Richard Gutierrez Says He And Sarah Lahbati Will Plan Their Wedding After Delivery Of Their Second Baby

RICHARD GUTIERREZ says his whole family is excited with the coming of his and Sarah Lahbati’s second child. “It’s going to be another boy and even my first born son, Zion, is excitedly waiting sa pagdating ng kapatid niya this March,” he says. “It’s because of the new baby that our wedding plans have to take a back seat after I’ve formally proposed to Sarah (Lahbati, his partner). Siempre, ang naging main focus muna namin is her pregnancy at yung pagdating ng bagong baby.”

So when will their wedding take place? “Siempre, we have to wait muna na naka-recover na si Sarah from her delivery at kapag medyo malaki-laki na rin yung baby. Hopefully, sooner than soon.”

Have they talked about the details of their wedding? “Wala pa. May nagsasabing gawin naming destination wedding, sa abroad na lang daw. Parang okay yun at napag-iisipan namin yung ganun, but we have to consult our parents din, kung anong magiging more convenient para sa kanila.”

He obviously enjoys being a father. “Of course! Fatherhood really changed me. It goes deep into your core at maaapektuhan talaga ang pagkatao mo kasi nagkaroon ka ng bago at higher purpose in life. Ang sarap ng feeling. I cannot verbalize it. Basta it makes me want to spend more time at home to be with my son, lalo na siguro ngayong magiging dalawa na sila. It really changes your outlook at bumalik yung energy ko sa pagtatrabaho after kong ma-burn out.”

It helps, of course, that he got a very demanding role as the anti-hero, Sandrino, in “La Luna Sangre” that will end its 10-month telecast this Friday evening. “Yes. Dahil kay Sandrino, nagkaroon ng bagong dimension ang career ko. Kung dati, puro good boy roles lang ang ginagawa ko, this showed na puede ako sa bida-kontrabida roles and it’s very satisfying for any actor who wants to be taken more seriously in his craft. And I promise you, ‘La Luna Sangre’ and Sandrino will both go out with a big bang. Hindi nyo basta makakalimutan ang pagtatapos ng show.”
