Amir Khan and his wife have announced that they are expecting their first child after just a few months of marriage.
The couple made it clear that they wanted to start a family soon after getting married when they tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in the boxer's home town of Bolton, which followed a traditional Islamic ceremony in New York where Faryal was a political science student. At the time of the wedding, Amir said: "I've lived the young life, I've done everything I've wanted to do. Now is the right time to settle down and start my own family."
The couple's relationship has not been plain sailing, with rumours about Amir cheating with various women whilst on holiday in Marbella, but they appear to have put any allegations behind them and are looking to the future.
The couple's parents are clearly happy with the news. Amir said: "Our families are delighted and we’re blessed to have their support and guidance." He went on to add how much the couple themselves are looking forward to having children: "It’s still early days but we’re both very excited and can’t wait to be parents."
