How life changes in a year, right? One year you think about ‘I guess I’ll be doing this by then’, the next year comes by in the blink of an eye and bam! You end up doing exactly what you had thought a year back! Yesterday (August 15, 2019), was a special day for all Indians. Independence Day and Raksha Bandhan coincided with each other, which in turn, meant double celebrations for us. For some, the celebration was triple as many star kids arrived just in time to celebrate their first-ever Raksha Bandhan and the Rampal family was surely in a complete state of bliss!

Arjun Rampal and his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades welcomed their lovechild, Arik Rampal on July 18, 2019. The duo is already seen breezing through their phase of parenthood and often share close-ups of their son, Arik on social media. Hardly a week back, Gabriella had taken to her Instagram story and had posted the first full-length proper side glimpse of their newborn son. The little one was cuddled in his mommy's arms and we can say without an iota of doubt that he is extremely adorable! In the picture, atop her little baby, Gabriella had written, “Little smalls” and beneath her image, she had written, “I am a snack”.
Not even a month old, Arik Rampal celebrated his first Raksha Bandhan with his half-sisters, Mahikaa Rampal and Myra Rampal yesterday. His mommy, Gabriella Demetriades took to her Instagram story and shared a drool-worthy image of Arik’s half-sisters peeking at their half-brother lovingly. She wrote the words, “@arikrampal119’s first Raksha @rampal172” atop the picture. While Arik’s face was concealed with an Instagram sticker which read “King”, it is through the very picture that we got a peek-a-boo of Arik’s royal, blue baby cot! Here, take a look at the same here:

Arjun Rampal had just started to introduce his new ladylove, South African supermodel and actress, Gabriella Demetriades to all his fans when his April 23, 2019 post had surprised all. ‘Arjun Rampal is all set to embrace fatherhood once again in his life', it meant. Sharing an adorable picture of himself and his girlfriend, Gabriella, the Rock On! actor had written, “Blessed to have you and start all over again... thank you baby for this baby". Gabriella too had posted the same picture and had written, "Grateful for you two can’t wait to meet you." Take a look at the picture below:
As soon as Arjun Rampal had shared the picture with his then heavily pregnant girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades, tonnes of congratulatory messages from fans and his friends from the industry had started to pour in. This had made us wonder if his estranged wife, Mehr Jesia and his two beautiful teenage daughters, Mahikaa and Myra knew about the same. As per a Mumbai Mirror report, Mehr had taken the news of her ex-hubby, Arjun embracing fatherhood again in a positive stride. The report had stated, “The couple did their best to keep the pregnancy under wraps for the last six months. It turns out that several of their friends were kept in the dark too, including Mehr Jesia, Rampal’s wife of 20 years and mum to their two daughters, Mahikaa, 17, and Myra, 13.”
The report had further added, “Mehr has in fact taken the news rather sportingly. Her friends say that even though they haven’t filed for divorce yet, Mehr has come to terms with the fact that Rampal has moved on personally.” A friend close to Mehr had shared with the same tabloid, “They are still working out the financial terms of the separation. Mehr is a wonderful mother and wants to do what works best for her children.” (Also Read: 15 Bollywood And TV Celebrities Who Are An Exact Copy Of Their Sibling That It Is Unbelievable)
Arjun Rampal, in an interview, had once talked about fatherhood. The Ra.One actor had said, “I used to think I’d be that father who’ll sit with a shotgun at the doorstep. But both of them are extremely responsible and very dignified in the way they conduct themselves. I’m very proud of them.” He had added, “As a father, all I can do is hope that nobody breaks their heart.”
