After his proposal to Sarah Lahbati in Switzerland, Richard Gutierrez explained why there was an unexpected delay in their wedding plans. “I proposed to her three years ago tapos we were supposed to get married na and then baby Kai came along so everything got delayed so now we’re finally doing it next year (laughs). Hindi naman pressure kasi we’ve been wanting to have a wedding for a while now so we’re kind of looking forward to it and we’re excited about it. It’s just kind of hard, mahirap pala mag-organize. Hindi naman mahirap pero madaming details,” he shared during the launch of his personally designed Kiehls Made Better products for the benefit of the Save Philippine Seas movement last July 18 in Greenbelt, Makati.
As a devoted father of two young boys, Richard said he and Sarah have not yet made plans if they want a bigger family but they are not closing their doors on the possibility. “I don’t know yet (about another baby) but t’s too early to tell (laughs). I think it’s just a natural change. You hear it all the time, when you become a dad you’re going to change and all that stuff but until you become a parent then that’s when you’re going to know,” he said.
The new Kiehls Philippines ambassador said that he is excited to work on two new major projects this year. “I have a teleserye on the line right now and a movie and you’re going to hear about it soon. It’s going to be with Bea Alonzo. It’s going to be our first time working together. I’m super excited. Actually I learned about it last year pa. Medyo na-delay lang ng na-delay so pinapaganda pa yung script. But now it’s happening soon so very exciting. Tapos na yung development of story. We’re going to start filming na,” he said.
Even though they do not personally know each other, Richard said that he looks forward to working with the talented actress. “I met her a few times. We’re not really friends friends but you know every time I see her she’s super nice. She’s like easy to talk to and easy to get along with. And recently we’ve seen each other more often. We did training together, we did a few things together. We’ve hung out a few times now,” he added.
