Baseball player Shohei Ohtani announced his marriage to a Japanese woman

One of Japan’s most eligible bachelors, baseball star Shohei Ohtani, caused a social media frenzy when he revealed he was married. The Los Angeles Dodgers star has kept his personal life very secret, so his declaration surprised many. “I wanted everyone to know that I am married,” the 29-year-old wrote on Instagram on Thursday.Ohtani would not identify his Japanese wife, just describing her as “someone who is very special to me.” He said to his seven million Instagram followers, “Two people (plus one dog), we’ll grow together,” and announced that he will be holding a news conference on Friday.


Ohtani became one of the highest-paid athletes in the world last year when he inked a record-breaking 10-year, $700 million (£552 million) contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Ohtani is comparable to American baseball icon Babe Ruth because he is equally adept at both pitching and batting, unlike most players who specialize in one or the other. He’s been dubbed “Shotime” and is regarded as one of the greatest players in the world.


After Ohtani made the revelation in an Instagram post that received one million likes in less than an hour, congratulations flooded social media. However, many others were devastated that the nation of Japan’s love interest was no longer available. “Ohtani Shohei is wed. One post said, “This is the worst day of my life.” Congratulations to him and his wife! I’m very pleased for them. Another remark said, “It’s great that he could disclose it independently and according to his own terms. Ohtani’s club also sent their best wishes to him while he is training in the United States.
