Richard Gutierrez Admits Fathering A Child With Sarah LahbatiRichard Gutierrez admitted through the pilot episode of the six-part reality show "It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez" that he fathered a child with girlfriend Sarah Lahbati last year.
They earlier denied that Sarah was pregnant, and that was the reason why she went back home to Switzerland earlier last year. That and the fact that Sarah had a dispute with GMA management.
When asked about her pregnancy, Sarah neither confirmed nor denied the issue. She just said it wasn't the right time to talk about it.
Richard earlier promised to answer all the questions pertaining to Sarah's pregnancy on the first episode of their show. And true enough, he unequivocally said: "Yes, I’m a proud father."
"Now I think is the perfect time. Ayos na ngayon ang lahat ng kaguluhan sa side ni Sarah and GMA-7. Ngayon nakapag-move on na lahat so now is the perfect time to answer all the questions and sa reality show namin."
The Gutierrez family watched the pilot episode together. After Richard's admission, Sarah was teary-eyed and hugged her boyfriend. Ruffa caught this on camera and posted the photo on her Instagram account.
A few minutes after, Sarah also posted a photo of Richard's palm holding their baby's hand. Sarah said: "Extremely happy to announce the new member of our family, baby Zion."
Raymond promised to show Baby Zion on the next episode of the show, which will air on June 8 (Sunday).
