Ash and 10-month-old Aaradhya were off to Chicago to join Abhishek, who is shooting for Dhoom: 3, when the cameras snapped the first clear pictures of the tiny tot
Not even the ever-vigilant Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her entourage could prevent 10-month-old Aaradhya's face being photographed - properly, for the first time - as they negotiated Mumbai airport on their way to Chicago.
From the little we can tell, Aaradhya's been revealed as a miniature version of her father, dark eyes and all. There's no trace of light-skinned, light-eyed Ash at all but, of course, it's early days yet.
Poor little Aaradhya didn't seem in the least bit pleased to be surrounded by a crowd of cameras and we can't blame Ash for taking such pains to hide her little daughter's face. Sadly, though, the tiny mite will have to get used to it because her celebrity parents and grandparents are followed by paparazzi wherever they go.
Ash and Aaradhya were headed to Chicago, at the behest of Abhishek Bachchan who is shooting there for Dhoom: 3
and has summoned his wife and daughter after watching co-star Aamir Khan hang out with his family, wife Kiran Rao and son Azad.
Never mind the pesky cameras, Aaradhya. The littlest Bachchan has a fun time to look forward to in the Windy City, where she'll probably make her very first friend - little Azad Rao Khan, who is the same age as Aaradhya.
