Management deny Aya Ueto and EXILE's Hiro to get married this spring
Management for both actress Aya Ueto, 26, and Hiroyuki Igarashi, 42, a member of the all-male group EXILE, said Tuesday that report sin Monday’s tabloids that the two would get married in the spring were not true.
The tabloids reported that Ueto had let it be known to friends, family and her talent management agency that the couple, who have been dating since last year, are planning to get married during cherry blossom season.
Sports Nippon reported that details of the wedding have yet to be finalized, but said that Igarashi, known to fans as “Hiro,” met Ueto’s mother shortly after they began dating and that the pair have a good relationship. Insiders report that Ueto’s mother often goes to dinner with them and finds Hiro to be “masculine but modest.”
Friends of the couple also say that Ueto, who currently does TV commercials for a number of high-profile sponsors, will continue to appear in ads and television shows after the couple are wed.
A spokesman for EXILE’s management said Igarashi is busy with his work, including getting ready a tour that starts in the spring.
