With a newborn on the way, Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez’s firstborn, Zion, will become a big brother soon.
Sarah and Richard do not want him to feel left out, so they make sure that he is always a part of the conversation.
"He feels like he’s part of something big and something exciting," Sarah told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and a small group of reporters at her baby shower on Sunday, January 7, in Rockwell, Makati.
"He is very understanding… he feels like a brother already."
As a soon-to-be mother of two, Sarah wanted to make sure that Zion won’t feel like he will be put aside when his baby brother, Kai, arrives.
On Instagram, the 24-year-old Kapamilya star wrote a touching post to her firstborn.
Part of her caption read, "The day you came into my life, I knew what my purpose was… to love and protect with everything I have.
"And with your little baby brother Kai arriving soon, I promise to do the same for him, give my all, love unconditionally, and protect the both of you without ever making you feel left out or unappreciated.”
ANOTHER BABY BOY. From the moment Sarah learned that she was pregnant, the celebrity mom admitted that she hoped it was going to be another boy.
Sarah remarked, "From the very beginning kasi sabi ko sa sarili ko, 'If I have a girl, mas protective ako.'
"Mas marami akong iniisip kasi, siyempre, kapag teenager na siya, di ba?
"So, naii-stress na ako kapag girl.
"So sabi ko, the day I found I was pregnant, I want a boy para, of course, may kalaro si Zion.
"Pero for me, ha, of course, it’s different for all other pregnant women—for me, in my case, mas madaling alagaan ang boy."
So when she and Richard found out that they were indeed expecting another boy, she felt "very happy."
