Ichikawa Ebizo, Kobayashi Mao to be parents

Kabuki actor Ichikawa Ebizo (33) and freelance announcer Kobayashi Mao (28) are preparing for a new addition to their family. According to a source close to the couple, Kobayashi is five months pregnant with their first child.

Ichikawa and Kobayashi got married in March 2010, and they held their wedding ceremony last July. That month may become even more special for them, as Kobayashi is expected to give birth in July.

In addition, both Kobayashi and her sister Maya (31), also a freelance announcer, were born in July.
