Arjun Rampal had introduced his sterling grey-eyed ladylove, South African supermodel and actress, Gabriella Demetriades on April 23, 2019, when a post from him had pleasantly surprised all his fans. Because it only was an introduction post for Gabriella as his girlfriend, but also an announcement that soon he will be becoming a father for the third time. And the day finally came when Arjun and Gabriella welcomed their first child, a baby boy and named him Arik Rampal. Since July 18, 2019, Arjun and Gabriella have breezing through their phase of parenthood and enjoying every moment with their little bundle of happiness.
During an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Instagram, Gabriella Demetriades was asked if she has ever tried getting a tattoo. Gabriella shared a picture of her tattooed forearm, where the initials ‘AR’ was inked. Now, comes the interesting part. Gabriella’s ‘AR’ tattoo symbolises her love for both of her favourite people, her beau, Arjun Rampal (AR) and their son, Arik Rampal (AR). A few days back, Arjun had given a glimpse of ‘weekend snuggle bunnies’ and it was all about the mother-son love. Posting black-and-white pictures of Gabriella and Arik, Arjun had written, “Bringing on the weekend...snuggle bunnies #fridaymood #mood #favs #myphotography.” (Also Read: Suresh Raina Gets His Wife, Priyanka And His Kids, Gracia And Rio's Names Tattooed On His Hands)
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.”
Revealing that she wanted to keep her son’s name Ari, which is a Hebrew name, but her beau, Arjun Rampal suggested Arik, which is a Hindu name, Gabriella Demetriades had shared how they wanted an easy to pronounce name for the little one. She was quoted as saying by Bombay Times, “Arik is a Hindu name. In Sanskrit it means ruler of rulers. We just loved the name. We were looking for something which was easy to pronounce. I think it is a very strong name, and it is short and easy to pronounce for my family and friends, who are not from India. I wanted to name him Ari, which is a Hebrew name. Then, Arjun came up with the name Arik.” (Also Read: Namrata Shirodkar Shows Off Her Husband, Mahesh Babu And Her Kids' Names Tattoo On Her Forearm)
