One of the starting pitchers on the MLB’s Chicago Cubs team this season is Yu Darvish. The #1 Japanese-born pro baseball player joined the MLB in 2012. Two years later, he hit the 500 strikeout mark in fewer innings pitched than any starting pitcher in MLB history.
The 33-year-old righty is married to four-time world-champion wrestler Seiko Yamamoto. She started wrestling when she was 3; her father Ikuei Yamamoto was an Olympic wrestler who competed in the 1972 Summer Olympics.
Yu and Seiko have a 4-year-old son together. Darvish is also father of two older sons (aged 11 and 9) with his ex-wife, popular Japanese actress Saeko. Those kids must never misbehave, because this mom looks ready for absolutely anything! Look at those abs! And look at those powerful arms!
