With less than three months of marital bliss; you might expect Nancy Shevell and Paul McCartney to still be relishing in the honeymoon period and opt for a post-festive getaway alone.
But the sociable couple have chosen to holiday with designer Ralph Lauren and his family; including fellow newlyweds Lauren Bush and David Lauren in Jamaica.
The group were seen soaking up the sunshine together, but the former Beatle clearly only had eyes for his wife as he was seen scooping her into his arms and lifting her from the floor.

The duo, who married in a civil ceremony at Old Marylebone Town Hall last October, were also joined by Paul's children James and Stella, from his relationship with Linda, and Beatrice, from Heather Mills.
Nancy typically defied her 51 years, looking effortlessly beautiful in a bright pink bikini.
While she was undeniably slender, her trim figure suited her tall supermodel stature and she has maintained curves in all the right places with shapely thighs and a plentiful cleavage.

She was adventurous by stepping into the water rather than just topping up her tan on a lounger.
And she put vanity aside by wearing goggles and a breathing device to have a go at snorkeling.
But despite being in the company of the Lauren family - and even Paul's children - she seemed most content when it was just the two of them strolling through the grounds.

The record will also feature a collection of tracks McCartney grew up listening to as a child; and is described as 'a deeply personal journey'.
On his website, Paul explained that the name of his new album came from the lyrics of the opening number I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter, made famous by Fats Waller in 1935.
