From being boyfriend-girlfriend or each other's would-be-partners to accepting the fact that they are husband and wife, it takes some time for the couple. Actor, Abhishek Bachchan and his actress-wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had also been through this phase post their wedding when they were on their honeymoon.
For the unversed, Abhishek Bachchan had proposed to his ladylove, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a filmy way in 2007, in New York during the premiere of their film, Guru in Toronto. He had proposed to her in a dreamy way. The ring with which he had proposed to her in the Mani Ratnam film was used by him to confess his love for Aishwarya in real life too. Aishwarya was surprised by his gesture and had accepted his proposal immediately. The duo had tied the knot on April 20, 2007, and since then, making our hearts skip a beat.
In an interview with Vogue in 2016, Abhishek Bachchan had revealed how Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had jumped like a kid and was ecstatic to get clicked with Mini Mouse and Mickey Mouse when he had taken her for their honeymoon in Disneyland. He had said, "On our honeymoon, I took Ash to Disneyland! There she was, posing with Mickey and Minnie, wanting to jump into the parade! We can be irresponsible too, we can enjoy with each other."
While Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was still busy with the shooting of her upcoming movie, Jodhaa Akbar, the duo had taken out some time to jet off for their dreamy honeymoon in Disneyland. In another article of the Vogue, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was quoted as saying that it was during their flight to Bora Bora that Aishwarya had first realised that she was married when the flight attendant had addressed her as 'Mrs Bachchan'.
Stating the same, Aishwarya had shared, ''It was on the flight to our honeymoon in Bora Bora. The stewardess welcomed me on-board saying, ‘Welcome, Mrs Bachchan.' And Abhishek and I just looked at each other and burst out laughing! And it hit me, I'm married! I'm Mrs Bachchan!”
In an earlier interview with the Hindustan Times, when Abhishek Bachchan was asked, who had fallen in love at first, he had revealed that there was no realisation as such, but when they had known about their feelings, they knew that they were meant to be together. He had explained, "I’ve never asked who fell in love first, actually. I’ll have to ask her that. But the moment we got together we knew this was it."
Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan have completed 14 years of marital bliss and had welcomed their baby girl, Aaradhya Bachchan in 2011.
