Richard Gu­tier­rez anAfter their son Zion turned three this year, Richard Gu­tier­rez and Sarah Lah­bati both ad­mit that they have no plans to add an­other baby to their brood un­til their son is a lit­tle bit older. “No baby plans. Not at the mo­ment. We’re con­cen­trat­ing on Zion as of now. When it comes to par­ent­ing we’re just learn­ing as we go along. Of course we still have a lot to learn as par­ents but I think what’s most im­por­tant is your bond with your child and the amount of love that you show your child. So we’re just learn­ing along the way and we try to bring him on ev­ery trip that we can be­cause we love trav­el­ing. It’s kind of dif­fi­cult now to travel be­cause there’s a kind of a whole gang with us but we try to do our best just to spend time with Zion,” Richard ad­mit­ted.

Richard said that he does not want to think about his son join­ing show­biz just yet. "I think it’s too early. Com­mer­cials are fine be­cause he seems to en­joy do­ing that and we want him to con­cen­trate on his stud­ies, our fam­ily bond­ing. We’ll see where we’ll go in a few years,” he said.

When it comes to par­ent­ing and time man­age­ment, Sarah said that she is usu­ally the dis­ci­plinar­ian in the fam­ily. "Most of the time I’m the bad cop (laughs). Richard is the one who spoils Zion. Of course he tells Zion ‘no’ but most of the time I’m the one who tells Zion to time out and those kinds of things. And I think it’s al­ways like that be­cause it’s the mom who dis­ci­plines and the dad who spoils but I try to find the bal­ance be­tween spoil­ing and dis­ci­plin­ing. When it comes to time man­age­ment, well first of all we make it a pri­or­ity to spend time to­gether as a pri­or­ity. We make Zion our pri­or­ity,” she ex­plained.

For the hol­i­days, Sarah said there will be a lot of fam­ily time with the Gu­tier­rezes. “We’re go­ing out of town. We’re go­ing to hang out at the beach and just spend some good qual­ity time with ev­ery­one kasi it’s hard to get ev­ery­one to­gether. Ev­ery­body’s work­ing so it’s go­ing to be a spe­cial Christ­mas for sure,” she said.d Sarah Lah­bati on par­ent­ing: ‘We still have a lot to learn”
