ACTOR RICHARD Gutierrez believes that he is ready for fatherhood but said marriage will come later.
In an exclusive interview with Queen of Talk Kris Aquino in "The Buzz 15" on Sunday, the 30-year-old actor said he is taking full responsibility of her girlfriend Sarah Lahbati and their son, Zion.
Gutierrez said that since they have discovered Lahbati's pregnancy in Paris France, up until she gave birth in Geneva, Switzerland, he was beside his ladylove.
He described their bond as "unbreakable" and said that the 20-year-old actress is "the one."
"I won't be spending my time with her if I feel like she's not the right person," he said.
When asked whether or not he will settle down, the actor said that they have already discussed it but both are keen to enjoy Zion's developing years and their respective showbiz careers.
"It's in the horizon but for now, it's very important also na kakabalik lang niya (Sarah) sa work and we are doing a reality show and we are enjoying our time having baby Zion. Doon muna kami naka-focus as of now. Everything will fall into place," he said.
"For me kasi, parang one major life decision at a time. 'Yung marriage, I believe it will come also at the right time," he added.
Meanwhile, the couple finally shared photos of their child on popular image-sharing mobile application, Instagram.
The actor uploaded several personal snaps of Zion for the first time since confirming on his family's reality show "It Takes Gutz To Be A Gutierrez" that he is now a proud father.
