ASAP 20 mainstay Sarah Lahbati said that she is very proud of boyfriend Richard Gutierrez who has a new teleserye on TV 5.
She also shared how their two-year-old son Zion reacted when he got to see his father act for the first time on the big screen during the advanced screening of Ang Panday last week. “Medyo na-weirduhan siya na katabi niya ‘yung tatay niya tapos pinapanood din niya ‘yung tatay niya. Pero nagustuhan niya, he was really fixated on the screen and at one point, parang he was staring at Chard and then looking at the screen again. Parang why do I have two dads? But seems like he likes it. He was very concentrated on the screen,” she narrated.
Since both Richard and Sarah are working, how do they spend their family time? “Sa ngayon, hindi pa ako nagtetaping (for a teleserye in ABS-CBN). Nagbreak kami sa taping which is good, I get to spend time with my family… ‘Pag walang taping si Chard, he makes sure that he spends time with us,” she answered.
Considering that Sarah does sexy dance numbers on ASAP 20 and Richard has three leading ladies in his new show, how do they approach this matter? Laughing at first, she said, “Well, he has three leading ladies so it’s a tie. No, it’s just part of our job. Hindi na bago na magkakaroon kami ng kanya-kanyang partners or scenes na ayaw naming necessarily panoorin, so naiintindihan na namin and hindi siya malaking issue because we understand that it’s one of the jobs (of actors).”
Likewise, in a separate interview with the press, Richard said that he is supportive and happy for Sarah’s career.
When Sarah was asked how happy she feels right now, she said, “Very, very satisfied, happy and #blessed.”
