Actor Richard Gutierrez expressed how proud he is of girlfriend Sarah Lahbati who became a mainstay of the Sunday variety show, ASAP 20.
Saying that he does not prohibit Sarah from doing sexy dance numbers on the show, Richard said, “Hindi naman. I’m very proud of her, actually. She’s worked hard and talagang shinarpen niya ‘yung skill niya sa dancing and she’s very happy with ASAP so I’m happy for her.”
Meanwhile, Richard also shared that it was during the advanced screening of TV5’s Ang Panday that their two-year-old son Zion got to watch him act onscreen for the first time.
“Very excited siya and kanina, talagang tutok na tutok siyang nanunuod. Talagang hindi nagrereact. Usually, ‘pag nanunuod kami ng sine ni Zion, magalaw, ang daming hinahanap or minsan, umaalis pero kanina, talagang nanunuod lang siya so mukhang nagustuhan niya,” he said, adding that his son has waited long to see his new show.
Is Zion aware that his parents are celebrities?
“Actually, si Zion, ngayon pa lang niya ako napanood sa TV (na umaarte). Usually, mga guesting ko, ganyan pero ‘yung nagportray ako ng isang character, ngayon lang niya napanood so feeling ko naninibago siya,” Richard said.
When asked for Sarah’s reaction to his new project, Richard, who earlier thanked his family for always supporting him through the ups and downs, said, “She’s happy. She seems happy.”
