Maricar not pregnant but Richard wants twins
|Celebrity couple Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes|
MANILA – Kapamilya crooner Richard Poon denied reports that his wife, actress Maricar Reyes, is already pregnant.
However, he admitted that he would like to have a baby with Reyes 18 months from now.
"Hindi totoo 'yun na buntis daw si M.R. Pero kung mabuntis siya, okay lang, ready naman kami. Ang plano namin is to have a baby maybe a year and a half from now,” he told entertainment website Pep.ph.
Asked whether he wants a boy or a girl as his first child, Poon said he actually likes to have twins.
“Ako both, lalaki at babae sana. Kapag sinasabi ko nga, 'Hon, puwede bang twins?' sasabihin niya, 'Huwag, ayaw ko niyan, hindi ko kaya!' Joke lang naman 'yun pero sana may isang boy, may isang girl. Kasi kami ganun, may isang lalaki at isang babae,” he said.
However, Poon said he was told by some of their friends that they should enjoy their first year as a couple first before they finally decide to have children.
"Advice 'yun ng mga married women sa akin. 'Don’t let Maricar mawala ang atensiyon sa kanya, huwag agad sa bata. Give her at least a year and a half para ma-enjoy niya na siya 'yung center ng marriage mo. Siya 'yung inaalagaan, inaasikaso,'" he said.
Almost three months since they tied the knot, Poon said he is still discovering a lot of things about his wife.
“Hanggang ngayon, may nadi-discover pa rin akong bago sa kanya. Sa pagkain, ayaw niya ng itlog. Napakasimple, di ba? Ako, mahilig ako sa mga egg, ayaw niya. Ayaw niya ng okra, gustung-gusto ko ng okra. So 'yun pa lang, ang dami ko nang nalalaman sa kanya,” he said.
Poon also said he is absolutely enjoying his married life with Reyes.
"Ako, I try my best lang na maglagay ng tamang pundasyon kasi alam mo naman ang pag-aasawa, pareho kayong different na tao. Minsan magkakatampuhan kayo, hindi magkaintindihan, pero you’re trying to work it out," he said.
