On 10th December 2020, the couple simultaneously announced their marriage through their respective official Twitter accounts. They thanked their fans for their support over the years and mentioned that they’ll continue working hard after their marriage.

The announcement came as a surprise for many as the two had never been rumoured to be dating. In fact, they were linked to other actors and actresses.

When did they start dating?

Erika Toda co-starred with Tori Matsuzaka in the 2015 Japanese film, April Fools. In the film, Erika played Ayumi Nitta, a janitor at a hospital, while Tori played Wataru Makino, a surgeon at the same hospital. Ayumi had a one-night stand with Tori and subsequently became pregnant. However, Makino didn’t believe her, thinking that it was an April Fools’ joke.
