Celebrity couple Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez announced their engagement in July of last year. While the two have been a couple for years and are already expecting their second son, Sarah was thrilled when Richard finally popped the question. However, it was six months after the fact when the actress finally let fans have a look at her now-fiancé’s romantic proposal.
In a blog entry on her website, Sarah shared how Richard prepared for her dream proposal.
The actress wrote:
“Out of all the stories we’ve created together over the past few years, my favorite by far is when you proposed to me just because it was so unexpected. I was wondering why you were taking a really long time setting up your tripod and camera… little did I know, you were about to propose.”
According to the giddy model, Richard proposed during their vacation to Zermatt, Switzerland. Sarah said they had spent a lovely day with their son, Zion, when her then-boyfriend proposed to her.
Richard then took her to a helicopter ride above Zermatt, but not before they bought champagne and chocolates to celebrate their engagement.
“I was literally on cloud nine. What a man. What a day. I can’t express how I felt at the time; I felt too many things to be written into words. I just knew I was the happiest girl ever. And yes, I was without any hesitations, ready to spend forever with you.”
