It is true! Zoro is married and he recently became a daddy too!
If watched ‘One Piece’ then you probably have simped over Mackenyu who plays the swordsman Roronoa Zoro.
I am sorry to burst all the bubbles, but he is off the market!
Mackenyu is usually pretty tight-lipped about his personal stuff. He did shock his fans when he dropped the bomb that he’s tying the knot with a regular gal HeTexted.com reports!
“At this time, I, Arata Mackenyu, would like to announce that I have gotten married. From now on, we will continue to support each other while spending precious time together. I will devote myself to delivering dreams and inspiration to more and more people. It would make me happy if you would watch over us warmly.” he said in the statement.
Who is she, you ask? Well, that’s the million-dollar question! Her identity remains shrouded in mystery.
But one thing’s for sure, Mackenyu had been smitten with her for a while before taking the plunge.
Also, the wife is said to be older than him! Ooh la la, Mackenyu likes ’em mature! Apparently, they met through work.
We can not let this be a mystery. That’s why we put on our Sherlock Homes hats to crack this case wide open. And guess who we suspect? Drumroll, please… Natsuki Okamoto!
The actor and his pregnant wife
During the digging, we also bumped into some cool news that will leave fans heartbroken.
MACKENYU HAS A BABY!!!!
Yes, it is true, his wife and he brought their first bundle of joy into this world at the end of July 2023 as reports stated.
Regarding the identity of the girl who stole his heart, everything is yet to be confirmed.
Still, we are very suspicious of the news since none of the actors denied or said anything about them being linked.
However, this is about to turn even more interesting! By the looks of it, the actor is not new to the baby thing.
Arata Mackenyu supposedly became a dad when he was just 14 years old. And get this, it was with his mom’s best friend who was a whopping 30 years older than him!
The Japanese outlets went wild with this story and they even gave the woman a nickname, Y-san.
In 2013 they said that she was being charged for having sex with a minor. But here’s the kicker, Arata’s family took this whole thing to court in the US.
They accused Y-san of doing something totally illegal with their son. Crazy, right?
Wait hold up, because it is said that Mackenyu himself came out and confessed that he wasn’t forced into this relationship. He claimed it was all consensual.
The drama gets even thicker. This news was revealed 10 years ago, which means the baby was conceived in 2011-2012.
Does that mean that baby is now somewhere between 11 to 12 years old? Math is not mathing but the tea, the tea is just…
Photos of the rumored wife!
In 2022, some YouTuber named Higashiya Yoshikazu spilled the tea that Arata has a bunch of complicated relationships.
This same YouTuber accused Arata of sleeping with married women all the time. Yikes! And it gets even crazier.
Arata was even investigated for drugs because of his relationship with actress Sawajiri Erika. They hooked up one night and then she got busted for using drugs.
But here’s where things get shady. The YouTuber dude said that Arata threatened him and even got some gangsters involved to keep him quiet.
Of course, Arata denied all of this, but who knows what’s going on behind the scenes. Drama, drama, drama, and a lot of drama!
Either way, once again nothing has been confirmed. So we do not know for sure if any of this is real or just made up. More like rumors!
