Josh Blue’s First Marriage
Before his relationship with Mercy, the Last Comic Standing winner had been married to his ex-wife, Yuko Kubota, for almost six years. They had tied their knot in around 2008 and stayed married until 2014.
Blue described that he instantly fell in love with Yuko. But it wasn’t easy convincing her. As Yuko belonged to a Japanese family, Blue had to travel to Japan to meet her parents.
The stand-up comedian, who has a condition called Cerebral Palsy, was concerned if Yuko had already mentioned to her parents about his health condition, and she replied saying, “No but I did tell them you were white.”
Talking about his then-wife, the comedian further said,
“The thing about Yuku is that she’s so deadpan. She cracks me up all the time, a lot, because she just sees the world so differently. It’s cool to get a different take on things sometimes.”
However, with time things seemed to have gone differently when the two ended their marriage in 2014. Although the reason for their divorce hasn’t surfaced yet, Blue mentioned his divorce a few times on his social handle.
For instance, in one of his Instagram posts of 2020, where he uploaded a picture with his current girlfriend, Blue responded to a comment regarding his divorce, saying that it happened for good.

His social media uploads are evident enough to suggest Blue shares an impeccably close bond with his children. And he often talks about them proudly in interviews.
In an interview, Blue shared what he thought when he knew he would be a father for the first time. He said,
I always wanted to be a dad. When I was a kid I always pictured myself as the cool dad in the neighborhood that all the kids would be like can your dad come out and play? Now that I am here I am not that dad because I am feeling old. I just enjoy being with my children.
Blue’s Instagram page is flooded with his kids’ pictures and their fond memories. Besides being close with their father, the kids also share an incredible bond with Blue’s girlfriend, as it appears on his ‘gram uploads.
