On Wednesday, late night, Arjun Rampal and his girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades took to social media and surprised everyone with the announcement of their pregnancy with the most adorable caption. Soon after their post, their close friends couldn’t wait to shower their love and wishes on the couple. While it has come as a surprise to everyone, it’s been said that the Paltan actor had kept many in dark including his close friends and wife, Mehr Jesia too.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, it’s being said that Mehr, who along with Arjun announced their separation in May, last year, has taken her husband’s good news rather sportingly. The report states, “The couple did their best to keep the pregnancy under wraps for the last six months. It turns out that several of their friends were kept in the dark too, including Mehr Jesia, Rampal’s wife of 20 years and mum to their two daughters, Mahikaa, 17, and Myra, 13. Mehr has in fact taken the news rather sportingly. Her friends say that even though they haven’t filed for divorce yet, Mehr has come to terms with the fact that Rampal has moved on personally.”

A close friend to Mehr told the tabloid, “They are still working out the financial terms of the separation. Mehr is a wonderful mother and wants to do what works best for her children.”

For those who’ve come in late, in their separation letter, Arjun and Mehr had written, “After a 20-year-long beautiful journey filled with love and beautiful memories, we would like to share, that all journeys have different paths. We feel that it is time for us to move on to different destinations henceforth.

We have always been solid when it has come to us, we will continue to be solid for each other and our loved ones, as we embark upon a new journey.

Both of us being extremely private people feel strange to be making this statement, but such are the circumstances of our lives. Where the truth can get distorted and lost.

We are a family, our love for each other is forever intact and we shall always be there for one another and most importantly, for our children Mahikaa and Myra. We would therefore appreciate our privacy through this time. Thank all for their support. Relationships can end, but love lives on.

We won’t be commenting on this any further.”
