Congratulations! Aishwarya and Abhishek have a new addition to their family

The couple have taken another crucial step for their family!

For the past one month, Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan have been stationed in New York City, US. They even took their five-year-old Aaradhya along. And were joined later by Aishwarya's mother Vrinda as well as brother Aditya and his family.

But while it looked like a regular Bachchan family summer vacation, the truth was far from it. The golden couple of Bollywood were busy adding another prized possession to their family.

Yes, you read that right.

A new addition to Bachchan family

The couple not only went for a vacation to the Big Apple, they also went to complete an important family task. And, it looks like they have finally succeeded.

After acquiring a sprawling property in Dubai’s Sanctuary Falls in Jumeirah Golf Estates a few years back, the couple have now bought a plush apartment in Manhattan, New York, and are adding it to their list of palatial homes.

A source revealed the details of the new apartment and its designs to an entertainment daily.

"Ash and Abhishek bought the apartment in NYC more than a year ago. Only people in the family and close friends know about it as the couple don’t want their privacy to be invaded. It’s a beautiful and spacious apartment with a great view of Central Park. CP is very close and the Bachchans love going for a walk there," he said.

The couple while staying at their new home, also took Aaradhya along for a walk to the park and daddy dearest posted a picture of the mum and daughter duo enjoying some time together.

Aishwarya has designed their new apartment

As for the decor and design of the house, the source says Aishwarya has tastefully done up their new home, just as she did her Dubai home.

"They have been spotted by many while roaming around the city or Ash and Aaradhya on a swing. The apartment has been tastefully done up by Aishwarya who has done up their Dubai villa too. They were there for a month but now Abhishek has returned as the Pro Kabaddi League starts from next week," revealed the source.

While Abhishek has returned to India to cheer for his Kabaddi team, Aishwarya and the rest of the family will come back to India by the end of this week. The source confirms, "Ash and the rest of the family will return within this week.”

Why have they chosen New York City?

If you recall, we shared with you last year that it was in the Big Apple that Abhishek popped the question to Aishwarya and she agreed to marry him. Therefore, the city has a special place in their hearts.

He even stated in an interview that they both loved the city because of this reason, "I think it’s when I proposed to her in NY. It’s my favourite holiday memory too."

But, this will not be the second time the Bachchan family has bought a home abroad.

Bachchan homes in other countries

Apart from Aishwarya and Abhishek's Dubai home, their parents Amitabh and Jaya also own a home in France.

Reportedly in 2011, after celebrating their wedding anniversary, Amitabh gifted Jaya a palatial home in a small French town and the family often goes there to spend their vacations together.

While the home in France was an emotional decision, Abhi and Ash's decision to buy a home in New York city is also an emotional one.

Lets not forget, property is certainly a wise investment and it looks like these the Bachchan family is making all the right decisions. We wish them the best!
