She made the announcement on Jan. 1 on her Instagram where she posted a photo of herself with a ring on her finger. Aoi also shared a picture of her husband smiling and drinking wine on her Twitter that same day.

A day after the initial announcement, the 34-year-old star, who is also very famous in China’s own social media platform Weibo, with more than 18 million followers, wrote in her blog that starting a family has always been one of her dreams.
“I’ve always wanted to get married. I love kids, and it’s always been my dream to start a lovely family…My [husband] is neither handsome nor rich, but he has removed all of my uneasiness about having been in adult films, as well as everything else,” she wrote, as translated by SoraNews24.
“I don’t regret making adult films, but it’s also not like I don’t feel any embarrassment about how such work is viewed by society. To create a family, you have to accept everything about each other, your past and future, so I think my husband is really an awesome guy for accepting me.”
Aoi is sometimes called “Teacher Sola” by some of her followers on Chinese social media, according to Shanghaiist. She reportedly provides the necessary sexual education to some of the youths in the country, where, ironically, porn is illegal and the sexual education system is sometimes considered as a joke.
But don’t worry. Aoi isn’t going anywhere even though she’s off the market.
“To all of my fans and associates,” she wrote, “I am still the same Sola Aoi I have always been, and I look forward to your continuing support.”
