    I'm not sure why after a life changing thing like having a baby she's even bothering to come back for one more year to be honest.

    Wild and crazy thought here, but maybe she just enjoys skating and/or competing?

    Wow. Congrats to her!

    I hope we do see her at Japan Nationals. That would be something.

    Wow, this is the shock of the OFFSEASON
    how could she mantain a pregnancy in secret? i suppose JSF and some skaters had to know, so congrats to them for keeping the secret.
    I have no words about this, congratulations Miki. These Japanese skaters are full of surprises sometimes

    swedish figure skater Magda Julin won a gold medal in the 1920 Olympics while three months pregnant.

    Wow, this was the last thing I expected to read today.

    There's a certain sad beauty to Miki's face, but when she lights up she looks amazing.

    Congrats Miki!

    wtf

    I saw this thread and read the first post in the am and all day I assumed it was a joke, or (most likely) some tabloid had gotten their story seriously screwy. It never occurred to me that it was true

    Congrats to Miki, and here's hoping she finds success this season, whatever that looks like for her.
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    TBS, one of the most popular TV stations in Japan, reported:
    http://news.tbs.co.jp/newseye/tbs_newseye5372661.html

    "Miki Ando, a figure skater, gave birth to a baby girl in April"
    It is revealed that Miki Ando, a figure skater, gave birth to a baby girl in April. Last year Ando withdrew from GPS all the last minutes because of the absence of her coach and the fall of the motivation. She is aiming to appear in her third straight Olympics growing the baby born to her and a retired figure skater who experienced participating in Worlds.
    In addition, it is said the baby's name is "Himawari".

    Congrats to Miki and her family. What a secret keeper this girl is!

    Edit:I added "retired" to "a figure skater" for correction.

    It's funny how there was a fake Irina Slutskaya pregnancy rumor circulating every off season, and then Miki came along and pops out a little sunflower on the sly

    It's amazing how she was able to hide this from the Japanese paparazzi.

    SAY WHAAAT!?!?!?

    I don't log on for a day and when I come back this is what I see . Pretty crazy that Miki could keep this a secret, but congrats to her, I'm sure she is a fantastic mother!

    To follow in the footsteps of Rodnina and Gordeeva and win an OGM? BTW, would you ask the same question about a male competitor?

    Miki probably does not see motherhood and skating as being mutually exclusive. I imagine she will be careful in planning in her training and competition schedule.

    I am shocked. Glad it wasn't Morozov's. I hope Miki comes back strong this season and make it to the Olympics.

    I was telling a friend to stop complaining about Miki Ando's comeback because that is just missing the gold mine of international publicity that she would bring to skating next year. With this news, I feel vindicated.

    Maybe she wants to win an Olympic medal for her baby.
