Gabriella Demetriades welcomed a baby boy with Arjun Rampal on July 18. The adorable couple has been sharing several glimpses of their new-born, who they have named Arik. Newbie mom Gabriella has hit the gym and within 11 days of delivering her baby, the model has shed a lot of pregnancy weight. Gabriella chronicled her journey in a series of pictures, describing her feelings.
Sharing a click which was taken three weeks before delivery, Gabriella revealed that she had gained 21 kilos in the ninth month. “So, this was me 3 weeks ago... a week before giving birth to my beautiful boy (almost 10 pounds of him) I had picked up 21 kgs in my 9th month of pregnancy. This seems like a story everyone wants to hear. It was not easy to watch my body go through that, however, I trusted the process. I continued working out, not perhaps the same level of training I was used to but I worked out almost 5 days a week. I ate what I wanted but in moderation and I rested when my body told me to,” shared Gabriella.
In the second picture the South African actor-model shared, “I am blessed and grateful to have had a natural delivery and I have to say, the body is an amazing thing. I watched as I brought life into this world and I couldn't care less about what I looked like doing it. We care so much about how we look and little about how we actually feel. 21 kgs heavier and I never felt better. All I really cared about is that my baby was happy and healthy. But now; I'm on the road to getting my old self back. I get asked all the time what my regime is, what I'm eating. What I'm doing."
And in her last post, Gabriella shared her transformation, after working out in the gym. Sharing her picture from the gym, 11 days post the birth of her healthy boy, Gabriella wrote, “This photo was taken 11 days after delivery. It's a long way from where it was but the body is an amazing thing. All I can say is, don't stop your regime during pregnancy. Move, eat well and treat yourself every now and again. Prenatal yoga really helped keep my pelvic floor strong. Also remember everyone is different and all good things take time. So, be patient with your body and mind."
Arjun and Gabriella announced in April that they were expecting their first baby. Speaking about his relationship with Gabriella, Arjun had told Mumbai Mirror, “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.”
