 Later, maybe, when Wylie is older, if she expresses such a wish, we would get married for daughter. Unless Apryl and I make the decision before then.

As of now, Richard and Apryl are living separately as Apryl got wifed up by her husband, Jim. However, Richard remains single and is working as a catalyst for carving his daughter's career in the realm of acting and production.
