Hikaru Utada has announced today through her official blog that she has given birth to a healthy baby boy with her husband whom she married last year, and also has a brand new album currently in the works!
Utada's decision to return to music came while she was pregnant with her son, and has stated that the album may take awhile to come out but is eager to get it out to fans as soon as possible. You can read a translation of her blog message below thanks to Zephyr:
Everyone I have an announcement.
Well, this time,
A baby has been born!
He’s a very gentle boy who naps and drinks his milk well.
For many people who have supported, those who were very close to me, and once again for my mother and father, I wanted to say thank you.
During pregnancy, I was working on a new album. It’s likely it’ll take a while for it to be completed, I’m delighted to be working on it and wanting to release it to everyone soon. Wait a little bit longer!

This announcement that Utada will be returning to create new music brings up a lot of questions, specifically those by Kingdom Hearts fans. Will she come back to do the theme song for Kingdom Hearts III? Let us know what you think in the discussion on our forums!
