Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes on having a baby: "Now na, ngayon na!"

Richard Poon and wife Maricar Reyes will be celebrating their third wedding anniversary on June 9.


This year, Richard Poon and wife Maricar will be celebrating their third year as husband and wife.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with the couple last March 6, at Isabel Oli's surprise baby shower in Le Jardin Manila, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

While Maricar was busy participating in one of the games, Richard told PEP and Manila Bulletin the magic behind their marriage.

"Malalim kami magkaibigan e," the crooner said. "We talk about everything, alam mo yun?

"Thank Lord na we have jobs na. I mean, ako, eight to five ako, di ba, sa restaurant, six and a half days.

"Ngayon, my work is one event, then I can go home with her and I talk to her the whole time.

"Siya naman, ganun din. May teleserye, after a while, she can go home, we can talk at home.

"We have so much time together, so yung two and a half years, feeling ko, feeling ko lang ah, feel ko mga six to seven years na kami magkasama."

They first met each other in 2009, when Richard released his version of "You and I," where Maricar starred with him in the music video.

Richard continued, "Parang ganun, ang daming naming napag-uusapan ang dami naming ginagawa."

One of them included Maricar's latest venture, her choco-liquor cakes.

"May business siya, di ba, may choco-liquor cake siya? Yun, kami gumagawa, nagbe-bake sa bahay.

"Ngayon, may mga tao na kami.

"Ngayon, we started with one ref now we have five already na freezers and chillers, so ang dami naming nagagawa together."

At this point, Maricar had finished the game, and joined the interview.

Her eyes lit up while talking about their choco-liquor cake, which is a mix of her love for sweets and Richard's innate talent to add extra special ingredients to a recipe.

Maricar said, "We take a classic recipe, and gift kasi niya yung mag-isip ng kung anu-anong weird stuff,

"So he puts weird stuff into a classic cake, and so it still tastes classic pero may something."

Richard added, "Laging may alak. Hindi naman ako umiinom o tomador, pero…

"First cake is choco-liquor cake, and then the next one coming out is mocha-bourbon naman siya."

Maricar was excited to add a new flavor to the business, "Saya...By accident may nahanap kami na magandang mixture na non-chocolate naman."

BABY POON. After two years and a half of being married, Richard and Maricar revealed that they are finally planning to have a baby.

"Now na, ngayon na!" Maricar promptly answered when asked the perennial baby question.

"A lot of people ask us that and before, answer namin, 'We want to wait two years before having a kid.'

"So nag-two years na kami, and we’re still waiting."

Richard revealed they almost thought it was time, "Na-delay na siya at one time 'tapos akala namin, yey, biglang after five days, no."

The Kapamilya performer wasn't shy to admit that he wanted a house full of kids, and had been somewhat looking forward to the thought of starting their family with twins.

But he knew his wife wanted it "one at a time."

Maricar said, "Gusto ko tutukan yung bata na isa, it’s just my bias.

"Pero when we were given twins, bakit hindi, di ba?"
