No, the image doesn’t display Rahul Gandhi’s wife.


Rahul with his wife



In the above image, we can see Congress President, Rahul Gandhi posing with a lady. We received this claim to be fact-checked through our Facebook page. One of the social media users sent a message asking if the information is true.

When we searched the internet we also got similar claims from previous years that can be seen here and here. Some users even went on to claim that she is from Colombia and is Rahul Gandhi’s wife. They also added that they have two children aged 10 and 14. Come, let’s check the authenticity of this viral image.

What’s the truth?

When we started our research with a simple Google reverse image search process, we found out that the lady in the viral image is a Spanish actress namely, Nathalia Ramos. The actress has posted the pictures on both Facebook and X accounts dating back to 14, December 2017.

In her Facebook post, she wrote, “Last night with the eloquent and insightful Rahul Gandhi. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to meet and listen to so many brilliant thinkers from all parts and perspectives of the world. It is only with an open mind and open heart that we can really make the world a better place. Thank you Berggruen Institute for opening mine. #IdeasMatter.”

From that Facebook post we took a cue and searched the internet with the relevant keywords like “Rahul Gandhi at Berggruen Institute 2017” as mentioned by the actress. From there we got an article published by on 26 September 2017, with a title “Indian Prime Minister Modi Thrives On The Politics Of Hate, Says Opposition Leader Rahul Gandhi.” Interestingly, the article was written by the Berggruen Institute president Nicolas Berggruen. He also posted a tweet saying that, “It was a privilege to host Rahul Gandhi @OfficeOfRG in LA during his US tour. #IdeasMatter.”

Here, we can see that Rahul Gandhi is wearing the same outfits in both the images shared by President of Berggruen and with the actress. Likewise we also got a video from the Berggruen event attended by Rahul Gandhi. It is a 2 minute 12 seconds video with a title “Milind Deora on the Opportunities and Risks of Social Media.”

From the above video its proved that Rahul Gandhi is wearing the same dress like as in the picture shared by both actress and Berggruen President.

While we searched regarding the actress, she is spanish by birth and her full name is Nathalia Norah Ramos Cohen but she has a US citizenship. She is well known for her character of Yasmin in the 2007 film Bratz, which won her Kids Choice Award.

She also played the lead role as Nina Martin in the Nickelodeon television series “House of Anubis” at 2011. She also made an appearance in the music video for Prima J’s single “Rockstar”. 

Thus, from the above information its clear that the photo in the Facebook post is not of Rahul Gandhi’s wife but of actress Natalia Ramos and they have clicked it during the Berggruen event.

A couple of other images are also seen posted along with the viral image. These image shows Rahul Gandhi with three others. These images are found posted on Journalist, Rahul Kanwal’s Facebook page. He mentioned that the images of Rahul Gandhi with his friends at a pub were released by former Congress leader Barkha Shukla. Nowhere it is mentioned that the woman is Rahul Gandhi’s wife.


Therefore, we conclude with the available proofs that the young woman in the photo in the Facebook post is not Rahul Gandhi’s wife nor from Colombia, but Spanish-American actress Natalia Ramos.

Moreover, this same image went viral since 2017 and still it’s finding its path again to the top of the internet domain with various rumours.
