear together in a press conference, marriage already registered. Ayaka suffering from Basedow's Disease and will stop work by end of year.
3rd April 2009
On the same day (3rd April) that Sports Nippon revealed on its cover that they are registering their marriage on the 13th, Mizushima Hiro and Ayaka held a press conference at TBS's Akasaka. "Ayaka and I, Mizushima Hiro registered our marriage on the 22nd of February 2009. We wanted to begin our life together. It is our hope to convey this to everyone and our fans and we hold this interview today," said Mizushima, reporting that the marriage has already taken place. Further, there were other circumstances that led to their speedy decision to marry after dating for about half a year; Ayaka is suffering from Basedow's disease.
"We informed our agency on the 1st of April that we had registered our marriage. We now want to convey the news to everyone properly," Mizushima said, facing the press today. "Actually the reason for the quick decision is that Ayaka suffers from a chronic disease and I want to watch over her." Ayaka said,"I found out about my chronic disease the year following my debut. Although I can continue with work if I take the medicine, when there's too much I have shortness of breath and heart palpitations. I cannot sing as much as I like. Actually, today too is a little much..." she said, cutting her words shorter.
"His existence means a lot to me. With this marriage, I hope to take the chance to recover completely. I hope to join the family and support him as his wife. By the end of the year, I'll take a break from work. How long it will be has not been decided, I hope to face up to the illness," said Ayaka, while glancing at Mizushima from time to time. "I want to do my best for the medical treatment, in music and as a wife."
Mizushima proposed to her last autumn with simple words "I want to get married." Ayaka said smiling,"Everything in front of me became white. I thought I was dreaming so I asked him to say it again." The ring sparkling on her left hand was given to her at the end of last year. "I gave the ring to Ayaka-san just before she appeared on Kouhaku, at home. I wanted her to know that the marriage was for real," Mizushima said, wanting to let her have peace at mind.
The illness was not the only reason, the two of them feel like that they're connected from their hearts. "It's hard to say it straight to her face but she is the first person to make me believe in 'a love that has its natural extension to a marriage'. If I let her go, I would regret it," Mizushima said shyly. Ayaka said,"I feel the same. A person I can respect from the bottom of my heart."
Ayaka is not expecting. With a new wife to support him, Mizushima said,"It's a new start. I will do my best in each and every one of my work so that my marriage to Ayaka is seen as something favourable."

I would prefer that she's pregnant than for this. Her singing career may be over and she's a good singer. That's very sweet of him and I do respect him for his decision. I hope there'll be no backlash on his career.

So sweeeetttt..... <3
Although, I still think that you can protect & be there for someone you love even if you're not marrying her/him. But then again, Rihito-sama is such a gentleman....

I don't think that this will have a backlash on Hiro's career. I reckon the public would understand what Ayaka's going through and support them by empathising. I wish them the best!
