Motherhood is about finding joy in every moment spent with your little bundle of joy and cherishing it for eternity. Even before your little one is born, you start collecting those memories that will make your motherhood journey a beautiful one, be it the first ultrasound, first kick in your belly or even the painful experience of giving birth. There will be millions of moments with the little bundle of joy that will melt your heart and the most special one will always be your child calling ‘ma’ that will fade everything in the world away. Gabriella Demetriades is enjoying her motherhood journey with her munchkin, Arik Rampal and making memories to be cherished for the lifetime.

It was more than a year ago when Arjun Rampal and Gabriella Demetriades had welcomed their firstborn, a son whom they have named Arik Rampal. Some days ago, Gabriella and Arjun had given a sneak-peek into their lazy weekend with little goofball, Arik. The beautiful picture had encompassed the mother-son duo in the covers on the couch and was clicked by the doting daddy, Arjun. While Gabriella had captioned the pictures as "Weekend started early! #partytime #couchparty #snugglebuddy photography by daddy @rampal72", Arjun had written, “Bringing on the weekend...snuggle bunnies #fridaymood #mood #favs #myphotography.”
Gabriella Demetriades is taking part in an initiative to support pregnant women across Mumbai. Elaborating on the initiative she is becoming a part of and revealing more about their work, Gabriella posted a sunkissed picture with her son, Arik Rampal on her IG feed. The picture speaks volumes of mother-son love and she captioned it as “We will be tying up with @snehamumbai_official for this great initiative #everybirthcounts Maternal & Newborn Health Programme. SNEHA addresses the nutritional needs of pregnant women, mothers who have newly delivered and children in 7 Municipal Corporations across Mumbai. We work with local health post staff to develop effective processes, track efficiency, and facilitate community awareness building. We facilitate the formation of voluntary women’s groups called Mahila Aarogya Samitis (MAS) that can address community health needs and promote healthy practices, particularly for maternal and newborn health. These groups’ presence within the community enables them to reach more women, specifically in emergencies. We build their capacity to enable them to serve as an effective resource pool for their community.”
A few days ago, during an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Instagram, Gabriella Demetriades was asked if she has ever tried getting a tattoo. Gabriella had shared a picture of her tattooed forearm, where the initials ‘AR’ was inked. Now, comes the interesting part. Gabriella’s ‘AR’ tattoo had symbolised her love for both of her favourite people, her beau, Arjun Rampal (AR) and their son, Arik Rampal (AR).

For the past one year, Arjun Rampal and Gabriella Demetriades had teased their fans with glimpses of their little munchkin, Arik Rampal. But finally, on his first birthday, the proud parents had not only shared the first proper pictures of Arik but had also tried to squeeze in all the memories they had made with the little one in their birthday posts. While Arjun had captioned his post as "On Arik’s first birthday, it’s time to share his love with my insta family. Thank you all for your patience and all the love you have poured upon us. Meet the little Rampal. Arik. Happy birthday my boy", Gabriella had written, "Happy 1 to the love of my life. Thank you for giving me joy and purpose beyond what I could have ever imagined. Grateful to watch you become a little human... you are so loved and we are so lucky. @arikrampal19." Here are two pictures from the lot:
In an interview with The Times Of India, Gabriella Demetriades had revealed how she had worked throughout her pregnancy and lockdown came as a blessing for her. Calling it an opportunity to spend time with her son, Arik Rampal, Gabriella had said, “I was working even when I was 9 months pregnant. After I became a mother, I still continued to work and shared responsibilities of raising my son Arik with Arjun. It’s a blessing that with this lockdown he got my undivided attention. I spend a lot of time with him. I show him so many games, but he gets busy with whatever he wants to play with. He stumbles a lot as he has started crawling fast these days.” (Also Read: Celina's Son, Arthur Turned 3, Talks About Him Being In Incubator And Living With The Loss Of Twin)
