It has been about a month since the affair between actress Ryoko Hirosue (43) and Shusaku Toba (43) was reported.
On July 18, she celebrated her birthday and held a birthday party at her home, enjoying her first holiday in a long time with her friends.
It seems that it was Ms. Hirosue’s wish to separate from Mr. Candle. After moving out, I heard that Ms. Hirosue’s mother has come to the house to help her with various aspects of her life” (Hirosue’s acquaintance).
Even after returning home, Hirosue had to lay low for a while, but she also resumed picking up and dropping off her children who were going out. Hirosue and her three children had returned to a peaceful life.
I heard that originally, the childcare was mainly done by Hirosue. I think it was because they had seen her do so that the children decided to follow her instead of Mr. Candle. Although the timeline for her resumption of work is unclear, it seems that she is putting priority on spending time with her children, perhaps out of a sense of atonement for her sins.
At Candle’s emergency press conference held on June 21, Candle spoke about how hard Hirosue had been working to raise her child. He said that there had been talk of divorce even before the affair was reported, and that the two older children had decided to follow Hirosue as they “had to protect their mother.
On Mother’s Day this year, his 19-year-old eldest son took the lead in sending flowers and letters to Hirosue. It is an annual event in the Hirosue family organized by the children. The letter said, ‘Thank you for being my mom for 19 years. Please continue to be the best mother in the world.
The “best mother” was undeterred by her husband’s two separations and the reports of her infidelity.
