Fashion model Tokuzawa Naoko (26) is expecting her first child, it has been learned. Sources say she is now entering her fifth month of pregnancy, and the child is due in mid-August. It is also said that she will be heading to the United States in early April to join her husband, Minnesota Twins infielder Nishioka Tsuyoshi (26).
Tokuzawa and Nishioka got married last year on July 27, Nishioka’s birthday. Around the end of last year, they discovered that Tokuzawa was pregnant, though Nishioka had already negotiated a deal to play with the Twins by that time.
The former Chiba Lotte Marines player flew to Minneapolis on February 2, and after finding a place to live, he headed to Florida on February 5 for training camp. Tokuzawa had originally planned to accompany Nishioka, but her doctor advised her to wait until she had entered the stable period of her pregnancy.
Tokuzawa is currently planning to give birth to the child there, so she is making arrangements in advance with the team and a local hospital.
