Maricar Reyes revealed that she and her husband, singer Richard Poon, have been trying to have kids since the second year of their marriage, but she stressed that she is at “peace” despite having none yet.

Reyes opened up about this after actress-vlogger Rica Peralejo asked if the couple plans on having children, as seen on the latter’s YouTube channel yesterday, Sept. 11.

“After two years nung kinasal kami — we really planned on not having kids for the first two years — after that pwede na,” Reyes said. “We even got checked. There’s no problem with him and there’s no problem with me. Feeling ko we did our due diligence naman on our side, humanly possible, pero wala e.”

(After two years when we got married — we really planned on not having kids for the first two years — we [already tried] after that. We even got checked. There’s no problem with him and there’s no problem with me. I feel like we did our due diligence, [what is] humanly possible, but we still have no child.)

When asked if she gets envious of other couples who have children, Reyes stated she does not feel such because she tries to find acceptance in every situation.

“Meron lang talaga kong peace na kung meron, OK, kung wala, OK. It doesn’t make me feel like I’m less of a person or I’m less of a female,” she added. “Kung wala, wala e. Ginawa mo naman ‘yung part mo e and I rest on that.”

(I just have peace about the fact that I am  OK whether I will be [given kids] or not. It does not make me feel like I am less of a person or I am less of a female. If there really would be none, then so be it. [I] already did [my] part and I rest on that.)

Reyes and Poon got married in 2013. They celebrated their ninth anniversary last June. JB
