Marie Kondo's Husband: Who Is Takumi Kawahara?

Marie Kondo is pregnant! The super-neat Netflix star is expecting her third child with husband Takumi Kawahara.  

Marie Kondo is best known for her New York Times best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidy Up and her newest Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo which both showcase her expertise in being organized in your home and life.

In her Netflix series, she goes around the country helping those in need of reorganizing and decluttering their homes, creating an impactful change (for the good!) in her client's lives. 

But it looks like Kondo is about to make an impactful change in her own life as she prepares for a new addition to her adorable family. On Jan. 28 she let her 3.9 million Instagram followers in on a secret as she shared a snap of her baby bump with the caption, "I have some news! Another bundle of joy on the way."

Celebrities from Miranda Kerr to Drew Barrymore issued messages of congratulations in the comments alongside many supportive fans who wished the best to Kondo and her family.

Kondo's Instagram regularly features pictures with her family; including her husband. However, there's not much info about him out.
