The much-in-love couple, Arjun and Gabriella are one of the most sought-after couples of the glamour world. It was in April 2019, when Arjun had surprised all his fans by sharing a monochrome picture of his pregnant girlfriend, Gabriella Demetriades on his social media handle. On July 18, 2019, Arjun and Gabriella had become proud parents of a baby boy. The lovely couple had named their cotton ball, Arik Rampal, and often shares glimpses of their family pictures. Due to the lockdown, the couple had gotten much-needed time with their little one.
In an interview with The Times of India, Gabriella talks about the lockdown being a blessing in disguise as she got an opportunity to spend time with her 10-month-old son, Arik. Talking about the same, she stated, “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.”
Gabriella also opens up about pursuing her dream of becoming a fashion designer even after being pregnant. Model-cum-actress, Gabriella was working throughout the course of her pregnancy. In the same interview, she retorts that she continued with her work even after Arik’s birth and has shared the responsibility of raising her son with beau, Arjun Rampal.

Due to the lockdown, Arjun and Gabriella were stuck in Karjat with their son, Arik. In an interview with Mid Day, Arjun had stated that he and Gabriella had decided to stay back due to the pandemic. While Mumbai is not very far from Karjat, the couple had decided not to travel for the safety of Arik. Talking about the same, he had said, “We decided to stay back for my son’s safety. While he is too young now, this will be a story to tell him when he grows older. Besides, Mumbai is just a few hours away, and hence, easily accessible in case of an emergency.”
The doting couple, who rarely gets time with their little munchkin due to their hectic schedule is cherishing every moment of the lockdown. On April 13, 2020, Gabriella had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared an adorable family picture with Arjun and Arik. In the picture, Arik was seen playing with his mommy’s hair. Gabriella had captioned the picture as “A family portrait.”
After the birth of Arik, in an interview with the Mid-Day, Gabriella had talked about motherhood. She had shared how she was unsure of having a baby and had said, "I was never one of those people who thought of having a baby. I am actually the youngest of my friends, and we would have conversations such as 'ok, is it time to have a baby yet?'. I would even look at people having babies, and think 'I don't know if I want to do this'. But it all happened very organically, and it may sound like a cliche now, but it's the best thing that's ever happened to me. I used to think I was in love (with Rampal), but then Arik happened (laughs)." (Also Read: Sajid Khan Pens An Emotional Note For Late Brother, Wajid Khan, Says, 'You Are With Papa')
