Her character Ina in the well-loved primetime series May Bukas Pa may be a vagrant as she wanders from place to place and lives by begging. And, she may have lost her dearest best friend who took care of her when her parents died, but in real life, actress Maricar Reyes has already found the path to forever with her husband Richard Poon.
While achieving a “happily ever after” is deemed unlikely for couples who are both in show business, they’re one of those pairs who are able to prove that it is still possible since they have been married for six years now and are about to mark their seventh anniversary this coming June 9!
Maricar and Richard first met in the music video shoot of the latter’s single “You And I” in 2009, wherein she was his leading lady. In their first interview together in the now-defunct morning talk show Kris TV in 2012, Richard said that he purposefully distanced himself from her since their first encounter until they bumped into each other again at the Star Magic Ball in 2010 and eventually became good friends. And the rest, as they say, is history.
As many perceive their marriage as perfect or all sunshines and rainbows, the couple has been open in their media interviews that they, too, have their own share of misunderstandings. But those didn’t stop them from loving one another.
“COMMAND. Leadership. Excellence. Ambition. Honesty...and... CUTENESS 😍 No matter how many times we fight (and our mentors know this best) my admiration for who you are grows every year. Because of you, we never stop learning & improving. With you, im not afraid of growing old. Our home is honest and fun because of your leadership. After 6 years, Im so happy you are so fond of me because i still deeply admire you (sic),” she wrote in the caption of one of her posts on Instagram.
Sweet, isn’t it? But you’ll surely get more kilig once you see their lovely photos together in this gallery!
