Arjun Rampal and Gabriella Demetriades first met at an Indian Premier League (IPL) after-party in 2009. Arjun was quoted as saying, "We met through common friends. So, what can I say? That she stalked me? Wishful thinking that, buddy! It's only been a year since we started dating and here we are. For keeps. And I must add that it was of prime importance that my daughters should accept her as a part of the family. I'm blessed that they have, no questions asked."
Arjun Rampal was previously married to former Miss India Mehr Jesia. They have two daughters, Maahika and Myra. Both Maahika and Myra were by their dad's side while Gabriella was in the hospital for her delivery.
When Gabriella became pregnant, Arjun shared a sweet post on social media announcing the happy news to the world. He shared this picture and wrote, "Blessed to have you and start all over again....thank you baby for this baby."
Arjun and Gabriella didn't make their relationship official for quite some time. Their social media posts for each other, however, always gave it away. It was an open secret that they were a couple and much in love.
Before their baby was born, Arjun Rampal and Gabriella Demetriades jetted off for a babymoon to the Maldives. Arjun had also hosted a baby shower for his lady love where he himself turned DJ. The white-themed party was attended by Arjun's daughter Mahikaa, sister Komal and close friends.

Speaking about her film career, Gabriella Demetriades has appeared in a special song, Neelakasham Kaividum, in the Malayalam movie Red Wine. She also appeared in a music video opposite Aditya Narayan in his single Tu Hi Pyar Hai. She was also seen in the movie Sonali Cable.

Apparently, Holi is Gabriella's favourite Indian festival. She posted this picture on Instagram and captioned it, "My forever favorite holiday... for all things I love about this place. #happyholi to my first love."
Gabriella recently shared three photos on her Instagram stories that described her journey of shedding the extra kilos she gained during pregnancy. While it's a known fact that it takes quite some time to shed the post-pregnancy weight, the model has returned to her old self merely 11 days after giving birth.
Along with the photos, Gabriella wrote, "All I can say is, don't stop your (fitness) regime during pregnancy. Move, eat well and treat yourself every now and again. Prenatal yoga really helped keep my pelvic floor strong."
She further advised, "Also remember, everyone is different and all good things take time. So, be patient with your body and mind."
Here's congratulating and warm wishes to the new mother. We are sure you will be a great mother.
