Japanese singer Tsuji Nozomi, 20, and her husband, Japanese actor Sugiura Taiyou, 26, welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Sugiura Noa today. Noa was born at 12:45 a.m. and weighed just over 6 pounds. Noa’s name means ‘sky of hope.’ Proud father Taiyou reported that Tsuji is doing well and is ‘deeply moved.’

Nozomi was formerly a member of musical groups Morning Musume, W, and Mini Moni.
