Sarah Lahbati Talks About Her Pregnancy And The Name Of Her And Fiancé Richard Gutierrez's Second Baby Gutz
Last weekend, Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez celebrated the upcoming arrival of their second baby boy! The whole Gutierrez clan, Sarah’s family, and their close friends gathered to welcome Baby Gutz, who is ready to greet the world in two months’ time!
Even though the actress admits she easily gets tired now that she’s in her third trimester, it didn’t show the whole afternoon of the party. If anything, she is glowing, and obviously, it is because of the happiness she feels for this new blessing in their lives.
During the event, Sarah gamely shared updates about her pregnancy—from preparing to be a mother of two boys to how she is sharing her motherhood experiences via her blog:
On having another baby boy: “I’m really happy kasi eto ‘yung gusto ko from the very beginning. The day I found out I was pregnant, sabi ko, I want a boy para rin may kalaro si Zion.” ("I'm really happy because this is what I wanted from the very beginning. The day I found out I was pregnant, I told myself, I want a boy so that Zion can also have a playmate.")
On what she learned about herself during her second pregnancy: “I think, now, I’m more knowledgeable. I have less questions and doubts about what I am doing, so I guess it’s easier that way. And also, don’t sweat the small stuff. I’m a mother already with Zion, an actress, a fiancée, a daughter, I work and I think about so many things. So if it’s not important, I don’t stress about it.”
On Richard’s role during this pregnancy: “He’s very supportive. He’s always there when he’s not taping. And he’s always encouraging me to talk to the baby, to make the baby listen to music, things like that.”
On how Zion is taking the new baby news: “He’s excited. Whenever we have a conversation about this baby, we make sure he’s included in the conversation, and that he feels he’s part of something big and exciting.”
On Baby Gutz’s nickname: “We have a nickname: Kai. It means ocean. I mean, both of us are scuba divers and we always travel and try to visit our beautiful islands. We love the ocean.”
On blogging about her experiences as a mom: “I get to talk about things that I’m going through in my blog and share my struggles and experiences. To know that there are also other women who experience what I’m going through helps me at the same time. It’s really nice to have this website where I can have an open conversation with women.”
