Airi Suzuki - Family 鈴木愛理のご家族

Airi's family (picture from "Airi Mania" stylebook)



Her paternal grandparents still lives in Gifu and her grandparent's name is Motoyuki SUZUKI (鈴木基之). He graduated from Rikkyo University's baseball club. He was only one year younger than Shigeo Nagashima, and seeing how great his senior was, he gave up baseball and got a job at a security company. After that, he quit his job and started a golf driving range in his hometown in Gifu. Airi's father Toru says he was the typical "father from the Showa era", he was so strict he was afraid to talk to him face-tot-face until he graduated from high school.

Trivia :
The other choice for Airi's name was Merry (Merii メリイ) but her grandmother told her parents that she would've been made fun of at school because there was a popular horror game called "Merry's phonecall", so they decided to name her Airi.

● Airi used to live with her parents and her young brother in Yamatake-gun Oamishirasato-chou, Chiba prefecture. She now lives alone in Tokyo.
● Her parents have known each other since university. They were playing golf together, but as Toru's father was strict they were a lot of things and he got dumped. After a while, she came to the Mizuno Tokyo Open to support other players, and also watched him play. They started dating again then. They married on a November 15th, but they registered their marriage just one year before Airi's birth. At that time, they were living at Toru parent's house.
● When Airi started her activities in 2002, Toru felt frustrated because his wife, who was very supportive, was pretty busy supporting their daughter. He also had to pick Airi up sometimes but it was sometimes at midnight and he didn't think it'd be great as a sport professional to have this kind of life so he went to Australia during the off-season in 2004 and spent all his time playing golf. However, when he was eating at a restaurant, he saw a father happily eating with his child. He thought "I can't live a life where only my golf activities are important" and thought he should include his family more.
● When she was younger, her mother used to bring her to Morning Musume.'s concerts. She also made homemade crafts like Anpanman cushions that Airi loved or even a teddy bear with clothes.
● When her father's results started to decline, her mother said "I married you because I liked the size of your butt, but it's sagging a bit lately", which motivated her father to work on his lower body, which is the foundation of his swing.
● In 2021, her mother was hospitalized for sepsis. She spent 12 days in the hospital and almost died. Fortunately, she recovered.
