Fans were left in awe when Shohei Ohtani, the Los Angeles Dodgers player and baseball sensation, revealed the surprising news about his recent marriage. Now, with the unveiling of his wife’s identity, the excitement has reached a fever pitch.

Social media platforms are buzzing with discussions and speculations about the mysterious woman who captured Ohtani’s heart. Let us discuss who is the new wife of Shohei Ohtani!!

Who Is Shohei Ohtani’s New Wife?

Ohtani put up a picture of himself, teammate Yoshinobu Yamamoto, and another person in front of an airplane in an Instagram story. Ohtani was standing next to a woman who looked like Mamiko Tanaka in the picture.

He wrote “Can’t wait!” and an image of the South Korean flag under the picture. The group was on their way to Seoul for the MLB season which is starting next week.

On the other hand, the Dodgers’ X account posted a picture of Ohtani and Tanaka together, as well as a picture of Mookie Betts and his wife on the tarmac on Thursday. The alt text on the picture of Ohtani and Tanaka called Tanaka “his wife.”

Ohtani, who is 29 years old, had only said in public that his wife was “a normal Japanese woman.” Tanaka, who is now 27 years old, used to play competitive basketball for the Fujitsu Red Wave in the Women’s Japan Basketball League from 2019 to 2023.

ESPN says that the 5-foot-11 forward shot 47.7% from the field and 69.9% from the free throw line in 28 games during her last season. Also, in a Twitter post, Barstool Sports suggested that Shohei Ohtani’s wife could potentially start for the Wizards.

This week’s social media posts finally answered the most important question about Ohtani’s marriage, which he first announced on social media in February, breaking hearts all over Japan.

He wrote in an Instagram post, “Not only have I begun a new chapter in my career with the Dodgers but I also have begun a new life with someone from my Native country of Japan who is very special to me and I wanted everyone to know I am now married.”

“I don’t feel comfortable talking about when I got married exactly,” he said at the time. He also said that he thought it was “good timing” to tell everyone because it was before the season started.

It’s interesting that the February news and this week’s wife reveal happened at the same time. Ohtani is the talk of the world right now because he signed a record-breaking $700 million deal to join the Dodgers from the Los Angeles Angels.

Ohtani’s rising fame has made him, his new team, and his friends more well-known than ever before.

The intense focus on Ohtani from both the media and fans has been described as “crazy” by Dodgers outfielder James Outman. He remarked, “I’m telling you, he’s like Elvis. Everyone screams just getting a glimpse of him.”
