Richard Poon plans to have a baby next year


100414-richard_main.jpgRichard Poon shared the reason why he did not rush into having a baby with wife Maricar Reyes. In an interview at the media launch of his new album titled Crooner Sings Bacharach, the singer relayed, “I want to give her one to two years na siya lang. From married couples, they tell us na kapag nagkaanak ka raw, nagiging child-centered ‘yung marriage which is I think dapat wife-centered muna.”

But as that they are approaching their second year as a married couple in 2015, Richard and Maricar are planning to have a baby next year. "This is our one-and-a-half going into two years so I have until June next year for our second year so let's see. Hopefully next year magka-baby na."

Richard shared that his wife Maricar will be taking the time off from doing teleseryes after Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon so that they can focus on their family life. "We already agreed na after nito, there were some offers for another teleserye but we had to turn it down kasi mabigat talaga 'yung taping ng teleserye,” he said.

Nonetheless, according to Richard, Maricar will still do guest appearances in soaps and will try to do indie films.  "She will still accept roles, may gagawin siya na indie film din so pwede naman ‘yun so she will continue doing movies and mga appearances sa Be Careful With My Heart ‘yung mga labas pasok lang, wala na ‘yung tipong months of [taping]."

Richard praised Maricar's performance in Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon. “Lagi kong sinasabi sa kanya na she's a natural [actress]. Masipag siya manood ng movies para mag-aral ng acting. Bilib na bilib ako sa kanya. At alam kong ako ang opposite sa kanya, hindi ako marunong umarte, kinakabahan ako sa camera. She's a natural.”

He stressed that Maricar's character in the primetime soap is far from his wife’s character in real life.  “When you know her personally, it's so opposite of who she is. ‘Yung mga tao na lang nagbabalita sa akin kung ano ang nangyayari. She has the ability to be supportive and at the same time correct me, pero the way she lifts me up is very positive. I think that's quite rare. She's very positive. Wala siyang mean words. She's very, very nice.”
