Love Actually: Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez, Setting the Bar for Modern Parenthood

I think we can all agree that Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez make one good-looking couple. And just by looking at their photos, seeing how in love they are and seems to be falling in love with each other more and more every day, we can't help but ask ourselves "When will I find the Sarah or Richard of my life?".

Busy as they are with their work (Sarah is now a mainstay on ASAP as one of its resident dance goddess and Richard is busy with his acting projects) they never fail to keep that work-play-rest balance everyone needs in life. And that may just be the secret to their happy relationship. And with the arrival of baby Zion in their life, their relationship as a couple has only become stronger, as they get to bond over a new hobby that is parenting.



Work, work, work. Having that creative outlet and being able to do the things they love to do when they were still single is important for most couples, and Sarah and Richard are no exception. They support each other’s careers as can be seen on their Instagram accounts promoting each other’s projects, even though they’re from rival networks. Even baby Zion gets to work, too! Cute!

Play harder. When you’re all about work and don’t know how to have fun, that’s when the issue of lacking time for each other comes in. And Sarah and Richard sure know the importance of quality time. Their idea of fun? Traveling!



Rest. At the end of the day, we all seek that quiet time with our family at home where couples get to talk, catch up with each other’s work, hang out with their kids, and reflect on the week or months that have been, and do it all over again.
