Thanks to Heather for the heads up on this, and I must say… wow.
So, according to various Japanese news sites, including ZAKZAK and Sponichi.jp, Miyavi is married and expecting.
Here is the article translated from ZAKZAK.co.jp (note this is a TRANSLATION):
Retired Beautiful Singer melody. is Married… and Already Expecting?
It has been discovered that at the end of last year, melody (27), the Japanese singer born in Hawaii who retired January for this year, married the rock artist 雅-Miyavi- (age not officially announced).
According to authorized sources, the couple got along after being introduced by a mutual friend. There is also a rumour that melody is “currently pregnant”.
melody made her debut in 2003. She is a singer with a transparent voice, who gained support through her popularity, and hit songs such as “realize”. In October of last year, in order to pursue a career as a fashion designer, she announced that she would retire from music.
Osaka-born Miyavi made his debut in 2002.
In 2007 he participated in a unit with X Japan’s YOSHIKI and Gackt.
Thoughts? I can’t find any official statement from either melody or Miyavi, but it does seem to be spreading like wildfire!

Edit March 27th:
While a lot of people have already read what Miyavi has said about it, Melody has posted an entry on her MySpace:
Thank you so much for your warm messages!!!
It makes me very happy and relieved~!
About the news that went out yesterday,
Im really sorry that everybody had to find out this way.
Actually, we were planing on coming out publicly about it when the time comes,
which was next month, after he goes independent.
But the news got out before hand and we found out about it yesterday morning also.
So I sincerely apologize from my heart that it couldn’t be me to tell you all directly.
You all know I really wanted to right??
He is also struggling with this situation, because we wanted to explain everything, but can’t because of the position he is in at this moment…
But don’t worry, because when the time comes, like I said earlier, we’d finally be able to share with you maybe more in detail!!
As for now, I am doing fine as always… Bubbly as ever! And yes, what did I tell ya!
talk about good news!!
I’ll write again soon!!!!
