Entering the phase of parenthood is like God’s way of gifting you with all the happiness of the universe, all at once! The unimaginable joy of becoming accountable for someone’s life and giving him/her a larger part of your heart is something that you readily want to do. And Tinseltown’s hottie, Arjun Rampal and his ladylove, Gabriella Demetriades is currently going through the same phase. It was on April 23, 2019, when along with an official dating announcement, both Arjun and Gabriella shared with the world that they are now soon to become parents.

And almost three months later, July 18, 2019, Arjun Rampal and Gabriella Demetriades became mommy and daddy to an adorable baby boy. An Instagram story published by the overwhelmed father had a close-up of Arjun and his newborn son’s tiny hands as they held each other softly. He had written the words “Uffffff” along with an array of heart emojis atop the picture. Here, take a look:
Arjun Rampal had self-admittedly shared in an interview that the past 5 years of his life hasn’t been a cakewalk for him. But look what happens when you don’t let go of hope and persevere! Not only did the dapper 46-year-old find love once again after losing it, he became a proud daddy for the second time! But what’s keeping him busy these days? Well, as happy as Arjun might be currently because of his ‘just born’ baby boy, he is having a gala time chilling with his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades’ parents who are currently in town because of her delivery and the newborn baby. Shutterbugs captured Arjun, Gabriella and her parents on a dinner date at a posh Bandra restaurant as they looked all happy and full of smiles with one another.
Isn’t that amazing? Coming back to Gabriella’s delivery, a source had shared with the Mumbai Mirror, “Gabriella’s parents were there at the hospital Thursday morning, they left a little after noon, escorted by Arjun. His daughters were also by their father’s side the entire day. Gabriella will be discharged by Friday and Saturday.” (Must Read: Rannvijay Singha's Wife, Prianka Singha Shares Experience Of Breastfeeding Kainaat Singha In Public)
Well, to give you another latest update, hardly after 11 days after delivering her firstborn, Gabriella Demetriades looked ravishing as she had posted her weight change diaries during and after her pregnancy. Posting an Instagram story, Gabriella had shared a picture of herself during the final days of pregnancy and had written, “So this was me 3 weeks ago. A week before giving birth to my beautiful boy (almost 10 pounds of him) I had picked up 21 kgs in 9th month of pregnancy. This seems like a story everyone wants to hear. It was not easy to watch my body go through that, however, I trusted the process. I continued working out, not perhaps the same level of training I was used to but I worked out almost 5 days a week. I ate what I wanted but in moderation and I rested when my body told me to."
In yet another Instagram story, Gabriella Demetriades had talked about opting for the ‘natural way’ while delivering her baby and how she is now more concentrated on her baby's health than how she looked. She had further written, "I am blessed and grateful to have had a natural delivery and I have to say, the body is an amazing thing. I watched as I brought life into this world and I couldn’t care less about what I looked like doing it. We care so much about how we look and little about how we actually feel. 21 kgs heavier and I never felt better. All I really cared about is that my baby was happy and healthy. But now, I’m on the road to getting my old self back. I get asked all the time what my regime is, what I’m eating. What I’m doing."
And it was in the third Instagram story when Gabriella Demetriades had shared her final transformation and had written, "This photo was taken 11 days after delivery. It’s a long way from where it was but the body is an amazing thing. All I can say it, don’t stop your regime during pregnancy. Move, eat well and treat yourself every now and again. Prenatal yoga really helped keep my pelvic floor strong (Tanvi at Tangerine studio kept me calm and taught me to breathe). Also remember everyone is different and all good things do take time: so be patient with your body and your mind."

This is so cool! On July 28, 2019, newbie daddy, Arjun Rampal had taken to his Instagram handle and had posted another picture of his little cheesecake, finally sharing his unique name. He had written, "That gracious thing made of tears, of happiness, gratitude, and light. A rainbow appeared in our lives. So blessed we feel gratitude and abundance of joy. Welcome junior Rampal, into our lives. Thank you all for your graciousness, love and beautiful wishes. Say hello to baby Arik Rampal. #ArikRampal."
