Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal and his South African model girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades became proud parents to a baby boy recently and the new mother cannot stop sharing every phase of her new beginning in life with Instagram updates.
After sharing cute moments with the new-born, Gabriella recently shared pictures on her Instagram stories showing her amazing body transformation in her postpartum period, just 11 days post delivery.
Gabriella, as her post shows has lost much weight and much of the swelling of the belly and she credits her new look to continuous workout sessions.
In the first photo, Gabriella revealing her look one week before her delivery, mentioned that she never stopped working out moderately even when she was pregnant and later unfolded the journey of gaining 21 kgs in 9 months.
"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 the 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," she wrote.
"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," Gabriella further wrote in her post.

On her second Instagram story, Gabriella Demetriades stated how she was least bothered about her looks after her delivery and gave priority to her feelings. "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"
In the last picture of her transformation, Gabriella gave a sneak peak of her lean body and 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 it, 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 do take time, so be patient with your body and your mind."
The couple named their little bundle of joy Arik. Arjun has two daughters - Mahikaa, 17, and Myra, 14 - with his estranged wife Mehr.
