Amy and BOD take a bite out of the Big Apple
Ireland's royal couple Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman have jetted off to New York on holidays.
They are known for keeping their fans updated via social media and this time was no different.
Brian posted a snap of the weather forecast which read a scorching 34 degrees saying: "Note to self, pack extra talc".
He then shared a sweet snap of the pair reclining on the plane and captioned it "NYC baby".
It looks like they're travelling without their children, Sadie (2) and nine-month-old Billy.
