Rumors that Ryoko Hirosue's rocky marriage to model-designer Takahiro Hirosawa is finally over have been firmly quashed following a lovey-dovey night out with the family to mark the actress's 27th birthday recently, according to Josei Jishin (8/7).
Hirosue and Hirosawa, who married in 2003 when the heartthrob actress fell pregnant, were rumored to have split within months of their union, with the comparatively low-earning model-designer sent off to fend for himself.
But the whispers have been dispelled after Hirosue, Hirosawa and their little boy spent a night out on the town on July 25.
Hirosue and her son collected Hirosawa from his Tokyo office and the family of three headed off to a posh pub in an exclusive part of the Ebisu district.
"We're gonna have mommy's birthday party tonight," Josei Jishin quotes Hirosawa telling his son before they headed inside.
Another customer at the restaurant says Hirosue's family stood out among the mostly older crowd, largely because the little boy's voice was loud and echoed throughout the establishment.
"Hirosue would feed the boy and ask him if it was yummy and he'd reply really loudly. There didn't seem to be much conversation going on between the couple and when they did talk, it seemed to be about their child," the customer tells Josei Jishin. "Hirosue talked a lot to the kid and fed him by hand. The husband watched her while she did it."
After dining for about an hour, Hirosawa suddenly sparked the family into action.
"I don't know whether it was because he was drunk or not, but his voice was really loud as he said, 'C'mon guys, let's go to karaoke. It'll be his first time,' he said, pointing at his son," another customer says.
The family stopped by at a nearby cake store, where they appear to have bought a birthday cake for Hirosue. Following that, it was on to a nearby karaoke joint, where they sang for an hour before stepping out and catching a cab home to their Tokyo apartment.
Josei Jishin says the whispers of Hirosue being a hair's breadth away from divorce couldn't have been further from the truth based on what happened for the actress's birthday.
