After looking for the news related to the event on the Internet with the keywords ‘Rahul Gandhi at Berggruen institute’ and found an article published in HuffPost written by Berggruen Institute president Nicolas Berggruen. The video of the same event was also found.
It was one of the events Rahul Gandhi attended during his two-week visit to The United States of America, and he met Nathalia Ramos at the same event at the Berggruen Institute in Los Angeles in September 2017, where they both had participated at an event.
The same image had gone viral in 2019, with several posts claiming that Rahul Gandhi met a pornstar in the United States, which was later debunked by AFP India.
Also, it is to be noted that there are no reports of Rahul Gandhi having kids.
Therefore, the claims that Rahul Gandhi is married to a Columbian and they have two kids are completely false. The woman in the picture is Nathalia Ramos who is an actor and they met in an event years ago.
