A week after getting married at a low-key ceremony in Alabang, actress Maricar Reyes revealed in an interview on Sunday talk show The Buzz that her husband, singer Richard Poon, asked for her hand in marriage only a month after they officially became a couple in 2012.

“We were having dinner and then tamang tama nag-CR ang mommy niya tapos sumama si Maricar. I was scared. Sabi ko, ‘Tito, gusto ko lang po sabihin na I want to ask your permission na ligawan si Maricar. For marriage na ang intention ko po (We were having dinner, and then just in time, Maricar and her mom went to the restroom. I was scared. I said, ‘I want to ask your permission to court Maricar with the intention of marrying her’),’” Richard was quoted by ABS-CBNNews.com as telling host Boy Abunda, adding that he was expecting Mr. Reyes to be protective of his daughter after she got involved in a video scandal a few years back.

“I’ve heard that he would be very protective of Maricar [because] of what happened. I want to assure him na, ‘Tito I’m not playing around. I’m not going to play around with your daughter,’” Richard continued. “He was very cool. Super cool 'yung dad niya. Sabi niya, ‘Oh really? Okay.’ He took it well. Parang alam na niya eh (Her dad is super cool. He said, ‘Oh, really? Okay.’ He took it well. It was like he already knew.).”

Maricar’s mother, on the other hand, was reportedly overjoyed by the good news.

“My mom, she’s this jolly person so she’s so happy. I think every parent would want their kids to end up happy with someone they love. He’s a very welcome addition to the family,” Maricar said.


The actress also shared what made her love her new husband.

“He is the most unique gift I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” she said. “He really gets into your heart and he sees you for who you are. And he helps you fix your problem. He goes to the positive and how to overcome it.”
