Aishwarya-Abhishek Bachchan off to Goa with Beti B!
Bollywood actors Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan take their first holiday with their little daughter
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan’s two-and-a-half-month-old daughter took her first flight – not to London but to our very own Goa – with her folks. The baby is on her maiden journey outside Mumbai after she was born on November 16, 2011. A newspaper reported that Aishwarya, Abhishek, Beti B and a nanny left for a two-day holiday to the popular Indian tourist destination after bringing in Abhishek’s birthday on February 5. Abhishek had to reportedly wrap up his Bol Bachchan shoot early so that he could take a break. Aishwarya, too, needed to feel some fresh air, as she has stepped out only twice post pregnancy – first for the Oprah Winfrey party and second, for Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’Souza’s wedding reception.

Aishwarya Rai’s baby girl’s name to begin with ‘Aa’
Almost two months after Beti B was born, the Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan are yet to come up with a name for her. Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek had asked their fans for suggestions and Abhishek’s Twitter account was full of possible names for the past few weeks. While everyone’s still mum about the final name, Abhishek’s close friend spilled the beans on their plans. The Bachchans have narrowed down their options to two names and both begin with double A. Abhi and Ash have approved the names and now it is up to the senior Bachchan to decide which will better suit Beti B, or Bitiya – as Big B likes to call her. The buzz is also that the name will be officially announced only on Makar Sankranti, which falls on January 15 this year. The period till then is supposedly very inauspicious. Ahem.

Amitabh Bachchan prefers ‘Bitiya’ to ‘Beti B’
Big B thinks it’s a good nickname for Abhishek-Aishwarya’s daughter
Amitabh Bachchan says his family has not finalised the name of Abhishek and Aishwarya’s child yet. But for now, he prefers calling his grandchild ‘Bitiya’ (little daughter). Bachchan does not seem to like the nickname ‘Beti B’ too much. It was picked up by Abhishek from actor Shahana Goswami’s congratulatory tweet to him. He liked it so much that he started using it as an ‘official nickname’. Abhishek had tweeted, “Till we find a name for the little lady a dear friend @ShahanaGoswami gave me a great one. We have Sr B and Jr B already so… Beti B!” But Sr Bachchan is a bit touchy about this we guess, and so affectionately calls his granddaughter, Bitiya. Click here to read more
