DISTURBED and DEVICE frontman David Draiman and his wife, Lena Yada — a Japanese-American model, actress, professional tandem surfer and professional wrestler — are expecting their first child.
Draiman and Yada tied the knot on September 25, 2011 in Texas. The Pulse Of Radio asked Draiman how he thought becoming a married man might change his music. “You know, I can only imagine that it would give me more inspiration to write,” he said. “I think that when you all of a sudden become a family man, and you have more to worry about than just yourself, your concerns, they build, in terms of things going on with the world, in terms of your life, in terms of your fears and your hopes and your dreams. And so I really think it’ll be a tremendous catalyst for potential inspiration.”
DISTURBED has been on hiatus since late 2011. Draiman said that the group will get back together at some point but that there is “no plan in place” yet to reconvene.
Draiman revealed in a December 2011 interview that his plans during DISTURBED‘s current hiatus included an attempt to “impregnate my wife and have a baby.”
DEVICE‘s self-titled debut album came out on April 9, selling 35,000 copies in its first week of release to debut at No. 11 on the Billboard album chart.
