    That makes her getting back into competitive shape for the Olympics all the more interesting.

    It explains why she wants to compete, if possible.

    Bit more info - the baby is a girl and although the father was not named it was reported in a Japanese tabloid that she is living with Yasuharu Nanri.

    OMG, I almost thought this was an April Fools thread and someone re-opened it exactly three months to the day to be smart.

    I guess this explains why we haven't heard much from her lately and why the chances are even slimmer now that she'll be back in contention for Sochi.

    If the baby is Morozov's, I'll scream.

    The baby's name is reported to be "Himawari" which means "sunflower" in Japanese.

    It's not April 1st, but July;)

    Miki answered the interview in one of TV programs in Japan, and announced her retirement from the eligible figure skating after Sochi Olympic and the big news she gave a baby birth last April. She also said she noticed it during she left from ice how wonderful figure skating would be! It is said she will be a first lady single skater in the history, if she can compete in a Olympic Games.

    Congratulations, Miki!!!!!
    And wish her and her family good luck and happiness:)

    I'm pretty sure Paurova-Babiakova already went to the Olympics in singles after having a baby. Still :cheer2: for Miki and best of luck to her with the baby & future skating appearances!

    It's pretty amazing that she was able to keep this private for so long. Wow. Congratulations and good luck to her in the future.

    Babiakova was the one precedent for a singles skater coming back after having a baby that I came up with, too. Obviously there have been a few in pairs and ice dance.

    I hope the baby has her mother's genes for great jumping ability. Congrats to Miki, but like everyone else I am shocked by the news.

    Seriously? How on earth would she have kept this a secret?

    Translation please! Are we sure this isn't a niece or a friend's baby and she's just talking about how wonderful it would be if it was hers?

    This is just shocking. No wonder JSF wants to have her really prove her readiness. They were probably aware of her pregnancy and birth so they are probably quite suspicious that she will be ready to compete at Nationals.
