Amy Huberman and hubbie Brian O'Driscoll will be taking a well-deserved holiday once he finally hangs up his boots.
The diminutive actress revealed how they're looking forward to enjoying some much-needed down time once the whistle is finally blown on his professional career.
Speaking about their plans for the summer, now that Brian will be retired, Amy (35) said a proper holiday is definitely on the cards.
"We haven't actually booked anything yet but yeah, we'll definitely go away. We have some weddings and stuff coming up so we might make longer trips out of them," she told the Herald.
She added how she has been "going through the emotions" for the past number of months, as O'Driscoll enters his final weeks of playing for Leinster.
Describing it as "the long goodbye", she said the future is going to be "exciting" for them as they enter a new chapter of their lives.
For the past number of years, the couple have had to schedule every holiday around 35-year-old O'Driscoll's tight sporting schedule, with just a few weeks off every summer.
But now, a whole new world of opportunity has opened up to the pair -- with hints that they could even head to the US for the sake of Amy's career.
She has been a constant rock of support to her other half, who became the most capped player in rugby union history earlier this year.
And his father, Frank, has said he may now have to pay back the favour and put Amy's career first once his playing career comes to an end.
"Amy's career could take them abroad, so the future is bright for him and he's optimistic.
"Although deep down Brian always worries about the future, that's the nature of the beast," he said.
Amy spent time in the States last February when she attended some production meetings in LA and was also at a glamorous Oscar Wilde event.
She previously filmed a pilot for NBC show Animal Practice and has expressed a keen interest in working abroad.
However, her Grand-Slam winning hubbie's career isn't quite over yet. Last Friday, saw Leinster defeating Ulster in the RD Pro 12 and the boys in blue will now take on Edinburgh this Saturday in the RDS.
