SHOWBIZ couple Richard Gutierrez and Sarah Lahbati are not joining the marriage bandwagon just yet.

“We are slowly planning things. We don’t want to rush things. We want to focus on Zion kasi he’s growing so fast,” Sarah said.

Sarah added that their top priority is Zion followed by their respective showbiz careers. She’s also grateful that work does not limit her time with her son.

I try to spend as much time with Zion kasi ang bilis niyang lumaki. Binibigay ko ‘yung schedule ko, ‘yung free time ko lagi kay Zion. Kailangan andoon kami (ni Richard) to see him,” she said.

Sarah also said that she has a very supportive partner in Richard.

We respect each other. As long as ikakaganda ng career niya, ikakaganda ng career ko, we don’t try to hinder each other from growing and having better careers. He makes sure that whatever work I’m doing, it’s classy and karespe-respeto, just like any partner would do to her,” he said.

The 21-year-old is also thankful that projects are still pouring in.

“This is what I enjoy and this is what I love doing (acting). I’m grateful that I am back working again and doing what I love most. I just try to balance my personal and professional life,” he said.(MNS)
