Just shortly after their engagement, Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati announced that baby no. 2 is on the way.
In the September 18 episode of the reality show It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez on the E! channel, Richard revealed how he had an inkling Sarah was pregnant.
“A few weeks ago I had a suspicion. I noticed Sarah becoming moody, eating, she’s always tired, she wants to rest all the time. So I noticed something different with her. I knew deep down, this is it, we’re gonna have another baby,” he shared.
Richard and Sarah eventually went to the doctor, who confirmed that the latter is pregnant. However, because of the baby’s low heartbeat, they were advised not to announce just yet that they’re going to have another baby. A few weeks after, they were finally given the go signal to share with the family as the baby’s condition has become more stable.
“It’s a new chapter in our lives and it’s going to be a fun nine months. It’s exciting times for us,” Richard remarked.
The couple’s family members were very happy to learn that Sarah was 7 weeks pregnant. At first, they were all surprised, with Richard’s mom Anabelle Rama even mentioning how Sarah wanted to continue working, but the couple believes it is the right time for them to have a new member of the family.
“I don’t feel like having another baby when I’m already 35,” Sarah stated.
Zion, their firstborn was ecstatic with the news and even said he wants 20 more baby brothers and sisters.
Richard and Sarah have also decided to push back their wedding date, with the former explaining that he doesn’t want his fiancée getting all stressed with the preparations.
“We are so excited, you know Zion is 4 years old now, it’s the perfect time to have a second child, and enjoy the process again of having a baby. There’s a new Gutz coming into town, so I’m very excited. I feel very blessed,” Richard said.
The two stars have already been together for five years.
