Maricar, Richard don't want to have kids yet

MANILA – Newly weds Maricar Reyes and Richard Poon do not want to have children just yet. In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News’ Korina Sanchez, Reyes said they just want to enjoy each other’s company first before starting a family. “We want to know each other na kami na lang dalawa muna. Ideally, we’d like a year together at least,” she said. Poon and Reyes first met each other back in 2009 when the singer’s manager invited the actress to be part of Poon’s music video. Since then, the two began dating until they finally got engaged in 2012. The celebrity couple tied knot via a Christian wedding that was held at the Belleview Hotel in Alabang lasy Sunday. The event was only attended by the couple’s close family and friends. According to Poon, it was his idea to just keep the wedding small gathering. “We designed it that way. We talked to a lot of couples and they said, ‘You either go big or small. Huwag kang middle. We chose the small group,” he said. Saying he has attended and performed in a lot of weddings, Poon said: “Sometimes I look at the couple and alam ko 'yung ilang nila na maybe a hundred of those guests are business partners of their relatives pero alam kong hindi sila masyadong kumportable kasi hindi nila masyado kilala.” Poon and Reyes said they wanted the occasion to be solemn and intimate. Asked what for her the most memorable part of wedding is, Reyes said: “Ang dami. Gusto ko 'yung pagdating ko sa altar tapos he shook my parents hands tapos nag-kiss siya sa mom and dad ko tapos nag-join na kami sa altar.” She added: “Doon lang naging real. During preparations kasi, may fittings, may make up, I felt na para lang akong nagtratrabaho. Yung brain ko minsan iniisip niya na work lang. It really dawned on me lang talaga nung binigay na ako sa altar.” Poon, on the other hand, said his favorite moment was when Reyes emerged and was revealed in the ceremony. “The music was right. Somebody whispered at my back, best man ko yata, sabi ‘Chard parang anghel na pumapasok.’ I was looking at her walking down the aisle, sobrang ganda niya,” he said. Considering himself “very lucky,” Poon vowed he will forever take care of Reyes, as expressed in the lyrics of the song during their first dance. “First dance namin was ‘I’ll Take Care of You.’ It means a lot sa kanya kasi siyempre all girls naman are looking for that one guy who not just loves them but will stay and take care of them. Because women are naturally magaling mag-alaga ng lalaki so naghahanap din kayo ng mag-aalaga,” he said.
