It is raining good news for the inmates of the glamour world. An array of celebs had announced their togetherness to the world in their own unique way (thus shattering millions of hearts), and many others welcomed a little dewdrop of happiness in their lives. Falling in the latter category is Bollywood’s 46-year-old heartthrob, Arjun Rampal and his model-girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades. After their brief courtship period, Arjun and Gabriella had posted an announcement of their relationship and their ‘new innings’ in life in April, 2019.

Arjun Rampal had just started to introduce his new ladylove, South African supermodel and actress, Gabriella Demetriades with 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." And it was on July 18, 2019, when baby Arik Rampal was born to them.
Both Arjun Rampal and his ladylove, Gabriella Demetriades are already seen breezing through their phase of parenthood and often share close-ups of their son, Arik Rampal's little fingers on social media, until today. Today, Gabriella took to her Instagram story and posted the first full-length proper side glimpse of their newborn son, Arik Rampal. 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 wrote, “Little smalls” and beneath her image, she wrote, “I am a snack”. Here’s the drool-worthy image:
Well, to give you another latest update, hardly 11 days after delivering her firstborn, Gabriella Demetriades had looked ravishing as she posted her weight loss diaries during and after her post-partum journey. 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." (Also Read: Shveta Salve Was Worried For Her International Breastfeeding Week Picture That She Might Get Trolled)
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 rather than how she looks. 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."

Some sheer goals, isn’t she? Arjun Rampal, during an interview with the Hindustan Times, had shared that his last five years had almost been like hell. Bollywood’s Daddy was quoted as saying, “It’s been sheer hell for the last five years but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, doesn’t it?” Arjun had also shared how he met Gabriella for the first time. He had replied to a media portal on being asked about the same, “Ah, that’s a question to ask. We met through common friends. So, what can I say? That she stalked me? Wishful thinking that, buddy! It’s only been a year since we started dating and here we are. For keeps. And I must add that it was of prime importance that my daughters should accept her as part of the family. I’m blessed that they have, no questions asked.”
