MANILA – Richard Gutierrez believes he is on the right track ever since he had girlfriend Sarah Lahbati and son Zion in his life.

In an interview with The Philippine Star, Gutierrez said he feels very fortunate to be with the two people he loves dearly.

“I think the more love you have in your heart, it will naturally push you in the right direction. So ganun 'yung nangyari sa akin,” he said. “Right now, I'm on the right direction. I'm very happy, I love baby Zion, I love Sarah.”

While their family recently made headlines following the Instragram post of Lahbati’s mom alleging she was unfairly treated during Zion’s first birthday party and dedication, Gutierrez said he has no time for negativity.

“I'm not spending time sa kahit anong negativity. I'm trying to move forward as a family,” he said.

On Wednesday, Gutierrez took to Instagram to say they all want to settle their family matters internally. The actor said he and Lahbati are also hoping to live harmoniously.

Meanwhile, Gutierrez shared he is lucky to have Lahbati as the mom of their son.

“Gaya ng sabi ko before, kami ni Sarah ine-enjoy namin ang parenthood kay Zion. Kaka-share pa lang namin kay Zion sa lahat. Ngayon pa lang namin naeenjoy yung relationship namin, 'yung bonding namin as parents kay Zion,” he said.

Asked what he likes the most about the actress, Gutierrez said, “I fell in love with her. And sometimes you can't explain that, ‘di ba.”

“We just really get along. Kumbaga, click kaming dalawa. Kahit anong bagay napaguusapan namin. We laugh at the same jokes. And Sarah's very passionate about life. She's very passionate about her craft as an artist. So, naattract ako sa kanya. And tugma kaming dalawa,” he added.
