Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan enjoy a romantic date night sans Aaradhya

Aishwarya, Abhishek as well as daughter Aaradhya are in New York on a family vacation.

They may be B-town royalty, but Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan sure know how to keep it real. Every once in a while, they jet off from Mumbai to spend some quality family time.

They did the same when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan along with daughter Aaradhya recently jetted off to see Abhishek. The family first went to London and then flew down to New York, US.

Only this time they are joined by Aishwarya's brother and sister-in-law as well and will return to India in the third week of July.

The family has been enjoying walks around the Big Apple as well as some swing time with the Aaradhya. Abhishek even posted a picture of the mum-daughter duo having a go at it in a local park.

Abhi and Ash spend time shopping

The couple who were out and about the city were also spotted by enthusiastic fans who couldn't resist to take a picture with their favourite B-town couple. Naturally, the two obliged, as always and were even seen chatting with the fans.

Dressed in casuals, the couple also indulged in some shopping. Abhishek was spotted holding a huge bag. But the couple were sans daughter Aaradhya, who was presumably with her maamu.

The golden couple head out for a date night!

While this gorgeous couple made their fans super happy, they themselves indulged in some fan boy and fan girl moment when they clicked a selfie with British actor Adil Ray, while out and about in New York.

Yes, that's correct.

Abhishek and Aishwarya who are presumably fans of Citizen Khan, a popular British comedy, took a picture with its lead actor and were clearly dressed for a night out.

While Abhishek sported what looked like a black tie suit, Aishwarya was wrapped up in a black coat with a grey dress underneath. Looked like a romantic date night was planned by the two.

Of course, their five-year-old Aaradhya was nowhere in the picture, but it is a possibility that she was back at home while Abhishek took Aishwarya out. After all, this year has been tough on Aishwarya who lost her father.

Ever since she has kept a low-profile, only to shine like the diva she is at the Cannes red carpet. The yummy mummy who seems to have lost a considerable amount of weight took her daughter along for the big even as well.

And after a rather mixed bag of year Aishwarya and Abhishek are kicking back and taking some time out for each other.

They are clearly setting the precedence for busy working couples who must take time out for each other and travel together.

3 reasons couples must go for romantic travels more often

  • Experience a new place: If you love to travel and have been looking for a golden opportunity to go on a vacation, that time is now. Plan a vacation to a place that is affordable and one that you may have not seen yet with your partner. The joy of exploring a new place brings with it the opportunity to see a new side of your partner.
  • Experience a new you: Apart from seeing a new place with your partner, you also get to explore a different side of you. Living in the concrete jungle with fixed schedules may not have brought out that traveller in you, but going out and exploring a new place may.
  • Experience a new romance: Most urban couples have now become explorers in their own way. Whether it travelling within the country or abroad, almost everybody can afford a trip here and there. In doing so, you understand each other better, have each other's back and rekindle that romance.
