In all their interviews and posts on their social media accounts, Precious Lara Quigaman and husband Marco Alcaraz have always moved us with how they sweetly they express their love for each other. They have been married for almost a decade now but we clearly see how they still treat each other like newlyweds.
It was in 2007 when the 2005 Miss International titleholder and the hunk actor, model and varsity basketball player met through their common friend, Valerie Concepcion. Marco revealed that he immediately had a crush on Lara the moment he first saw her on television. When they got closer, Lara and Marco eventually began exclusively dating in 2009. They officially became a couple in 2010 and shortly after their engagement in 2011, the two tied the knot in a civil wedding ceremony in Vancouver, Canada.
Although they were already married, Lara and Marco walked the aisle once more in the Philippines in a Christian ceremony. They had a garden themed wedding at Hacienda Isabella in Tagaytay City on July 2012. A month before that, Lara described that Marco came into her life at the “perfect time”. In an interview with King of Talk Boy Abunda in Bandila, Lara shared: "'Nung dumating si Marco sa buhay ko, sobrang perfect timing na alam ko na talaga, kahit nanliligaw pa lang siya -- iba na 'to, siya 'yung sagot ni Lord sa prayer ko. He is more than I asked for."
Now, Lara and Marco have a blissfully growing family. Lara gave birth to their first-born Noah Lamar in November 2012, while their second child Tobias Nolan was born last September 2018.
Having two kids and being married for nearly a decade, Lara still dearly describes Marco as her “answered prayer”. In her Instagram post to mark her husband’s birthday, she posted a photo of them laughing together on a seashore while Marco was carrying her in a piggyback position. She tells on her caption:
“Every year when someone asks Marco how old he is, he would say '28'. I have been married to this man for almost 9 years, been with him for 10 and I still don't understand why he doesn't like admitting his real age... Oh my love, it doesn't matter how old you are because you, to me- look as handsome as the day I met you- no scratch that -you look better- so much more handsome now than you did the first day I met you and I love you more and more each day. Sometimes I even catch myself staring at you and can't imagine spending this life with anyone else and I just thank God He gave you to me. To my Answered Prayer, Happy Birthday... may our good God keep you all the days of your life. We love you kahit #29yearsold kana @marcoalcaraz #pengepera”
Indeed, Lara and Marco Alcaraz are such #CoupleGoals. Feel their abundant love for each other in the above photos!
