It’s been roughly a month since Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades gave birth to their son Arik. The couple has been in headlines ever since Arjun took to his official social media handle to announce Gabriella’s pregnancy in April, after keeping it a secret for almost six months. They had made their relationship official a long time ago by posting photos from their beach vacations as well as social appearances.
Now after giving birth to their little munchkin, in an interview with Mid-Day, Gabriella opened up about her pregnancy days, the bond Arjun Rampal’s daughters and their son share, and much more.
The 32-year-old South African Model shared that being the youngest of her friends she never thought of having a baby. She 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)."
Talking about her pregnancy days, Gabriella said, "All during the pregnancy, which was hard, my mother would tell me, 'wait till you see the baby'. While Arjun has done this before, and so, was calm, and was with me every step of the way, I didn't have a reference point. I think he is going to be a great dad. He is so hands-on that sometimes I say 'give me my son back'."
The 46-year-old actor separated from Mehr Jesia last year after 20 years of marriage. They are parents to two teenage daughters, Maahika and Myra. Talking about Arjun's daughters' bonding with Arik, Gabriella said, "They love him. I see the relationship they have with Arjun, and it's one of respect but they are friends too. I wish to have the same one with Arik when he grows up."
