Richard Gutierrez And Sarah Lahbati Are Not Ready To Settle Down YetRichard Gutierrez admitted he and girlfriend Sarah Lahbati are discussing marriage, although they are not going to do it in the near future. Richard said they are focused on their baby, Zion, for now.
His mother and father, Annabella Rama and Eddie Gutierrez, took nine years before tying the knot. They lived in first. Richard said the circumstances are different with Sarah because she became pregnant first.
Annabelle also said it would be better for them to live in together before marrying each other because they are still young and they must focus first on their careers.
"Hindi natin masasabi, ayoko rin pangunahan, ‘di ba?" Richard said he and Sarah are busy of thinking about Zion's future--where he will go to school, etc.
He and Sarah have a strong relationship. Both their families support them and their relationship.
Richard said this is the happiest time of his life because they are now able to share Zion to the world. He was excited on Sunday morning for Zion's party.
Is he ready to accept endorsements for Zion? Maybe, Richard said, adding that the time will come for him to decide if he will allow Zion to enter showbiz in the future.
Richard wrote a letter for Zion on the day of the party. He even asked someone to write down his thoughts because he was never a good writer.
Earlier, Annabelle said that Sarah is just like her because she's a jealous type. Richard agreed that Sarah may be a little bit like his mother. As for him, Richard said he might be like his father--cool.
He wants to be like his father--who let his children decide for themselves.
According to Richard, it's a different feeling to be a father. He had many accomplishments in television and in movies, but this topped all of that.
They don't regret delaying Zion's introduction to the world. The reality show, "It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez," is the perfect platform to share Zion.
It was a coincidence that Richard announced Zion in the reality show. That time, he was thinking how to do it--will he call for a press conference? Will he do a one-on-one interview? "Hanggang sa nagkaroon ng opportunity na nag-tie up kami with E! And along the way, naisip ko na puwedeng dito na natin i-share, kasi reality ‘to, ito ang buhay natin."
Richard and Raymond are twins. Does he want to have twins too? "That would be nice," he said.
Meanwhile, he shared how difficult it is to host a children's party than an adult's party. In an adult party, all that is needed are drinks, pica-pica and music.
But with children's party, they need to have games, programs, designs, etc. Annabelle was the one tasked to manage the food while Sarah and Richard were in charge of the games, program and souvenirs.
They had a jungle theme for the party.
As a family, they also had to choose who Zion's godparents will be. Most of those were their close friends or family members.
They also chose those who are "movers and shakers" of his generation, some of whom are Richard's idols like Richard Gomez and Aga Muhlach.
