Musician, seiyuu, and actor, DAIGO, is about to get hitched next year, however, this may be a bit of bad news to some Keiko Kitagawa fans, as he and the actress will be tying the knot in January after DAIGO proposed to Kitagawa during her birthday.


The singer made his proposal to the actress last 22 August on her birthday, but he did it in typical DAIGO flair as he proposed to her right after participating in a 24-hour 100km marathon. They denied rumors that are going around that Keiko Kitagawa is pregnant.


The couple will officially be filing their marriage registration by mid-January 2016. They decided to get married in January so that Keiko Kitagawa will be able to tie the knot before she reaches the age of 30 next August.

The two first met on the set of Lady Saigo no Hanzai Profile in 2011 and kept in touch with each other as friends, even though both were leading busy lives with their respective careers, so they did not meet much during that period.  A mutual friend, Kanjiya Shihori, brought them together, and they started dating last March.

Keiko Kitagawa started out as a model before she started acting. She took the role of Sailor Mars in the live-action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon TV drama and has starred in several main roles in movies and TV shows. DAIGO on the other hand was formerly known as Daigo☆Stardust. He voiced Sena Shougo in the yaoi anime, Sena Shougo, and himself in the Cardfight! Vanguard anime. He also starred in a live-action Cardfight! Vanguard movie.
