ACTOR Richard Gutierrez finally broke his silence and confirmed earlier rumors that he already has a child with girlfriend Sarah Lahbati.

In the pilot episode of reality show "It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez," which aired on E! channel Sunday evening, the 30-year-old finally addressed the media speculation.

"A lot of people think that Sarah left the country because we are having a baby and she's pregnant. I just want to set the record straight and tell everyone that I'm a proud father of baby Zion," he said.

Richard said they found out about Sarah's pregnancy when they were in Paris, after doing primetime series "Makapiling Kang Muli." They then decided to keep the baby news within the family.

"We didn't want to make Sarah's pregnancy a tabloid circus. We get to share baby Zion to everyone with our own terms."

In prior interviews, the very private couple were cagey in answering questions about the rumored pregnancy. Sarah and Richard said there's proper time and venue to talk about this thing.

"It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez" airs every Sunday at 9 p.m. on E! channel. (Sunnex)
