Why is it /rahe haim/? If the subject is a singular masculine noun?

Julia's father is being referred to respectfully, hence why we use रहे and हैं (with the anuswar).

See the "Formality and Respect" section in the Family Tips and Notes:

In formal situations and for respected people (including all elders), plural versions are used in every context. For example, with पिता (father): मेरे पिता भारत में हैं - My father is in India; उसके पिता अमेरिका से नहीं हैं - His father is not from America.
