Richard and Sarah’s skills unlocked
The COVID-19 lockdown was a period of self-discovery for Richard Gutierrez and his wife Sarah Lahbati.
“We realized that we were also capable of becoming teachers,” said Richard. Their eldest son, Zion, 7, had to stop going to school abruptly in March because the government ordered a lockdown to help curb the spread of the deadly virus.
Character traits unlocked
“Sarah’s patience was really put to the test, especially during the ECQ (enhanced community quarantine). She had to teach Zion his remaining lessons,” Richard shared with Inquirer Entertainment. “She also got better at cooking. We had several character traits that got unlocked after our wedding and during the quarantine.”
Richard and Sarah tied the knot in a civil ceremony on March 14.
The government’s stay-at-home order has helped Richard appreciate his time with his family even more. “Never take it for granted,” he declared. He and Sarah also have a 2-year-old son, Kai.
Also as a result of the lockdown, the actor said he had to buy exercise equipment for cardio and lifting weights.
“Sarah and I did yoga together. We pushed each other to become more fit,” Richard said.
