J-actress Ishihara Satomi Welcomes First Child with Non-celeb Husband After Continuing to Work Through Pregnancy

Nothing wrong with that but it’s sad to see so many faves leave the industry when there is plenty of optionality to continue their career. J-actress Ishihara Satomi got married two years ago and made it clear she was not retiring then but she got pregnant last year and I wasn’t sure if she was going to stay the course. She did and continued to work through her pregnancy showing up on TV programs and awards shows rocking various comfortable but elegant maternity wear.
