Takumi and Marie have been married for nearly two decades now. While it's still unclear how both knew each other, they probably met in the late 2000s. In his Linkedin, Kawahara mentions that both became friends during his college years. After dating for some time, the pair tied the knot in 2012.

Now comes the fun part -- spending this special time with our little guy," she wrote sharing a sweet photo of the newborn with one of his sisters. The couple now reside in Beverly Hills, California, with their three kids, having previously lived in San Francisco.
