At a press conference on the 31 Oct 2011, Oshima Yuko came out holding a baby. A new scandal? No, of course not. The press conference was the launch of AKB48's new Internet Service Provider [AKB48 OFFICIAL NET].

Yup. [AKBaby]. No sadly you won't get a chance to mate with your oshimen. It's a special service for subscribers to [AKB OFFICIAL NET]. Starting from November 1st, they can find out how they and their idol's baby will look. The slogan for this service is "Why don't we make a baby? On the net."
If you were wondering, the baby shown above is the baby between Oshima Yuko and Noda Yoshihiko, the current Prime Minister of Japan.
During the press conference, Oshima Yuko was asked what does her ideal family look like. She responded that she wants to have at least 2 children and to become a mother who can act as a close friend just like her own mother. Though she also mentioned that she has no plans for marriage and having children yet. Looks like it's career first for Oshima Yuko...
