Richard Gutierrez with his baby

The Iron Heart main star Richard Gutierrez is definitely more than just the iconic leading man we know and love because in the past decade, he is also the man of the house for his growing family with his beloved gorgeous wife Sarah Lahbati.

In the past six years that he’s been a Kapamilya, we have seen him portray a series of dominant and powerful characters in the teleseryes that he starred in – the “Supremo” of a coven of ruthless vampires in La Luna Sangre (2017), the wicked and treacherous Lito Valmoria in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano (2020), and the resolute and heroic Apollo Adelantar in the ongoing primetime action-drama series The Iron Heart.

Richard proves to be an actor as great as his peers, but we know one person that can undeniably overpower the actor — his adorable firstborn, Zion! Of course, just like every good dad does, his fatherly duties will always come first. However, it’s truly amazing that he’s still able to manage balancing his responsibilities at home with his commitments as an artist.

Every so often, we get to see photos of him with Zion or with their entire family on his official Instagram account, as he willingly shares to his fans and followers their ganaps at home, their thrilling and fun adventures and vacations, or just their adorable intimate moments together whenever the 38-year-old actor isn’t working and spending time with them. There were also instances when Richard would even bring the cuddly little one to work prior to the pandemic.

Now that Zion is turning 10 this year, let’s look back on some of their cute father-and-son moments that were caught on camera in this gallery!

Catch Richard on The Iron Heart, weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live and A2Z
