Richard Gutierrez is definitely one of the most handsome and sought-after leading man and actors in the show business industry today. He was admired by many not just because of his good looks and physical features but because of his lovely family. He and his partner for six years, actress and model Sarah Lahbati are blessed to have two children: Zion was born in 2013 while Kai was born in 2018.
Richard recently shared about his parenting style that he gets from his father, veteran actor Eddie Gutiérrez. “Saktong strict lang. Bina-balanse din namin. Yung dad ko kasi very relax siya. He lets us be who we wanna be and lets us play. Gano’n. Hindi siya sobrang strict. Pero pag lumampas ka na doon, pag nag-overboard ka na sa kanya, dini-discipline ka din niya. Parang gusto ko gano’n din ’yung style ko.”, he quipped.
He was also very grateful to the experiences he learned and he is still learning in his fatherhood journey. “Siguro, I can say that throughout the years, nag-level-up ’yung parenting skills ko. Pero every day is still a learning experience. I’m still learning every day about fatherhood. And it’s a constant journey and constant learning. Pero I’m enjoying every process of it.”
The 34-year-old actor also shared that fatherhood is his priority right now.
”Fatherhood means everything to me. That’s my number on priority right now. Trying to be the best that I can be to my kids.”, he revealed.
He is not just an admirable father to his children but a loving partner to his fiancée, Sarah Lahbati. “Nagiging stronger ’yung relationship namin ni Sarah. We’re growing together, we’re learning things together, so it’s good for us. It’s making our bond even stronger. Every day, he says, they wake up early to bring Zion to school, as the little boy is in pre-school now.”, he revealed.
“Pag walang work, Sarah and I go to the gym together. We work out together. Then we pick up Zion. Or we just out at home, go to the park. It depends. It really depends. Pag ako wala akong work, I always spend it with my family.”, he added.
