When a man is blessed with a baby boy, he dreams of millions of things for him. Planning to give him best of the manners to thinking of passing on his treasures, he finds a partner in his baby boy. Every father dreams of the days when his son will grow up and play with him. He sees his childhood in him and prays to give him everything that he had missed in his childhood. As a baby boy grows, he becomes a shadow of his father, following his footsteps and replicating his gestures, and we can see the same in Arjun Rampal’s son, Arik Rampal.

It was on July 18, 2019, when Arjun Rampal had welcomed a baby boy named, Arik with his girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades. It was after one year of teasing their fans with glimpses of their baby boy that on his first birthday, the couple had shared the first full pictures of their son.

Taking to his IG handle, Arjun Rampal shared a video with his new gym partner. Yes, his son, Arik has become his gym partner now as, in the video, we can see Arjun and Arik sitting on a bench and the baby boy trying his best to pull the weights.

In an interview with the GQ India, Arjun Rampal had shared the story of the moment when his ladylove, Gabriella Demetriades had told him that she's pregnant. Arjun had said, "It wasn’t planned. I was going through a really rough time. Then my mother passed away on October 27. We’d gone to immerse her ashes in the Ganges at Rishikesh, and when we came back Gabriella told me that she was pregnant. Life is funny. One life had been lost, but here was the universe giving me a new life, a gift. This is a baby we so wanted to have."
Arjun had also talked about how the lockdown has come as a blessing in disguise as he had gotten time to spend with his little one and had become a hands-on dad. Arjun Rampal had said, "It’s been a blessing in terms of getting to spend time with the family. I had a packed calendar, but everything came to a halt with Covid-19. On the plus side, I’ve gotten to be with Arik in a way I wasn’t able to with Mahikaa and Myra because I was working non-stop. We’ve been really hands-on with Arik because we haven’t had much help since his nanny went home. We’ve been doing everything – taking care of him in shifts, waking up at night, changing diapers… So many diapers! Who knew a little kid could make so many poops in a day? But seriously, spending all this time with him has made me envious of mothers who get to do this full-time. I wish I could too."
