Mom and Beti
|Here are the first close up photos of Aishwarya Rai’s daughter Aaradhya Bachchan. She’s surely as cute as a button.
Aaradhya Bachchan is not even a-year-old and to think this toddler, who has been kept away from the prying eyes of media, hogged the limelight at an event to honour her mother, actress Aishwarya Rai.
Dressed in a frock and floral hairband, Beti B grabbed all the attention with her cute antics Thursday at an event where Aishwarya Rai received the prestigious French Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters for her contribution to the arts.
The entire Bachchan family, with the exception of Jaya Bachchan, were present to support the actress. Aishwarya's parents were also there.
Entering the hall in her mother's arms, Aaradhya Bachchan didn't like it one bit when Aishwarya was called on the podium to receive the honour. Her constant cries forced her dotting dad Abhishek Bachchan to carry her outside.
Aishwarya reasoned it out saying, "It gets overwhelming for babies. That's why we get protective. We would love to share our personal moments with all of you, but we tend to take care of our babies."
The actress is thoroughly enjoying motherhood.
"I am realising what it takes to be a mother. Thank you (Abhishek) for giving me such an indefinable experience of being a mother. It surpasses everything," she said while looking at Abhishek.
The mother-daughter duo is inseparable - Beti B accompanied her Aishwarya Rai to Cannes film festival this year. They also travelled to Chicago to visit Abhishek Bachchan on the sets of "Dhoom 3".
Aradhaya Bachchan was also seen at grandfather Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday bash.
Aaradhya will celebrate her first birthday Nov 16.
