The image is viral on Twitter.

Vikram Hegde, one of the co-founders of Postcard News, also tweeted the image with the fake claim of Rahul Gandhi having two kids from a secret marriage.

Claim:

The lady in the viral image is Rahul Gandhi's secret wife.

Fact Check:

The Logical Indian did a reverse image search and found the same image was published on the verified Instagram page of Nathalia Ramos, a Spanish-American actor appearing in television series. She had posted the image on September 15, 2017.

We found she had also posted the same image on Twitter on September 14, 2017.

The same image was also viral in 2019 when multiple Twitter users had shared it with a Hindi caption which said, "We have heard Wikileaks has exposed Rahul Vinci is married. He has two kids who live in London. His wife is Colombian. First kid is 14-year-old boy Niyak and the other is a 10-year-old girl Mainak. Rahul Gandhi is misleading the nation by calling himself unmarried."

The Logical Indian also searched WikiLeaks and found no relevant content in the above context.

Hence, an image of Rahul Gandhi with a Spanish-American actor Nathalia Ramos is viral on social media with the false claim.
