This is what Oshi no Ko is about:
How about being reborn as the child of an idol? This question has occupied Goro, doctor and hardcore fan of the idol Ai Hoshino, since it was asked by a patient shortly before her death. He works in a hospital somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Japan and that's exactly why he would never expect what happens next: his favorite idol suddenly shows up there pregnant with twins. She wants to secretly give birth to her children and then continue her life as an idol.
The months pass and the time comes to give birth to the children when suddenly Goro encounters a stalker of Ai's. He pursues him, but is brutally beaten down by him and dies. To his surprise, he ends up in neither heaven nor hell, but is reborn as one of Ai's twins…?!
